National Hunt Chase Challenge Cup Betting Odds
The J T McNamara National Hunt Steeple Chase Challenge Cup – 16:50PM
The JT McNamara NH Steeplechase is a 4 mile Grade 2 contest for Novice Chasers and Amateur Jockeys has developed into a real sounding board for future top staying prospects.
In 2017, trainer Gordon Elliott’s diminutive but very talented Tiger Roll stole the show under Lisa O’Neill with his display of running and jumping, before storming up the hill to score at 16/1.
With around £120,000 in total prize-money, It is a real spectacle and the perfect race to start winding down the day one Champion Day betting card. This novice race is on the rise in terms of quality and the 2018 renewal is sure to be another excellent race.
Narrow 10/1 betting favourite Presenting Percy is a class act and looks RSA Chase bound.
Invitation Only and Any Second Now are improving and have a good chance, but Monalee could be the interesting one at 20/1. Highly regarded, his season hasn’t quite got going yet with one or two hold ups and mishaps, but this four mile test could be just what he needs and the seven-year-old novice chaser trained by Henry De Bromhead rates as the dark horse.
