2015 Betfair Chase Betting Tips PT 1

We have a stellar card of jumps action ahead of us on Saturday and there is a lot to look forward to already since the ante post markets for several of the graded contests are already up and firing across virtually all major UK and Irish bookmakers at the moment. 

The Betfair Chase is the Grade 1 highlight of the entire day and there are plenty keeping their eyes firmly fixed on this one as the smaller field doesn’t negate the prospect of a very exciting renewal of this prestigious National Hunt contest. Many expect this year to be a real renaissance for the staying chaser division and we could see a big bonus paid out if somebody can capture all of the big jewels over 3m and proper fences. 

If it’s going to happen anywhere it’s certainly going to start here and we’ve got Silviniaco Conti already odds-on for the victory against this slightly smaller field of about seven runners. 

You’ll find him trading at about 10/11 with most major bookmakers and he enters the race off a second place finish in a race that many assume he was never really in the mix to win anyway. In an ungraded Class 2 handicap hurdle at Kempton, the nine-year-old son of Dom Alco finished behind Brother Tedd but you get the feeling that the punters were onto this matter and assumed he was being sent out for a bit of exercise but was never actually trying to win the race hence the listing of 7/2 in a field of five - not what you normally expect for a multiple Grade 1 winning chaser. 

He has won the race twice before, including last year, when he triumphed over Menorah in another race that attracted a few more runners than what we are seeing around here. As usual, he will be expected to go for the King George afterwards and last year he was able to complete the unique double, but ultimately failed in the big one at Cheltenham when he was a well-beaten seventh place - far behind the likes of 3/1 favourite Coneygree.
