2023 Summer Plate Handicap Chase Betting Odds at Market Rasen racecourse

Saturday, 22 July 2023

We’ve got a long distance encounter in the form of the Unibet Summer Plate Handicap Chase, with Courtland and Francky Du Berlais the two stablemates who are heading the betting. There are lots of lively competitors including La Domaniale, Gloire D’athon and Born Famous, with the latter landing a string of wins.

Much comes down to which horse boasts the prerequisite stamina to land the spoils, with Courtland having demonstrated his ability over similar distances. A maximum of sixteen runners will go to post and you should look out for juicy each-way odds in order to get a chance to land some place money.

2023 Summer Plate Handicap Chase Tips

Courtland is the horse who boasts excellent form coming into the Unibet Summer Plate Handicap Chase, with Peter Bowen having seen his charge land a hat-trick of wins. At the end of May, the runner landed the spoils at Worcester before another win at the same track in June. The horse’s last victory came at Market Rasen in early July.

Francky Du Berlais has shown that he’s a capable performer, with the ten-year-old bidding for a final hurrah and the runner was last seen finishing third at Market Rasen. This is a horse that has run in a Grand National during this calendar year, with the big issue potentially being the amount of weight needing to be carried.

La Domaniale comes into this race off the back of a victory, with the seven-year-old having looked impressive when winning a handicap chase over two miles and four furlongs. The Jonjo O’Neill-trained runner previously ran well at Cheltenham, although Born Famous has enjoyed that winning feeling a number of times this season.

The horse has now enjoyed four successive victories, with three of them coming at Perth although perhaps it’s the win recorded at Aintree that is the most telling. That came over three miles, half a furlong, with Iain Jardine having a runner that should be able to cover the distance no problem and this looks to be the best each-way chance.
