Champion Chase Betting Odds 2023

Billed as a clash between Energumene and Edwardstone, both were beaten in the Clarence House when warming up for this contest.

That hasn’t stopped them from dominating the market though, and it’s anyone’s guess which one of these two go off as favourite for the contest, the only thing we can say, is it will be one of them.

What Happened in 2022?

The 2022 renewal of this race was all about the matchup between Shishkin and Energumene, but sadly the first named of those struggled in the early part of the race, and was pulled up with what turned out to be an injury.

That left Energumene and he certainly delivered in style, coming away from the field to record a winning distance of eight and a half lengths. We missed out on the chance to see a great duel, but were certainly wowed by Energumene.
