Arkle Chase Betting Tips, Preview & Prediction

Irish horses have won four of the past five Arkles, and raiders filled the top three places 12 months ago. I haven’t been impressed with any of the British novices’ over two miles this term, so I’m expecting more Irish dominance in this year’s Arkle.

Notebook ran a cracker to see off FAKIR D’OUDAIRIES over Christmas, and battled bravely to deny Cash Back when they clashed at the Dublin Racing Festival. Henry De Bromhead’s chaser is a magnificent jumper and a worthy favourite, but I’m not sure there’s much more improvement left in the tank.

The same cannot be said for Fakir D’Oudairies, who jumped like a stag on both of his opening starts over fences. Joseph O’Brien’s Drinmore winner then found himself too far adrift of a slow pace as Notebook set off for home, and a couple of errors down the home straight put paid to his chances.

I’m expecting Mark Walsh to take a more prominent early position at Cheltenham - a track Fakir D’Oudairies has won around in the past - and soft ground should ensure he turns the tables on the market leader, which is why he gets the nod in my Arkle Chase 2020 tips.
