There is a very strong lineup for the Betfair-sponsored first leg of British racing's Triple Crown series...

"The entries look really strong with Native River and Might Bite renewing rivalry. Add last year's winner, Bristol de Mai, Clan des Obeaux, and the four Irish entries headed by the JLT winner Shattered Love and it all adds up to a vintage renewal for the 14th running of the famous race."

Betfair spokesman Barry Orr

The 2018 Betfair Chase could be a classic for the ages if the current entries stand their ground for the race on November 24.

Cheltenham Gold Cup winner and runner-up, Native River and Might Bite, remain in the field as does last year's winner Bristol de Mai.

In behind that trio are Paul Nicholls' exciting chaser Politologue, Gordon Elliott's massively talented mare Shattered Love, another Nicholls' horse in Clan des Obeaux and Thistlecrack.

Betfair spokesman Barry Orr commented today: "The entries look really strong with Native River and Might Bite renewing rivalry.

"Add last year's winner, Bristol de Mai, Clan des Obeaux, and the four Irish entries headed by the JLT winner Shattered Love and it all adds up to a vintage renewal for the 14th running of the famous race.

"Last year's winner, Bristol de Mai, currently heads the betting at 9/4 just ahead of old foes, Might Bite and Native River, who are both 5/2.

"In terms of the Triple Crown, at 20/1, we rate Might Bite as the most likely to emulate Kauto Star and win a £1m bonus with Native River a 33/1 chance."
