13:50 The Peterborough Chase Odds & Tips: Unibet offer – Friday 11th December 2020

The Peterborough Chase gets the go-ahead at Cheltenham on Friday

Horse Racing Betting

The Peterborough Chase has been saved from the waterlogged Huntingdon track as it moves to Cheltenham on Friday.

The Peterborough Chase is the big race of the calendar year at Huntingdon so that was a huge loss for the Cambridgeshire venue.

The race was supposed to have happened last weekend.

But the BHA has superbly saved the race and now it is all eyes on Cheltenham on Friday as the feature fixture happens.

Despite speculations, Nicky Henderson is not sending Altior to the race, instead, he won’t be seen until Kempton on December 27th for the Desert Orchid Chase.

The Peterborough Chase stays at the 2m 4f distance despite the change of track. This is a Grade 2 contest open to 4-year-olds and above.

There are 8 declared runners for the contest and last year’s winner Top Notch is back for more.

The Peterborough Chase Odds

Top Notch 9/2
Kalashnikov 4/1
Mister Fisher 9/2
Fanion D’estruval 9/2
Clondaw Castle 11/2
Dolos 13/2
Glen Forsa 16/1
Bun Doran 20/1

Top Notch the 9/2 FAV for The Peterborough Chase

Heading up the market for this year’s renewal of The Peterborough Chase is TOP NOTCH at 9/2* (betting odds recorded at 18:43 GMT from Unibet on 12/10/20).

He collected the win in last year’s fixture, the second time that has won the race.

This will be his reappearance run for the season and has come back in top form fresh before.

Trainer Nicky Henderson will likely have him raring to go for this familiar fixture.

This will be the first run for Top Notch since a third at Kempton in January where he finished in third place behind Frodon.

That was Top Notch not anywhere near his best in that effort at all. But he had won his two previous races that season.

So it’s hard to knock him and with the track record he has in this particular race, he should be a strong player.

The 9-year-old is such a wonderfully consistent performer and the conditions here at Cheltenham will play to his strengths.



Can Mister Fisher recover from disappointing Paddy Power Gold Cup?

MISTER FISHER, a stablemate to Top Notch will be looking for a bounce-back performance.

That is because he pulled up in the Paddy Power Gold Cup last month.

If the ground gets too soft at Cheltenham then that could push him further from the big response that he is looking for.

But was in great shape last season, taking a fourth-place finish at the Cheltenham Festival in the Golden Miller.

He is perhaps a little longer in the market for The Peterborough Chase betting at 9/2 than he would have been if he’d arrived after a good run* (betting odds recorded at 18:43 GMT from Unibet on 12/10/20).

Kalashnikov the one to watch?

The form of KALASHNIKOV trailed away last season, failing to get anything going on his final two runs of last season.

He has had a reappearance run for this campaign, getting a run over the hurdles at Haydock on a 3m trip last month.

He was third in that Grade 3 hurdle in the Group 3 Betfair Exchange Stayers Handicap Hurdle.

Kalashnikov is being well supported in this market on his second go after wind surgery.

But we fell that he only gets this if he is in his very smartest form, which is no guarantee but he’s up there as a 4/1 contender* (betting odds recorded at 18:43 GMT from Unibet on 12/10/20).

Fanion D’estruval a key contender

The extra tip for FANION D’ESTRUVAL is likely going to play to his strengths.

We think the has a lot to offer a 9/2 contender* (betting odds recorded at 18:43 GMT from Unibet on 12/10/20).

Granted this is a much tougher challenge for him, especially if rivals are on form.

But Fanion D’estruval opened the season very well to get a runner up in a strong handicap.

We like that it was here at Cheltenham as well and the 5-year-old has plenty to build on from last season when he didn’t really look back since making his British debut.

Does Dolos have enough to cause a surprise?

There was a decent reappearance run from DOLOS when he took a fourth-place finish in October here.

That was on a 2m trip and that is likely going to have opened some more potentially up from him.

Dolos is a classy performer and this will be his second run since wind surgery.

He has won four chases before from 1m 7f to 2m 3f on the varying ground. So he knows what this is all about.

Dolos does actually look like one of the big threats in the field because he is more than capable of putting things together.

If he is in a bold mood then at 7/1, he’s not to be discounted* (betting odds recorded at 18:43 GMT from Unibet on 12/10/20).

The Rest Of The Runners

BUN DORAN opened the season with a seventh-place finish at Exeter last month.

He may well have just needed to get some air in his lungs from that Grade 2 effort.

Notably, Bun Doran has been in the frame in his last five runs at Cheltenham, scoring once in that run.

CLONDAW CASTLE has already shown plenty of form this season.

He closed out last season with a bang and he has been right back on top of form this season.

Clondaw Castle opened with a second-place finish in the Old Roan in October. He was last seen at Newbury a couple of weeks ago. Clondaw Castle could get in the frame.

GLEN FORSA only had one run last season and in that he produced a very good third-place finish.

He made his appearance this season at Exeter which ended in disappointment as he fell a couple from home. It looks as if he has a lot to find.

Predictions & Tips for The Peterborough Chase Racing Odds

What a great fixture we have here, regardless of the venue switch. We have to look at TOP NOTCH straight away.

He is the one with all of the form in this race having won it in 2017 and 2019.

There are no issues about him coming back fresh and after wind surgery, so Top Notch could be the one to beat at 9/2* (betting odds recorded at 18:43 GMT from Unibet on 12/10/20).

FANION D’ESTRUVAL is going to be another of our selections here at 4/1* (betting odds recorded at 18:43 GMT from Unibet on 12/10/20). We think that he has a lot to offer in better company here and looks primed for a bold run.

The other pick for the shorts is the class DOLOS who probably is not too far away from another bold run.

His sharp reappearance over 2m in October should see him come in fit for this one.
