2023 Denman Chase Betting Odds at Newbury racecourse

Saturday, 11 February 2023

Hitman was pulled up in his last encounter although the seven-year-old was pulled up in his previous race and that leaves a question mark over the horse when it comes to an encounter over nearly three miles. The runner had previously scored at Haydock Park before running well at Aintree and perhaps this French-bred horse will set the benchmark.

Eldorado Allen is yet to record a victory this season, with Joe Tizzard hoping that the horse produces a season-best performance in the Denman Chase, while Fanion D’Estruval could go well for Venetia Williams. Does He Know scored last time out and the Kim Bailey-trained runner is certainly capable of running into a place.

Hitman was sent off at 11/1 in the King George VI Chase on Boxing Day, with the seven-year-old getting pulled up in the race although there were mitigating circumstances for that performance and perhaps we will see the runner back in the winners’ enclosure here. The horse previously won a chase at Haydock Park when obliging over two miles and five furlongs against three other runners.

Eldorado Allen has run three times this season without a victory, although the bookies are affording the Joe Tizzard-trained charge plenty of respect and perhaps represents each-way value. The horse performed well in the King George VI Chase when finishing fourth and there was also a runner-up spot behind Protektorat.

There was also a second-placed finish behind Bravemansgame in the bet365 Charlie Hall Chase, with Fanion D’Estruval another main contender according to the betting market. It’s hard to be too confident about a runner who has failed to win any of his previous five clashes, with Venetia Williams’ charge having finished third in the William Hill Rowland Meyrick Handicap Chase.

Does He Know was an impressive winner of the Jewson Handicap Chase and that was over three miles, three-and-a-half furlongs at Cheltenham Racecourse on 13 November. It appears that wind surgery has been beneficial and it could be worth looking for the best each-way terms if you are interested in backing this runner.
