2022 Charlie Hall Chase Betting Odds at Wetherby racecourse

Saturday, 29 October 2022

The Charlie Hall Chase takes pride of place in the National Hunt racing calendar and it’s one of the most prestigious UK races on the circuit. This is a race that has a long-term sponsorship deal with leading bookmaker bet365, with the runners and riders competing over a distance of three miles and the event takes place either in late October or early November.

Only a small field ended up competing in the 2022 Charlie Hall Chase for a race where Bravemansgame, Ahoy Senor and Eldorado Allen were trading among the favourites, with a maximum of twenty runners allowed to line up on an annual basis. The going tend to be good to soft or soft depending on the amount of rainfall that has taken place.

This is a historic race, with the first Charlie Hall Chase taking place in 1969, with horses aged five or older able to enter and compete for a winner’s purse which is greater than £50,000. It’s a Grade 2 event and there have been some notable winners on the Wetherby Racecard over the past few years.

There have been six different horses that have won the Charlie Hall Chase on more than one occasion. Wayward Lad was able to secure a double in 1983 and 1985, with Celtic Shot landing the spoils in consecutive years of 1990 and 1991. Two years later, Barton Bank was in the winners’ enclosure and then scored in 1995 in the same race.

One Man was a legendary grey horse that was able to secure a win in 1996 before returning to Wetherby and delivering the goods in 1997. Two years down the line, See More Business was on target in 1999 and there was a triumph in the millennium year further down the line.

Ollie Magern won the 2003 and 2005 Charlie Hall Chase, with Fusil Raffles claiming the spoils in 2021. This was the first time a six-year-old had won since Bristol De Mai scored in 2017.
