The Argento Chase, also known as the Cotswold Chase, is set to take place this Saturday on the New Course at Cheltenham. The horses will be attempting to qualify for the Cheltenham Gold Cup, which will be taking place at the same venue in a couple months time.
Online sportsbook Bet365.com has the following odds for the horses who will be competing in the race:
- Bobs Worth -110
- Tidal Bay +300
- Grands Crus +700
- Imperial Commander +700
- Hunt Ball +1200
- Weird Al +1200
- Midnight Chase +1600
- Cape Tribulation +2000
- Quartz De Thaix +2000
- Wayward Prince +2000
- Little Josh +3300
- Calgary Bay +5000
- Cappa Bleu +5000
- Hey Big Spender +5000
As you can see Bobs Worth is a big favorite to win the race, but in National Hunt chase races anything can happen. That said Bobs Worth has won 8 of the 11 races he has participated in during his carrer and finished 2nd twice and 3rd once.
It’s also important to note that the odds shown can be made into each-way bets at 1/5 1-2-3. If you do choose to include an each-way bet then half of your wager would go towards the horse showing (1st, 2nd or 3rd) at odds 1/5 of what they are shown as above.
The race is also on the bubble as to whether it will be taking place at all due to the weather. The racecourse needs to thaw out before Saturday for this race to take place.
