FAV in Arkle Chase Racing Odds

EDWARDSTONE is the current 11/4 favourite in Arkle Chase odds 2022* (odds recorded at 17:54 GMT on March 14th, 2022 at Boylesports).

It has been red-hot form produced by Alan King’s Edwardstone having completed a four-timer on his latest run.

With form behind him, he should be a big player in the Arkle.

There was a Grade 1 success for him at Sandown in December and he has since added a couple of Grade 2 victories on top.

Edwardstone sets the standard in this contest.

He will need to be at his best because this is a high-quality renewal of the Arkle Chase.



Arkle Chase Betting Contenders

RIVIERE D’ETEL poses a big threat in the field despite not having won the last twice.

Those were both Grade 1 efforts at Leopardstown.

He was beaten by Blue Lord in the latest, but a mistake at the last was the only thing that scuppered his chance because the win for Riviere D’etel was fully on.

Reverie D’etel is a quote of 4/1 in Arkle Chase odds 2022* (odds recorded at 17:54 GMT on March 14th, 2022 at Boylesports).

9/2 shot BLUE LORD has opened his chasing account with three wins from three this season* (odds recorded at 17:54 GMT on March 14th, 2022 at Boylesports).

He looks competitive on form and beat Riviere D’etel on his latest by half a length.

He does look as if he needs a little more, but trainer Willie Mullins will no doubt have him finely tuned for this one.

HAUT EN COULEURS looks like a superb prospect who could have a say in this.

There was a debut chase win for him at Leopardstown win in December. He was back for a follow up at the same venue a month ago but fell.

Still, Haut En Couleurs could easily get himself involved.

Others to note for Arkle Chase betting

COEUR SUBLIME can’t be dismissed from this one as he won his last effort. That was on a return to the maiden company at Gowran on his latest run.

On his chasing debut, Coeur Sublime was only beaten by Ferny Hollow, who if an injury hadn’t stopped him from taking part, would have been one of the leading contenders for the Arkle 2022.

With Coeur Sublime having some experience at Grade 1 behind him (third) he warrants respect.

Coeur Sublime piques interest at 14/1 each way in Arkle Chase betting* (odds recorded at 17:54 GMT on March 14th, 2022 at Boylesports).

SAINT SAM opened his chasing account with a victory, that run happening at Fairyhouse.

He was then sent to a Leopardstown Grade 1 where he was third behind Blue Lord and Riviere D’etel and wasn’t disgraced at all.

Trainer Henry de Bromhead won the 2020 Arkle with mare Put The Kettle On and he has another good mare lining up in this one.

That is MAGIC DZAE who was third in a Grade 2 at Cork on her latest.

Better jumping is required here, but she is perhaps not without a chance at the places.

Arkle Chase Trends

Our betting experts scan through some of the key trends to pull together selections for Arkle Chase tips 2022.

This is a fixture where race favourites have had a pretty good time of things as of late. That includes last year’s heavy odds-on favourite Shishkin.

Arkle Chase Tips & Predictions Cheltenham Festival 2022

So we narrow it all down to our Arkle Chase tips 2022.

The first selection for the shortlist is an obvious selection of EDWARDSTONE at 11/4* (odds recorded at 17:54 GMT on March 14th, 2022 at Boylesports).

He does look something special and he destroyed some very good opponents in the Kingmaker.

But our main Arkle Chase tips for 2022 is going to be the 4/1 RIVIERE D’ETEL who looks to be making rapid progress towards being something special too.

A clean run around the Old Course and the Irish challenger is going to be right there.

Our final shortlist slot goes to HAUT EN COULEURS who was a faller on his latest.

But that can be pushed aside as a 7/1 contender* (odds recorded at 17:54 GMT on March 14th, 2022 at Boylesports).

Haut En Couleurs looks like a high-class prospect and can make his presence felt in this contest as he falls under some trends.
