Handicap Chase Betting & Trends

The Handicap Chase is a tough race to call, with upsets the norm rather than the exception. Punters looking to back a racehorse in this event should place bets on entries that achieved better than 6th place in their previous race and are aged between 7 and 9. Also look out for Jonjo O’Neill’s entries as the trainer has a knack for winning this race.

While backing an entry promises a big payout on succesful bets, laying the favourite is the best strategy in a race that will rarely be won by the short-odds antepost favourite.
