1965 Chase Odds: Defi and Drasher among 11 entries for Ascot Grade 2

Defi Du Seuil and Lostintranslation could clash at Ascot on Saturday.
Defi Du Seuil and Lostintranslation could clash at Ascot on Saturday.

There's an enthralling National Hunt card set to light up at Ascot on Saturday afternoon, and one of the highlights of the day is the Grade 2 Chanelle Pharma 1965 Chase, which has attracted a stellar list of entries for what is a thrilling 2m 5f 8y contest...

Hugely progressive last season, Jeremy Scott's Dashel Drasher will attempt to kick off his new season on a winning note and he has been installed as the 100/30 favourite with bookmakers for the 1965 Chase. Three superb wins at Ascot last season saw him progress into one of the stars of the season, and his 2020/2021 campaign ended with a fine win in the Ascot Chase over course and distance, where he beat Master Tommytucker by two lengths.

Taking his chance over the same trip on Saturday, Dashel Drasher could arguably have a tougher task on his hands, as he faces some proven top notch chasers, who will be looking to start their seasons on a positive note.

Former JLT Novices' Chase winner Defi Du Seuil has had somewhat of an indifferent couple of seasons, but if he can replicate the form that saw him win a Grade 1 Clarence House Chase at Ascot then the current 4/1 available with the bookmakers could be huge, if he can excel over this 2m 5f. Colin Tizzard's Lostintranslation (9/2) lost his way last season when trying to land some notable events over three miles and beyond, and last seen pulling up in the Cheltenham Gold Cup he will need to be galvanised by a drop back in trip, but the yard in flying form at the moment, so he can't be discounted.

A race that can often throw up a classy winner that goes on to compete in the Ryanair Chase at the Cheltenham Festival, the 1965 Chase is always a mid-November highlight, and Paul Nicholls could saddle Master Tommytucker (6/1), who was last seen over hurdles, while Olly Murphy's Itchy Feet (6/1) was last seen running a big race behind Allmankind in the Old Roan Chase at Aintree, and he adds more depth to the race.

Kim Bailey's Espoir De Romay (7/1) failed to land a blow in the Colin Parker Memorial at Carlisle in his first start this season, but he will improve for that outing, and with a run under his belt that could add his chances, while Bennys King (8/1) and Cepage (10/1) are another prominent duo in the betting.

A fascinating entry is the dual Grand National winner Tiger Roll, who at the age of 11, is looking to defy his years by landing this event. However, he's a 33/1 outsider for the event, and it could be a surprise to see him make the trip over from Ireland for this event. Completing the 11-strong field, Franco De Port (12/) and Pistol Whipped (16/1) could well take their chance in a field dominated by top notch horses in what could be one of the early season highlights.
