BoyleSports Grand Sefton Betting Favourites

Gesskille – BoyleSports Grand Sefton Favourite

The favourite for the 2023 BoyleSports Grand Sefton Handicap Chase is Gesskille at odds of 10/3. Those odds imply that Gesskille has a 23.1% chance of winning the 2023 edition of the BoyleSports Grand Sefton at Aintree.

Gesskille is a 7-year-old gelding who is the son of Network and Nashkille and trained by Oliver Greenall & Josh Guerriero.

The 7-year-old boasts an impressive career record with 7 victories, 6 second-place finishes and 3 third-place finishes from 23 runs.

Gesskille returned to the track in September following a 101-day break at Auteuil, France. In that outing, he topped the nine-horse field by a short head from Echo De Champdoux to recover from a tough period on the track following six races without success. He now looks back to his best and is expected to be a major contender in this race.

Gesskille is looking to go one better than his runner-up finish last year and is currently a 3/1 chance to do just that in this race.

Former Grand National winning jockey and BoyleSports Horse Racing Ambassador Robbie Power is bullish on Gesskille’s chances heading into this race:

“Gesskille was just beaten last year and has a big, big chance and we know how much Venetia Williams horses love heavy ground, so if it does get the go-ahead Frero Banbou would have a massive chance.”

Fantastic Lady

Fantastic Lady is the 11/2 second favourite to win the 2023 BoyleSports Grand Sefton Handicap Chase. Those odds suggest that Fantastic Lady has a 15.4% chance of winning the big race this Saturday at Aintree.

This horse is trained by Nicky Henderson and is the daughter of Network (like Gesskille) and Latitude.

The 8-year-old holds a career record of 4 victories, 1 second-place finish and 2 thirds from 13 runs heading into this race.

Her last showing on track was at Sandown back on the 29th of April where she finished third in a six-horse field, coming 7.75 lengths back of winner Hewick. In fact, the horse hasn’t won since the 10th of November 2022 at Market Rasen.

Born By The Sea

Born By The Sea is one of three co-third favourites to win the 2023 BoyleSports Grand Sefton at odds of 7/1. Those odds imply that Born By The Sea has a 12.5% chance of passing the finish line first in this race.

The 9-year-old son of Born To Sea and Avida Star is trained by Paul John Gilligan. This bay gelding has a staggering fifty-two outings on track with a record of 3 wins, 7 seconds and 7 third-place finishes.

Born By The Sea most recently ran in Galway at the beginning of October where he came a disappointing 5th in a five-horse-field, 21 lengths behind winner Pats Choice.

The horse’s last victory came back in July 2021 when he beat eighteen other horses in the Guinness Galway Blazers Handicap Chase by 3.25 lengths.

Cooper’s Cross

Further out in the betting is Cooper’s Cross who is a 15/2 shot to win the 2023 BoyleSports Grand Sefton Handicap Chase. Those odds suggest that Cooper’s Cross has an 11.8% chance of success in Saturday’s big race at Aintree.

The eight-year-old son of Getaway and Rocella is trained by Stuart Coltherd. He boasts a career record of 3 victories, 5 second finishes and 2 third places from 16 outings.

Cooper’s Cross will be returning from a break after most recently running at Ayr back in April. On that occasion, despite being a 25/1 chance, he came second out of 18 horses and three lengths behind winner Kitty’s Light.

The horse’s last success came in Doncaster back in January in a Handicap Chase where he went off at odds of 16/1.
