Chantry House heads the antepost betting for Saturday’s Paddy Power Cotswold Chase at Cheltenham after the entries were revealed.
Nicky Henderson’s Cheltenham Gold Cup prospect is looking to get back in the winner’s enclosure after finding the pace of the King George VI Chase too hot to handle on Boxing Day.
WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!
Victory could put Chantry House back among the market principals for the Gold Cup, but while this race serves as a trial for the Gold Cup, the last horse to win both races in the same season was Looks Like Trouble all the way back in 2000.
Santini nearly did the double two years ago but went down by a neck to Al Boum Photo in the Gold Cup. The 10-year-old is back for another crack at the Paddy Power Cotswold Chase after finishing fourth on debut for his new stable in last month’s Betfair Handicap Chase at Cheltenham.
Ahoy Senor has impressed in his first season over fences, with his crushing victory in the John Francome Novices’ Chase being the standout performance. Lucinda Russell’s charge holds entries to the Brown Advisory Novices’ Chase and Gold Cup at the Cheltenham Festival so his performance in this could dictate which renewal he contests.
Aye Right delivered a career-best performance to win the Betfair Exchange Rehearsal Handicap Chase at Newcastle in November. The son of Yeats has performed admirably at previous Cheltenham Festivals, placing fifth in the 2020 RSA Novices’ Chase behind the likes of Champ, Minella Indo, Allaho and Battleoverdoyen before finishing third in last year’s Ultima Handicap Chase.
Simply The Betts is back for another try at Grade 2 level after pulling up in last month’s Many Clouds Chase at Aintree. The nine-year-old seems to be enjoy the New Course at Cheltenham, however, after placing second in the Paddy Power New Year’s Day Handicap Chase.
Coole Cody has cracking form at Cheltenham but has plenty to find on ratings as he moves out of handicap company, while Ex Patriot and Kauto Riko are the outsiders in our early betting.
