2022 Faugheen Novice Chase Betting Odds at Limerick racecourse

Monday, 26 December 2022

Gerri Colombe has been racking up the wins and the best horse racing betting sites are taking no chances with their betting odds about a runner who is now bidding to claim a victory in the Faugheen Novice Chase. Kilcruit is next in the betting market and Willie Mullins will have high hopes that the trip is suited to his runner.

Mullins also has Classic Getaway who was the winner last time out, although the Elliott-trained Mighty Potter is bidding for a consecutive hat-trick and the five-year-old might turn out to be the best each-way punt in the race. Three Stripe Life could also go well for the same stable.

2022 Faugheen Novice Chase Tips

Gerri Colombe heads to Limerick with an unbeaten record and that explains why the horse is trading at odds-on to win the Faugheen Novice Chase. The horse showed plenty of ability when winning the Irish National Hunt Steeplechase Committee Beginners Chase on 15 November over two miles and five furlongs, taking to the big obstacles in a fairly seamless fashion.

However, some might argue that the six-year-old hasn’t been severely tested and Kilcruit has more experience who has gone chasing this season after hurdling last time around. A third-placed finish in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle at Cheltenham illustrated his quality and it could be that Willie Mullins gets a tune out of the horse over fences.

Mighty Potter was actually pulled up in that Cheltenham Festival opener, with the horse having won the Bar One Racing Drinmore Novice Chase when obliging at betting odds of 3/1. The fact that the horse beat Gaillard Du Mesnil and Banbridge means that we have to respect the sort of form that could mean this is a good each-way selection.

Classic Getaway is another decent each-way shout and we might see an improvement from the performance that saw the horse land the spoils in the Noreside Catering Irish EBF Beginners Chase. Three Stripe Life was pulled up last time out although the bookies still think the runner could be involved in the shake-up here.
