Cross Country Steeple Chase Betting Odds
The Glenfarclas Cross Country Steeple Chase – 16:10PM
The Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase is a unique event staged over three miles and seven furlongs, where horses and riders are tasked with negotiating a specialist course containing a variety of different banks and fences.
Last year, Gordon Elliott’s Cause Of Causes flew up the Cheltenham Hill under rider Jamie Codd to land another famous Cheltenham betting success for this horse.
He is right up there as favourite for the 2018 renewal of the quirky but popular contest, with several other Cross-Country specialists and hopefuls lining up for a tilt at the valuable prize money.

Josie’s Orders could be the biggest threat to Cause Of Causes retaining his crown, if he is fully wound up to peak on the day for trainer Enda Bolger. This horse jumps really well, stays all day and can produce a good turn of foot when producing his best form. At odds of 8/1, Josie’s Orders represents pretty good betting value.
Kim Bailey’s The Last Samuri wasn’t quite up to the Cotswold Chase level last time out, but he could really enjoy the slower pace of this race en route to another tilt at the 2018 Grand National in April, while Bless The Wings and Cantlow are unlikely to be too far away once again.
