Arkle Trophy Additional Each Way Places

The Sporting Life Arkle Trophy Chase is always a highlight of Champions Day at the Cheltenham Festival.

Featuring the very best in Novice Chaser talent, this Grade 1 championship race is run over Cheltenham’s Old Course over the minimum distance of 2 miles.

Despite relatively small fields, a number of online bookmakers are always looking to give their customers value, so an additional each way spot is certainly not out of the question in 2024. So 3 places each way at the 2024 Sporting Life Arkle Chase is a distinct possibility as bookmakers look to offer maximum profit opportunity for their customers. It’s certainly a promotion which will drive 2024 Cheltenham Festival new customer numbers for savvy bookmakers.

2024 Arkle Trophy 3 Places Each Way

The Sporting Life Arkle Trophy Chase has seen plenty of quality winners over the years. A natural stepping-stone for the very best 2 mile chaser talent, the Arkle has produced a number of winners who have gone on to win the Queen Mother Champion Chase. Henry de Bromhead jumped into prominence as a trainer when Sizing Europe won this in 2010 and went on to win the Queen Mother in 2011. The great Sprinter Sacre won this in 2012, going on to win the Queen Mother in 2013 and after a 3 year gap, again in 2016. And 2021 saw Nicky Henderson trained Shiskin bolt-up to launch his superstar career.

With anything up to 13 runners across recent races, online bookmakers pay out the standard 3 places each way at either 1/4 odds or more often 1/5 odds for this level-weight race. However the Sporting Life Arkle Trophy Chase is so popular with punters desperate for a serious bet that a bookmaker may well introduce an additional place, with 3 places more than likely for the 2024 Sporting Life Arkle Chase. Naturally 3 places covers circa 30% of the field – a situation which can only drive the chances of profit.

At the time of writing, no bookmakers have extended beyond the standard 3 places each way terms. As soon as this changes we’ll confirm details here.

Arkle Trophy Each Way Places Tracker

We track the value dished out by online bookmakers across the major National Hunt races. Extended each way terms gives punters a huge boost in terms of profit potential and is the perfect promotion for those who love to back big priced long shots. With some High Street bookmakers still categorically giving their customers the standard each way terms, savvy online punters have been using online bookmakers who have been offering far better value to their customers now for years.

The 2024 renewal of the Arkle Trophy Chase could be the first year that sees online bookmakers offering extended each way places for the first time.
