2023 Sandyford Handicap Chase Betting Odds at Leopardstown racecourse

Saturday, 04 February 2023

The bookmakers will be creating lots of price boosts and extra places for their each-way market ahead of this Leopardstown showdown. Aim to secure the biggest odds about the runner that you want to back. If you can get extra places, then you don’t need to find the winner as long as your selection hits the frame.

This looks like one of the more open and competitive horse races that comprise the Leopardstown meeting, with Get My Drift and Final Orders heading the market, although Epson Du Houx is an older horse that needs to be respected and the same applies to A Wave Of The Sea. Cayd Boy is another runner near the foot of the handicaps that can run well.

One of the reasons why Get My Drift is operating as one of the favourites is because the horse is carrying less weight than many of the other pretenders in this race. The allowance of 10-10 looks to be favourable despite the runner failing to land a win this season, with the horse landing third place last time out although it was in a competitive heat.

Indeed, Appreciate It was always the likeliest winner of a Beginners Chase, although there was only one other horse too good for Get My Drift even if the biggest concern is that the runner hasn’t been in the winners’ enclosure for some time. The same can’t be said of Final Orders and there have been four straight victories for this horse.

The latest of these triumphs came on Boxing Day when winning a handicap chase at Leopardstown, so this is a horse we know can perform at the track. It’s also clear that the runner should be able to cope with bottomless ground, with Gavin Cromwell regarding this charge as one of his best chances of landing a winner at the festival.

Henry de Bromhead has an interesting prospect in Epson Du Houx and the nine-year-old has run well on two occasions this season. There was a third-placed finish out of eleven runners at Fairyhouse, with Rachael Blackmore potentially on board again and the horse ran pretty well when finishing a distant second to Energumene over two miles at Cork.
