Horse Racing Odds: Ptit Zig Expected to Dominate Ascot ChasePublished February 14, 2015 by Amir G
Ptit Zig is the undisputed favorite for today's Betfair Ascot Chase (15:50 UK time).
The racecourse at Ascot is the place to be and see today as the annual Betfair Ascot Chase shoots off at 15:50 UK time. This Grade 2 National Hunt chase is run over 2 miles and 5 furlongs with 17 fences to be jumped. Seven horses are slated to run for the chase which is worth £150,000 in total for prizes.
Ptit Zig Undisputed Favorite
Ptit Zig is the undisputed favorite to win today's race. This Paul Nicholls trained six year old is leading an unbeaten record this season, having finished first in his last four races. In lifetime records, Ptit Zig has finished six times in the first position and two times in the second. Bookies are giving high regard for this horse, including bet365 Sports which offered 7/4 on Ptit Zig in antepost odds.
Balder Success and Odds
The seven year old Alan King-trained horse Balder Success is the next strongest favorite to win today. The horse received 5/2 at bet365 Sports and shares similar numbers at other bookies. Balder Success finished first in January's William Hill Chase at Kempton Park, and is generally boasting a very strong record in lifetime jumps, having finished ten times in the first position.
Following Balder Success is the eight year old Champagne Fever, trained by Willie Mullins. While the horse had a bit of a rough patch lately, Mullins and jockey Ruby Walsh will do their best to make a sweet comeback at the prestigious Ascot Chase. Champagne Fever was matched at 9/2 with Ma Filleule, followed by Ballycasey (9/1), Rajdhani Express (14/1) and Theatre Guide (25/1).
