The £200,000 G1 Betfair Chase, which closed at noon today, has attracted 11 initial entries, with Betfair betting 5/4 Sizing John, 2/1 Bristol De Mai, 6/1 Cue Card, 10/1 Outlander, 10/1 Might Bite, 12/1 Tea For Two, 20/1 More Of That, 25/1 Traffic Fluide, 25/1 Yala Enki, 33/1 Double Treasure and 50/1 Shantou Flyer.
Sizing John, last season's Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup winner, is due to make his seasonal debut in the Betfair Chase, run at Haydock Park on Saturday, November 25, with the race being the first leg of The Jockey Club's £1-million Chase Triple Crown bonus.
Betfair spokesman Barry Orr commented today: "Following his battling win in the Charlie Hall Chase, Bristol De Mai has been all the rage for the Betfair Chase and, with two wins from two runs at Haydock, the betting momentum seems to be with him. He is now 2/1 from 5/1.
"Having said that, the Cheltenham Gold Cup winner, Sizing John, still heads the market at 5/4, while Cue Card, who would emulate the great Kauto Star with four wins should he land the prize, has been attracting recent support and is 6/1 from 7/1."
