2024 Unibet Veterans Handicap Chase Betting Odds at Sandown Park racecourse

Saturday, 06 January 2024

Ramses De Teillee is an experienced campaigner who currently heads the betting when you compare horse racing odds for the 2023 Unibet Veterans' Handicap Chase, with David Pipe’s eleven-year-old expected to be a warm order for Saturday’s showdown. However, the bookmakers make this a wide open encounter and there are several veteran horses who can run a big race.

Many punters will have happy memories of backing Snow Leopardess and the same applies to Prime Venture, Saint Xavier and Ballyandy. There is a reasonable winner’s pot up for grabs and the bookies will be offering extra places for this race as well as including it when it comes to odds boosts.

2023 Unibet Veterans' Handicap Chase Tips

Ramses De Teillee is the slight favourite to claim a victory in the 2023 Unibet Veterans' Handicap Chase, with the eleven-year-old having won the Racing TV Veterans' Handicap Chase at Warwick Racecourse in November. That was after a lengthy lay-off thanks to a wind surgery op, with the horse having had a decorated career which could yet have some mileage.

Snow Leopardess is trading at a single figure price based on previous exploits rather than current form, with Charlie Longsdon hoping that his horse is able to return to some kind of form. A strong performance in the Becher Handicap Chase at Aintree in December saw the runner finishes seventh out of twenty-two runners.

Prime Venture is a Welsh horse that has struggled to have an impact this season with two under-par performances at Ffos Las. Perhaps there will be an improvement in fortunes although Saint Xavier comes into this race with a win last time out and there was a solid victory in the Jewson Widnes Veterans' Handicap Chase.

Ballyandy will also have plenty of support and he was sent off as the 5/2 favourite in the Glenfarclas Veterans Handicap Chase at Cheltenham before finishing third. Ultimately, it’s about backing a horse that is going to get the three-mile trip and the ground will have plenty of cut at Sandown.
