Cross Country Chase 2021 Betting Tip

The Cross Country Chase usually has a clear favourite who is seen as a festival banker by some, and that is true again this year.

Easyland took the 2020 renewal in good style, beating Tiger Roll but was hugely disappointing on return to the track earlier this season. In the same race, Tiger Roll was pulled up, so it is fair to have question marks over both of these.

One horse that did impress that day, and also looked like improving again for a run at the course is Potters Corner, who is a great and seemingly rock solid each way alternative to the front two in the market.

He’s 8/1 and in a race lacking depth, he could turn out to be a banker place bet at the meeting.

Potters Corner (EW) - 8/1

Cross Country Chase Betting Update – March 2021

Easyland has shortened in the betting without doing anything of note over the past couple of months, and that has all been down to confidence in Tiger Roll disappearing.

The two-time Grand National winner has been very disappointing and is 6/1 to win this contest again, while Easyland is the 11/10 favourite to follow up his 2020 success.

Potters Corner, Shady Operator and Lord Du Mensil are the names further down the betting that people will be looking at for each way purposes.
