Arkle Novices’ Chase Betting Odds (January Update)

Jonbon leads the market for this contest, currently available at a general 11/8, while he’s got a host of talented runners in behind him, which would make for a great contest if they all turn up.

The likes of Appreciate It, El Fabiolo and Dysart Dynamo are all priced up at 6/1 or less, if all four turn up, we should have a great race and lively betting heat.

What Happened in 2022?

Edwardstone came out on top in the 2022 Arkle Novices’ Chase, with a fantastic round of jumping to win his fifth race in a row.

A winning distance of four and a half lengths was recorded, and while the race may not have been a vintage Arkle, Edwardstone could hardly have done any more.
