RSA Chase Betting Preview & Tips
Day 2 – Wednesday 11th March 2020 – 2.10pm – RSA Chase – Grade 1 – 3m110y
The RSA Chase is a very competitive contest and is usually a source for chasing superstars. The likes of Presenting Percy, Might Bite, Denman and other legendary horses have won this race in recent year, and the hope is we will have another staying gem flourishing from this year’s renewal.
The favourites are Champ and Minella Indo in what looks a very competitive RSA Chase renewal with a 10-runner field. Champ has won two Grade 1 contest over hurdles in the last season but was defeated by City Island in the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle on soft ground in the last Festival. Recently Champ has won a Grade 1 at Aintree (soft 3 miles) and his novice chase form to date has been over shorter distances. He should be completely fine with the trip of this race.
The second main favourite, Minella Indo, won two Grade 1 races over hurdles last spring. He also won the 3m Albert Bartlett on the good-to-soft ground last year at this meeting. Henry De Bromhead’s gelding has had only two starts over fences, so she is undoubtedly open to improvement.
Our Bet: Battleoverdoyen
Battleoverdoyen ruined his form when falling in a Grade 1 contest at Leopardstown early in February. Even if defeated, Gordon Elliot’s trained showed some great potential before landing a 3 miles Grade 1 company at Fairyhouse in December. In November he saw off subsequent Grade 3 winner Any Second Now by an impressive 5 lengths in a Grade 2 run at Punchestown (soft) over an extended 2 miles and 6 furlongs. This seven-year-old is top-class and with the trip and ground in his favour, can deliver in this competitive novice chase.
Our Verdict: Battleoverdoyen
