2016 Betfair Chase Betting Preview PT 3

Irish Cavalier has had a busy season so far this year and he's already been out twice – which is a bit rare for a lot of runners at this point in the National Hunt season. The Rebecca Curtis trainee has emerged as one of the hot younger stars on the chasing circuit and the seven-year-old son of Aussie Rules looks to be finally ready to tangle with some of the best.


He had been one of those 30/1 or 40/1 contenders you see lining up in fields of six or seven for races like the King George or the Gold Cup but he now appears ready to go off at much more plausible prices going forward after he was able to capture the Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby over a tough field that included Menorah.

He was sent off at a 16/1 price tag on the day and will be going off shorter as the year goes on as many expect him to continue his ability to improve having really been thrown into some tough races last year. While he didn't win many of them aside from a decent handicap effort at Punchestown during the festival, you have to respect that it gave him the confidence and experience to be able to handle the pace and the testing conditions underfoot that younger jumpers will find as they contest the Cheltenham's and the Aintrees.

Right now you'll find both Silviniaco Conti and Irish Cavalier trading at a 7/1 margin to pull off the upset victory in the Betfair Chase.

A few other selections in the mix here include the likes of Seeyouatmidnight who can be backed at a 9/1 and comes into the race off a listed score at Carlisle. Outlander lines up for Gigginstown at 16s whiel Roi Des Francs represents the same owner at a price of 50s. Vezelay trades at 40/1 while Menorah looks to get things back on track at a lengthy 20/1 price.
