This Grade 3 Extended Handicap Chase isn’t just a race; it’s a crucible where equine prowess is forged into racing folklore. This year’s edition promises a heart-stopping spectacle, with a diverse field of contenders all vying for the ultimate glory.

A Thoroughbred Throng: Favourites and Dark Horses

Leading the charge is the current favourite, the 7-year-old gelding Nick Rockett. Trained by the maestro himself, W.P. Mullins, Nick Rockett’s recent victory has catapulted him into the spotlight. At 4/1 odds, his hooves thunder with the promise of a dominant performance.

However, the tenacious Intense Raffles (15/2 odds) isn’t backing down. Trained by Thomas Gibney, this grey gelding is a powerhouse of stamina and speed, boasting a track record that demands respect.

Yeah Man (12/1 odds), a bay gelding under the tutelage of Gavin¬† Cromwell, embodies the spirit of a champion. A string of victories precedes him, and his unwavering will to win is a force to be reckoned with. Don’t underestimate the consistent Desertmore House (25/2 odds) either, trained by M Brassil. This dark horse could be the surprise everyone’s talking about come race day.

Rising Stars and Seasoned Veterans

Watch out for Hartur Darc (13/1 odds), trained by Gavin Cromwell. This rising star has displayed flashes of brilliance, and a strong finish could rewrite the odds. Versatility defines Senior Chief (15/1 odds), trained by H De Bromhead. This seasoned veteran knows the taste of Grand National victory, and his experience is a force to be admired.

Any Second Now (31/2 odds), trained by T.M. Walsh, brings a wealth of Grand National experience to the table. This seasoned campaigner has the potential to upset the favourites. The spirited Good Time Jonny (17/1 odds), trained by A.J. Martin, is known for his electrifying runs and could be a lucrative pick for bettors. Wellhavewan (17/1 odds), another Mullins-trained bay gelding, boasts a winning pedigree and shouldn’t be forgotten.

Rounding out the field

Where It All Began and Favori De Champdou (both at 20/1 odds). These contenders have proven their mettle against the best, and with the right conditions, could emerge as surprise victors.
