2023 Rising Stars Novices Chase Betting Odds at Wincanton racecourse

Saturday, 11 November 2023

The bookmakers are running scared of Knappers Hill for a race which could well suited to the seven-year-old, although the horse was unable to win last time out. There are certainly other strong contenders in the field and that includes Might I who could go well for Harry Fry and isn’t far away from the favourite in terms of ratings.

JPR One was also successful last time out and Captain Conby is another horse that has to be respected on previous efforts, with as many as twelve runners tackling the seventeen fences at Wincanton Racecourse. The soft ground means that it could be all about finding the horse that is going to stay the best.

2023 Rising Stars Novices Chase Tips

Knappers Hill is the horse that boasts the strongest credentials when it comes to the Boodles 'Rising Stars' Novices' Chase and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the seven-year-old claim a victory in this Grade Two encounter. The Paul Nicholls-trained runner might have needed the run in a recent Novices’ Chase at Chepstow when finishing second out of four horses.

Last April, there was plenty to like about the horse’s performance in the bet365 Select Hurdle at Sandown Park, with the runner able to edge out Goshen and Theatre Glory over two miles, five and a half furlongs. Might I could be the strongest rival, with Harry Fry training a horse that finished fifth in the Prix du Cher in May.

JPR One was able to win against two other runners in a handicap chase over two miles, half a furlong on heavy ground. We can also look back on the Land And Sea Handicap at Aintree Racecourse where the same runner was able to finish fifth in a big field. There is definitely a case to be made for this charge on an each-way basis.

Captain Conby has run four times since a disappointing performance at Aintree in April, with the horse last seen finishing second to Sharjah at Tipperary. Although it was a twelve length defeat over two miles and four furlongs, there was plenty to like about a performance that came after a Beginners Chase victory at Killarney.
