Dan Moore Memorial Handicap Chase betting tips from Fairyhouse on Horsebetting.com say Cubomania is fancied most to win the 2m 1f Grade A feature on Saturday, 12 January. Duch De Thaix is one of five for powerful owners Gigginstown House Stud and looks the pick of their quintet, so rates the main danger. Kildorrey, meanwhile, is one to consider each-way in a wide-open renewal. Read our detailed Dan Moore Memorial Handicap Chase betting tips preview below for more on this ultra-competitive race.Cubomania considered Dan Moore Memorial value at FairyhouseCubomania has attracted plenty of market support for the Grade A 2m 1f Dan Moore Memorial Handicap Chase at Fairyhouse on Saturday (14:10), so is fancied to land the spoils. Trained by Gordon Elliott, the six-year-old is four from nine over fences after winning all five trips across the Irish Sea this season – including a spin on the Flat.
After progressing in novice and handicap chases at Perth and Kelso, connections stepped Cubomania into graded company and he was far from disgraced when a 7 1/2 lengths third to Cadmium. That one has swerved a rematch here as he’d have been worse off at the weights.
Cubomania followed-up on that by landing a class 2 novice chase at Cheltenham despite getting hampered four out. His stamina then seem stretched in the Grade 2 Florida Pearl at Punchestown tackling 2m 6f for the first time and he next fell at the second last when still in touch during the Grade 1 Drinmore over 2m 4f here in December.
Elliott went back to handicaps with Cubomania last time out and he stuck to the task well when a six-length runner-up to Tisamystery at Leopardstown off 137. As he was giving the winner a whopping 25lb, this was a very solid effort in the circumstances. He races off a mark of 2lb higher in this, which puts him with every chance of victory off a nice racing weight.
Robbie Power now takes the ride and is on a healthy 20 per cent strike rate in the last fortnight at the time of writing after landing a double at Clonmel in the week. As Cubomania looks value at the odds on offer, then he is put up as our main selection in these Dan Moore Memorial Handicap Chase betting tips.Duca De Thaix the pick of Gigginstown’s fiveLeading owners Gigginstown House Stud launch a five-pronged attack at this valuable prize in a typically competitive and wide-open renewal. The market speaks in favour of Duca De Thaix, who has been very consistent since sent chasing and – as the apparent first string in maroon and gold – is feared most.
Although beaten on chase debut by the re-opposing Kildorrey at Punchestown, the six-year-old son of Voix Du Nord was giving that one 7lb. While they meet on worse terms here, Duca De Thaix has arguably improved with each outing and won a valuable Grade B handicap over course and distance in very taking style last month.
After chasing the leaders in the hands of Davy Russell, he was third at halfway and improved into second two out. Duca De Thaix took it up after the penultimate fence when going best and was driven clear up the run-in for a comfortable five-length victory over Avrico Bleu.
The runner-up had previously chased home subsequent Grade 1 winners Hardline and Le Richebourg in beginners events, so the form looks strong. If nothing else, the handicapper was certainly impressed by Duca De Thaix and has raised him 10lb to a mark of 143.
Russell again takes the ride, so a bold bid looks assured. As other Gigginstown runners are all at double figure prices at the time of writing, it’s Duca De Thaix who can give Cubomania most to think about – according to these Dan Moore Memorial Handicap Chase betting tips.Kildorrey another with claimsKildorrey has the beating of Duca De Thaix on previous form and is 4lb better off with him here, so looks a solid each-way bet if replicating his 3 3/4 lengths chase debut victory. He won going away and looks to have plenty more to offer as a result.
Trained by Ted Walsh, the six-year-old son of Arakan was then a fine fourth in a Punchestown Grade 2 that may have been too much too soon. Kildorrey has had just three chase starts, so is still unexposed in this sphere and has been allotted an opening mark of 132 over fences after chasing home Judgement Day last time out.
Although all of his chase appearances to date have been at Punchestown, Fairyhouse races also go clockwise so he should have no problem handling the track. As he’s open to the most improvement over fences, Kildorrey has obvious credentials of landing a big pot like or at least going well and hitting the frame.
When considering Kildorrey in relation to some of the market principals, he should be respected off these terms and therefore is one to consider backing each-way here. He thus completes our Dan Moore Memorial Handicap Chase betting tips.Your Next Bet
