Could Un De Sceaux Win the Champion Chase?

One horse race that most if not all fans of the sport over in Ireland will be betting on this week is the Boylesports Champion Chase, and as normal that race is going to be running at the Punchestown and the race itself is starting at 17:30 tomorrow the 30th of April 2019.

Just be aware though that from a betting point of view there is some difference of opinion regarding the winning chances of some of the horses in that race by odds  compilers at different betting sites, and as such two that do appear to be offering fair each-way betting terms are Paddy Power and Betfair.

The last time I checked those two betting sites ante post betting markets they were both offering three places at a fifth of the win odds instead of the one quarter the win odds to two places most other bookies were offering on their ante post betting markets.

Min at 8/13 is heading the betting markets at most betting sites, however at those odds there is no real value to be had by backing it, and the standout bet if you are prepared to take a chance on the second favourite winning this race is Un De Sceaux at 11/4, so do keep that horse in mind as it would be no major surprise if it did win.

Ante Post Third Favourite

Moving onto the next horse in the betting, well that horse is Great Field and it should pose too many problems for you to find plenty of betting sites offering some decent odds on it winning this race, with the more generous bookies having it chalked up at odds of around 7/1.

In fact, that horse does have a good chance of getting placed in the top three positions of this race and if anything unexpected does happen to the first or second favourite then it could fill a higher position in the race of course!

No Hopers

The horses that are not attracting much if any cash on the ante post betting markets include the likes of Castlegrace Paddy at 20/1, however some of you out there may fancy placing an each-way bet if you do find a bookie paying out to three places, for that could be an interesting bet if any of the top three horses fail to make the grade this year.

Moving onto the next horse in the betting, well that is Hell’s Kitchen but not many punters are going to be backing that horse no matter how high the odds they are offered, but for reference most bookies have it chalked up as a 25/1 chance.

The is of course always going to be an outsider in every race and this year that honour falls on Ordinary World and with the odds being offered on that horse generally being around the 40/1 mark I doubt there will be many takers, but keep in mind a betting exchange will be the place to get much higher odds if you do fancy backing it!
