2023 Troytown Handicap Chase Betting Odds at Navan racecourse

Sunday, 19 November 2023

Trainer Gordon Elliott could be mob-handed when it comes to the 2023 Troytown Handicap Chase, with the Irish handler having Hollow Games in the race along with a spate of other runners. Gevrey, Chemical Energy and Frontal Assault are some of the other stablemates who could be a good each-way bet for this encounter at Navan Racecourse.

However, there are plenty of other horses who have a lively chance of victory. This includes Largy Debut who has achieved back to back runner-up performances and Henry de Bromhead will have high hopes of another bright display here. Thedevilscoachman returns to the track for trainer Noel Meade and the seven-year-old is another one for the shortlist.

Hollow Games finished third out of twenty-two runners at Galway Racecourse back in August, with the Gordon Elliott-trained charge hitting the frame in the Galway Plate, with the horse demonstrating plenty of stamina over two miles, six and a half furlongs. There was previously a fourth-placed finish in a handicap chase at Punchestown.

Largy Debut runs for trainer Henry de Bromhead and the horse was last seen finishing second out of twelve runners at Limerick in the Ladbrokes Munster National Handicap Chase. That came after a previous runner-up performance in a Beginners Chase at Gowran Park over two miles and four furlongs on heavy ground.

Thedevilscoachman returns after a long lay-off and the JP McManus-owned runner was able to score at Limerick back in March when winning a Novice Chase. The horse pulled up in the Irish Grand National Chase, with the Noel Meade-trained runner trading at a similar price to Gevrey who was able to land a victory last time out at Limerick.

The seven-year-old appears to be favourably handicapped and was able to win at odds of 6/1 over three miles on soft ground. Back in April, there was also a second placed finish in the Irish Grand National at odds of 28/1 and this looks like the sort of runner who could go well at Navan, with the horse a likely finisher.
