2023 Chipchase Stakes Betting Odds at Newcastle racecourse

Saturday, 01 July 2023

Trainer KR Burke has a couple of the favourites when it comes to the 2023 Chipchase Stakes, with El Caballo a potential winner of a race set to go off at 12.55pm on the all-weather track at Newcastle Racecourse on Saturday. Spycatcher has also bagged a win this season and we might see this runner go close over six furlongs in this Group 3 encounter.

However, Annaf could prove a popular bet despite a lowly win rate from all of his outings this season, while Brad The Brief is one of the more intriguing runners in the race and Hugo Palmer’s six-year-old was in good nick last season. The six-year-old has the credentials to secure a victory and the same applies to the Clive Cox-trained Diligent Harry.

2023 Chipchase Stakes Tips

The 2023 Chipchase Stakes looks set to be a wide open encounter and Annaf has previously posted victories for trainer Michael Appleby. The horse was sent off as a 50/1 outsider in the King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot and managed to finish third, with connections delighted how the runner was able to perform over five furlongs. A repeat performance could be enough to land the spoils here.

Indeed, the horse has been running in esteemed company over the past few races and finished midfield at Haydock in the Betfred Temple Stakes, with El Caballo coming next in the betting for this race. The four-year-old put in a solid shift when finishing third in the recent John Of Gaunt Stakes and perhaps a shorter trip should suit on this occasion.

Brad The Brief is also capable of going well and it will be interesting to see how the six-year-old performs on his return to the track. There has been a lengthy absence since a lowly finish in the British Champions Sprint Stakes last October, although it’s hard to rule out a horse that managed to secure wins at Haydock and the Curragh last year.

Diligent Harry has previously landed a win at Newcastle this season when triumphing in the All-Weather Sprint Championships Conditions Stakes, with the horse then finishing sixth in a competitive Duke of York Clipper Stakes at York before finishing fourth in a listed race at Salisbury, with Tiber Flow a four-year-old who could also be in the mix.
