Racing Post Arkle Trial Novices Chase

All eyes are going to be on this weekend’s Cheltenham race meeting, and it is the Racing Post Arkle Trial Novices Chase that all punters will be avidly watching, and betting on too.

Paddy Power are our number one betting site when it comes to big races such as that one, and they are a betting site that is famed for offering all manner of consolation deals on their horse racing betting markets, in addition of course to their very high odds too.

In fact, on this year’s running of the Racing Post Arkle Trial Novices Chase on their ante post betting markets you can get some favourable terms when placing an each-way bet, those terms will see you being paid out to two places at a quarter of the win odds.

So if you do fancy betting on that race then make sure you get your bets on as early as you can do for the higher than average odds Paddy Power are offering will not be around forever!

However, if you have already been studying the form of each of the runners is that race, then the one horse that does jump off the race-card at you is Claimantakinforgan which is the current favourite at 9/4, those odds have been drifting so keep that in mind for they were 2/1 not too long ago.

Defi Du Seuil Second Favourite


Defi Du Seuil started out at 4/1 and has been backed to 10/30 and now to just 11/4 and as such that is certainly a horse that you should be taking a much closer look at from a betting point of view, for there must have been some large amounts of cash being bet on it for its odds to drop that much.

Dynamite Dollars is another horse that could win, and it is one that could be worth betting on too for you are going to be able to secure odds of 7/2 on it right now at Paddy Power, and those odds have been fairly stable over the last few days.

Other Runners to Consider

The remainder of the field do to be fair, have an uphill task if they are to worry any of the horses so far mentioned up above, and one horse that has gone from opening odds of 4/1 to 5/1 in the last day or so is Lalor, so that is an indication that there are not many people backing it.

Pingshou is another horse that isn’t seeing much significant support for it is not 7/1 from an opening price of 13/2, Jenkins at 9/1, One For Billy at 10/1 and Knocknanuss along with 20/1 Ornua at 20/1 are for diehard each-way bettors.

As for which horse has the current honour of being the complete rank outsider, well that horse is Ravenhill Road, but as is the case in these types of races there will always be plenty of punters willing to take the high odds on offer on the outsider to win which for reference are 33/1!
