All Mankind the 9/4 favourite for Henry VIII Novices’ Chase

ALL MANKIND is the current 9/4 market leader for this exciting Grade 1 trip on Saturday* (betting odds correct as of 16:28 GMT on Friday, December 24th from Betway).

He was the one to beat in the juvenile sphere last season over the hurdles and he has stepped up to chasing already with great aplomb.

On his chase debut at Warwick in his last run, he cruised to a victory on the 2m trip by a cool 13 lengths.

He is just impressive all the way now and with the runner in that race having gone on to score since Allmankind could be the one to beat.



Ga Law can throw down a challenge

There has also been some impressive stuff from GA LAW this season.

It has been three wins from three from the French recruit and he is still on a big upward curve of progress as well.

Each of those three wins were over the fences this season.

The lastest of those victories, securing a hattrick, was in a Wincanton Grade 2 fixture last month.

He took out Hurricane Harvey by 22 lengths in that fixture.

Ga Law demands a lot of respect coming into this one and is easily a name for the shortlist.

Ga Law may be a little underestimated out at 6/1* (betting odds correct as of 16:28 GMT on Friday, December 24th from Betfair).

Hitman to bring the heat

Paul Nicholls’ HITMAN should be well in this fixture.

He is stacked with great potential and we saw some of that as he stepped out at Ffos Las last month for his reappearance run.

That was just last month on his chase debut for his new yard.

Hitman duly delivered the win in commanding fashion, scoring by a wide margin of 30 lengths.

That was also his first run since winning surgery as well.

As it was for Ga Law, facile wins will perhaps leave question marks over the chance of scoring the win here from 11/4* (betting odds correct as of 16:28 GMT on Friday, December 24th from Betway).

Eldorado Allen is the one to watch

Another bringing some top form to the table is ELDORADO ALLEN who scored on his chasing debut on his reappearance.

That was at Newton Abbot in October and he adjusted easily to the switch. He followed that up with a win at Cheltenham then.

He was a little fortunate in getting that Grade 2 chase in that no-one stepped up in the final couple of furlongs to challenge him as he was fading.

But regardless, the win does put him on the radar for this one as he looks for further progress in the sphere.

Eldorado Allen is at 3/1* (betting odds correct as of 16:28 GMT on Friday, December 24th from Betway).

Phoenix Way faces a tougher assignment

The numbers are looking good for PHOENIX WAY as he picked up a win on his reappearance.

It has been two wins in four states of the hurdles. He stepped into the chasing sphere last time out when he scored a win at Warwick in a novice event.

That was his reappearance run and it was only a three-runner field a couple of weeks ago.

Pheonix Way has plenty to offer, but this is a much tougher assignment that he will be taking on for trainer Harry Fry.

It’s likely going to be too much for him. That’s reflected in the 12/1 outright odds* (betting odds correct as of 16:28 GMT on Friday, December 24th from Betway).

Tamaroc Du Mathan not to be discounted

TAMAROC DU MATHAN will be back for his second run of the new season.

On his reappearance he collected a trong win on his chase debut at Wincanton. He was flying over the fences, taking them on boldly.

That was a nice touch from him and looks as if he is built for bigger things in this sphere.

He has lost jockey Harry Cobden to Hitman which perhaps says something about Tamroc Du Mathan’s overall chances.

But we think that he should be considered for some place claims.

Predictions & Tips for Henry VIII Novices’ Chase Racing Odds

We taking a good long look at GA LAW for this contest at 6/1 as we think he brings a decent challenge to the table* (betting odds correct as of 16:28 GMT on Friday, December 24th from Betway).

It has been three very positive runs from him this season, capping it all off with an excellent Grade 2 win at Wincanton last time out.

There is a lot to like as well about ALLMANKIND at the head of the* (betting odds correct as of 16:28 GMT on Friday, December 24th from Betway).

He simply coasted to a win on his chase debut at Warwick last time out, hinting at a lot more to come.

The other that we think will make his presence felt the most is ELDORADO ALLEN who could improve further from his Cheltenham score on his last effort.

This is a very strong field with all runners having at least fair claims.
