2024 Oaksey Chase Betting Odds at Sandown Park racecourse

Saturday, 27 April 2024

Hewick was a faller last time and it remains to be seen how the horse recovers from that setback, although Rachael Blackmore’s booking will convince that the runner can go well over this relatively long trip at Sandown Park. It will be interesting to see if money comes for the favourite who has six others in the field to beat and that includes Solo and Eldorado Allen.

Fantastic Lady might benefit from carrying less weight and could be capable of running into a place. Although there are only seven horses set to run in this race, some bookmakers will still have extra places available which will allow customers to get an each-way pay out if their horse finishes third in the race overall.

2023 Oaksey Chase Tips

Hewick has landed a couple of wins this season but the horse has also taken a couple of tumbles, meaning that punters might tread warily when it comes to backing a short-priced favourite for the Oaksey Chase. The eight-year-old was a 40/1 outsider for the Boodles Gold Cup at Cheltenham and perhaps it should come as no surprise that the runner found the pace too tough.

However, that was an impressive run at Prestbury Park where the eight-year-old was one of the front runners and that came after winning at Far Hills back in October. Over two miles and five furlongs, the horse was able to oblige in the Grand National Hurdle Stakes, with this race won in America by over ten lengths and that is why the runner is trading so short.

Solo hasn’t been out of the top two this season and the horse was able to win the Coral Pendil Novices’ Chase on 25 February at Kempton Park, with the Paul Nicholls-trained charge winning over two miles, four-and-a-half furlongs. There was also a second-placed finish behind Balco Coastal in a handicap race at the same course over the festive season.

Eldorado Allen has been winless in all six outings this term although some punters might keep faith with Joe Tizzard’s charge, with the horse finishing fifth in the William Hill Handicap Chase at Aintree, with this taking place over three miles and one furlong. A repeat performance might be enough to beat his rivals on this occasion.
