2024 Celebration Chase Betting Odds at Sandown Park racecourse

Saturday, 27 April 2024

El Fabiolo is a talented seven-year-old who was pulled up in the recent Queen Mother Champion Chase, although he’s trading as the strong favourite to land a victory and that Cheltenham Festival disappointment was preceded by seven consecutive wins which suggests that the horse is the most likely winner.

Jonbon didn’t run at Cheltenham but reappeared at Aintree when landing a victory in the Grade 1 Melling Chase, with Gaelic Warrior running for Willie Mullins and the six-year-old has genuine claims based on the succession of wins that have been notched along the way. Edwardstone could also perform well over one mile, seven and a half furlongs.

2024 Celebration Chase Tips

Willie Mullins has a strong chance of landing a success in the bet365 Celebration Chase, with El Fabiolo returning to the track after a disappointing time in the Queen Mother Champion Chase. The horse was sent off as the 2/9 favourite but made a bad mistake earlier in the race and will now aim to bounce back with a victory at Sandown Park.

There was previously everything to like about a succession of performances including a triumph at the Dublin Racing Festival where the horse was able to comfortably win the Ladbrokes Dublin Chase. Previously to this came a triumph in the Bar One Racing Hilly Way Chase when triumphing over two miles, half a furlong.

However, there are some viable contenders in the race including Jonbon. Nicky Henderson’s horse was withdrawn from the Queen Mother due to concerns about horses in the yard last month, although the eight-year-old was able to recover by landing a success at Aintree when winning the Melling Chase over two miles, four furlongs.

Gaelic Warrior is another lively contender, with Willie Mullins seeing his charge claim the Arkle Chase when obliging by a full eight and a half lengths and a repeat of this victory might be enough to land the spoils here. This horse looks the best each-way value in the race, with Edwardstone next in the betting.
