Betfair Ascot Chase Racing Odds & Tips: Betfair offer 10/11 on Cyrname – 20th February 2021

Master Tommytucker to upstage Cyrname in Saturday's big feature race

Horse Racing Betting

It’s all eyes on Ascot on Saturday without question as the brilliant CYRNAME looks to pick up the Betfair Ascot Chase.

He is the current odds-on favourite in racing betting to get the job done in this Grade 1 fixture.

The Betfair Ascot Chase is run over 2m 5f and there are 5 runners declared for this year’s renewal.

The 2020 winner of the Betfair Ascot Chase was RIDERS ONTHE STORM from a 7/2 SP (Sam Twiston-Davies / N A Twiston-Davies). He returns for a defence.

Cyrname the one to beat in Betfair Ascot Chase Racing Odds

CYRNAME is the current 10/11 odds-on market leader in Betfair Ascot Chase racing odds* (betting odds recorded at 20:00 GMT at Betfair on February 19th, 2021).

He opened the season with a victory in the Charlie Hall. From there he was sent to King George when he failed to complete.

That was an unexpected turn up for the books and now the Paul Nicholls-trained 9 year old gets the cheekpieces on for the first time.

Cyrname seems to thrive the most when he is here at Ascot and we would expect him come back with a better effort in pushing close to a victory in this one.

But 12 months ago he was in the Betfair Ascot Chase and churned out a poor performance.

On paper he looks like a rock-solid pick, but will he bring his best on the day?

Master Tommytucker


Master Tommytucker to upstage Cyrname?

The obvious way to go in Betfair Ascot Chase betting to oppose Cyrname would be MASTER TOMMYTUCKER at 3/1* (betting odds recorded at 20:00 GMT at Betfair on February 19th, 2021).

He is bringing some strong form to the table with him, having won three of his last four efforts.

The most recent of those was in a Kempton Grade 2 when he beat Clondaw Castle by 12 lengths.

Master Tommytucker likes to get to the front and take control of things.

He’s not the most reliable of jumpers, but he is just thriving at the moment despite that.

If he can put a clean jumping performance together then the Grade 1 success wouldn’t be a surprise.

Can Dashel Drasher score the big career win?

DASHEL DRASHAR piques some interest in Betfair Ascot Chase racing odds because he has won a couple of times at Ascot before.

He is stepping into action at 6/1 to pick up the victory on Saturday in this hot fixture* (betting odds recorded at 20:00 GMT at Betfair on February 19th, 2021).

Dashel Drasher is looking to secure a hat-trick as well after scoring over course and distance last month.

It was a very strong jumping performance that Dashel Drasher put in to hold off BENNYS KING.

It’s not likely that he is going to be far away and while he needs further progress, that’s not off the table.

Will Ascot Chase return perk up Riders Onthe Storm?

The winner of last year’s edition, RIDERS ONTHE STORM is back for another crack, but he is a 20/1 outsider* (betting odds recorded at 20:00 GMT at Betfair on February 19th, 2021).

It has been two runs from him this season, both ending in third-place finishes.

The most recent of those was behind Master Tommytucker at Kempton, a long way back as well he was.

Riders Onthe Storm was in brilliant shape last season when he won this race.

But he hasn’t been anywhere near that kind of form since then and it’s going to take a big improvement to get back.

Can Benny’s King shine on the first Grade 1 effort?

BENNY’S KING makes the jump up to Grade 1 for the first time here after giving Dashel Drasher a good stern test over course and distance four weeks ago.

He went well at Ascot and scored an Ascot victory on his penultimate race back in December in a handicap.

This is a big step forward in level for him, but there’s every chance that he will show why he belongs from 10/1* (betting odds recorded at 20:00 GMT at Betfair on February 19th, 2021).

Predictions & Tips for Betfair Ascot Chase Racing Odds

This is the big highlight of the weekend in racing. Can CYRNAME bring his A-game to the table and pick up the victory?

He likes Ascot but he wasn’t at his best in last year’s renewal of the fixture. He had another shocker at King George as well, which just raises a question.

Because of that, he is worth taking on and it’s MASTER TOMMYTUCKER who looks to be the way to go at a 3/1 quote* (betting odds recorded at 20:00 GMT at William Hill on February 19th, 2021).

He is the one with all of the form at the moment and despite being prone to producing a howler, he looks to be the pick of the bunch right now.

The other selection that intrigues us is DASHEL DRASHER because is unbeaten at Ascot and while this is a tougher task, he looks very progressive.
