Becher Chase 2022 Runners & Odds

National Horse

Run over the same fences as the National at Aintree Racecourse, this is a race that really excites National hunt fans. Often seen as a preview to the big race, this is where punters get to see some of the Grand National hopefuls in action.

For 2022 the race will take place on Saturday, December 3rd at 2.05pm and for those of you in the UK, you can watch it live on ITV4.

This year saw 43 entries but with a maximum of only 30 allowed to run in the Becher Chase 2022, we are yet to discover who will make the final declarations.

So who is in the running and will the race throw up any clues as to who could run a great Grand National in 2022?

Becher Chase 2022 Runners

The Becher Chase is a handicapped race. This means that the top horse is allocated a weight of 11-12. That is 2lbs higher than the maximum National weight but the Becher is nearly a mile shorter and is run over a distance of 3m2f.

For 2022, has yet to be determined as the weights have not been allocated – as of November 9th 2022.

This year the entries come from a large number of trainers, 34 in total. Willie Mullins is the only trainer to have five entries in Captain Kangaroo, Egality Mans, Franco De Port, Rambranlt’jac and Recite A Prayer.

A winner last time out Captain Kangaroo has the best form of the entries which is reflected in his short odds. Available at 8/1 antepost with Paddy Power, he is the third favourite in the Becher Chase 2022.

Becher Chase 2022 Odds

There are definitely some clear ante-post favourites on the betting markets. Snow Leopardess heads the contenders on antepost odds of 7/1 just ahead of Gesskille and Captain Kangaroo on 8/1.

Snow Leopardess won the Becher Chase last season and though she hasn’t run this season, that kind of form could easily carry into the 2022 race.

Hill Sixteen, last year’s second place finisher is also returning for another crack at the race. With one race already under his belt this season, he is a decent price at 14/1. At least an each-way consideration.

Lord Accord from Neil Mulholland is a decent price at 10/1. With three runs already in the bag this season, he notched up a win at Cheltenham in October before finishing second last time out at Wincanton.

Tips For The Race

Normally around 18 horses make it to the starting line so we still have a way to go to get our final line-up.

If you’re keen and want to get an early ante-post bet on then look for horses on good form and preferably those who run well on soft or heavy ground.

A bit of experience around Aintree also helps. Even if they have never won there if they have at least run over the National fences they stand a better chance of doing well.
