The 2013 Jewson Chase kicks off proceedings on Thursday and the presence of Dynaste (13/8, Paddy Power) has changed the whole complexion of the contest.

David Pipe’s market leader has been sent here rather than the RSA Chase on Wednesday and it isn’t hard to see why the bookmakers have him in at such a short price.  This trip looks perfect for the grey and the Feltham hero will appreciate the ‘easier’ task in a Grade Two.  However, the Grade One winner looks short in the betting and it’s not certain that he has as much in hand as his rating might suggest.

At the prices, it looks like CAPTAIN CONAN (13/2, William Hill) could be the one to be on and he has drifted to a very attractive price in recent days.  The gelding will be looking for his fifth success in eight starts in Britain and Ireland and with three Grade Ones already to his name, he can add this race to his CV.

Though he wasn’t too impressive in the Scilly Isles Chase in February, trainer Nicky Henderson wasn’t convinced he was at his best that day and the handler thinks we could see the former hurdler in better form at Cheltenham.  His jumping is assured and he looks an efficient operator who will appreciate the test at Cheltenham.

Willie Mullins’ Aupcharlie (6/1, William Hill) commands considerable respect dropping in trip, while the RSA Chase on Wednesday gave a huge form boost to Texas Jack (12/1, Ladbrokes).
