Arkle Chase 2021 Betting Tip

Big late news right on the eve of the festival with Energumene being withdrawn from this race due to injury.

That will put Shishkin as a long odds on favourite for the race, and will be seen as a banker by many.

However, one of the more intriguing options is certainly Allmankind and he looks the value here. There was a question over Energumene and Allmankind regarding who would lead and take this field on, and would they harm each others chances.

Now Energumene is out, Allmankind should get an easy lead, and will give Shiskin the biggest jumping test of his career so far.

These are novice horses and in terms of value, Allmankind is the bet here for us, he will give Shishkin plenty to think about and is overpriced.

Allmankind - 4/1

Arkle Chase Betting Update – March 2021

Shishkin is as short as 1/2 now that Energumene has been withdrawn from the race, and will be one of the horses that some people mark as being a banker of the meeting.

Allmankind is 4/1 in behind him, and gets the allowance for being a younger horse, while also has an easier task of leading the race now that Energumene is gone.

Behind these two, Captain Guinness and Franco De Port, both at 8/1 are the only two horses who are priced up at 20/1 or less alongside the main two.
