Turners Novices’ Chase Betting Odds (March Update)
The betting market for this race is beginning to take shape, though there are still horses who have a couple of potential targets, either at a shorter or longer trip. Given the fact this is a middle distance, that is always the case with this race, but that should clear up as we get closer to the festival.
One horse who will head here is Mighty Potter, impressive over this trip at Leopardstown in early February, a run that has seen him cut to just 6/4 to win this.

What Happened in 2022?
Galopin Des Champs had the race at his mercy, but a dramatic fall at the final fence left Bob Olinger to take the race. It was supposed to be a huge clash between these two, but Bob Olinger was disappointing on the day, and Galopin Des Champs would have won by a distance if standing up at the last but sadly he was not able to.
