2023 National Handicap Chase Betting Odds at Perth racecourse

Friday, 28 April 2023

Silver In Disguise is the betting favourite to win the BetVictor Highland National Handicap Chase, although the plain truth is that any number of horses can land a victory. Concetto has won twice and finished runner-up in the past three outings, with Flower of Scotland another runner who is trading among the market leaders and Sandy Thomson will hope to land a home victory.

Rath An Iuir and Return Fire are other experienced campaigners and we could see Lucinda Russell follow up her English Grand National win on Corach Rambler with a victory for Destiny Is All. Make sure you check out the extra place terms that are available for each-way backers so that you can make sure of a potential payout if your horse finishes further down the order.

2023 Highland National Handicap Chase Tips

Silver In Disguise is an experienced horse and heads the betting market for the BetVictor Highland National Handicap Chase, although wins have been few and far between. Although the Tim Vaughan-trained charge was able to score last time out, this was preceded by a succession of near-misses and we think there is better value to be found elsewhere.

Perhaps the bookies were taken by a win at Wetherby in early April when jockey Charlie Price rode the runner to a success against fifteen rivals, with this horse performing well over three miles and perhaps the charge can benefit from an even longer trip, although Concetto has form that immediately catches the eye.

Oliver Greenall & Josh Guerriero have high hopes for a horse who at the age of six has plenty of scope for improvement, with the runner landing back to back victories at Huntingdon and Musselburgh before finishing second more recently at Ludlow when running in a handicap chase over three miles.

Flower Of Scotland has been in the frame on each of his races this season, with Sandy Thomson’s charge running well in a recent handicap hurdle although what was more striking when running at Musselburgh in early February, with the six-year-old managed to stay on well over a distance of nearly four miles and this is one for the shortlist.
