Betway Handicap Chase

The Betway Handicap Chase comes from Aintree on Saturday afternoon and should be another decent race. It held over three miles and one furlong and 18 runners will head to post for this Listed event.

The favourite is Emerging Force at 6/1 and this horse made a decent start over fences winning his first to races and then disappointed a little bit at Cheltenham in December.

He’s been off the track since then but Harry Whittington should have the horse spot on for this race and he skipped Cheltenham with Aintree in mind. He’s still very much unexposed and could be quite well handicapped, but I’m not sure he will jump well enough in such a competitive handicap.

Starchitect is at 13/2 and looked pretty unlucky when fifth in a handicap at Cheltenham last time.

He was staying on strongly and hit traffic problems, but should relish this step up in trip and could still be well handicapped over the larger obstacles.

He’s a 13/2 shot for David Pipe and Tom Scudamore and is a really consistent six-year-old.

Value At Risk hasn’t been seen since October, where he finally got his head in front over fences. He is clearly very talented but I’m not sure how much you can trust this eight-year-old.

Dan Skelton is very good at getting a horse ready after a break so is sure to have Value At Risk fully fit.

Henry Parry Morgan is at 11/1 and has been one of the most disappointing horses of the season for me. I fancied him for the Hennessey back in November and he’s just been really poor.

However, a mark of 138 is certainly workable and the horse is at 11/1 for Sean and Peter Bowen. He’s just another I can’t trust at the moment.

I Just Know is at 11/1 and has won his last two for Danny Cook and Sue Smith. He’s sure to go off in front and could be tough to peg back if getting into a good rhythm here.

It’s then 11/1 about Potters Legend and you can get 14/1 for Our Kaempfer, who needs to bounce back after being pulled-up at Cheltenham.

It’s then 16/1 and over about the rest of the field.

Joe’s tip(s) for this race: [mepr-show if=”rule: 75342″] Starchitect would be the main bet in this race.
