RSA Steeple Chase Betting Odds
The RSA Steeple Chase – 14:10PM
The RSA Chase is known to be a gruelling test for a novice chaser. Racing over the extended three mile course, jumping accuracy is a must to conserve energy and the winner and those involved at the finish nearly always develop into top class horses.
In 2017, the amazingly talented but often recalcitrant and quirky Might Bite managed to pull it out of the fire from Whisper, after handing the runner-up a lifeline when he jinked violently right halfway up the climb for the line.
Nicky Henderson’s charge has since gone on to land the King George VI Chase on Boxing Day and is now the favourite to bet on the 2018 Cheltenham Gold Cup. So the RSA Chase is an important stepping stone for Gold Cup types and already, one or two names are being spoken of as potential contenders for the Blue Riband event.

A new favourite has emerged for the RSA Chase, since Presenting Percy won the Galmoy Hurdle impressively last time out, a perfect stepping stone to both a return to fences and to the Cheltenham Festival, the scene of his Pertemps Hurdle victory last year.
He has a brilliant rapport with jockey Davy Russell and he looks every inch a worthy RSA Chase Cheltenham betting odds favourite. He’ll prefer the Spring ground but even in the depths of winter, he has put together a string of highly promising efforts and connections can head into March dreaming of big things.
Monalee and Fountain’s Windfall are the obvious dangers to the race favourite.
