It is the Betfair Chase on the weekend with a National Hunt nod towards the King George and the Cheltenham Gold Cup. What a top listing it is as well for the race at Haydock which is the start of the Chase Triple Crown. There’s a million-pound bonus to pick up for landing the holy grail of chase racing.
There will be the big duel between Silviniaco Conti and rival Cue Card with the two splitting the last two renewals of the Betfair Chase. Silviniaco Conti has won the Chase Triple Crown opener twice before in his career and while he went on to complete the double last year, the Gold Cup remained out of his reach again.
Both Silviniaco Conti and Cue Card look to be on top of their form for the Haydock showdown on Saturday and particularly for the latter, it is a great opportunity to put a disappointing 2014/15 season behind him. He is the only one who can force Silviniaco Conti to have to pull out his best to win.
Silviniaco Conti is 10/11 favourite at Coral with Cue Card holding a firm second favourite place at 11/4.
