Tingle Creek Tips and Betting Offers, 3pm at Sandown, Saturday 8th December 2018
Saturday’s Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown has a clear favourite, but will things go to plan? The 38th renewal of the race comes in the 3pm at Sandown this weekend, and we can see a shock on the cards here. Paul Nicholls, the trainer who has won this race a record 10 times, won’t have a horse in this race, so who will step up to sweep up the £84,000 first place prize in his place?

This race seems like a cut and dry affair according to the bookmakers. Altior is priced up at 8/11 with Coral to come away with the win, and that seems to be the consensus across the board. However, the favourite doesn’t have this one wrapped up quite yet, and we can certainly see a challenger emerging across the field at Sandown this weekend. While Nicky Henderson’s pick is in form, the quality of opposition ahead of this race is high.
That high quality opposition means that Un De Sceaux is in second place in the betting, but he can’t be ruled out. Willie Mullins has enjoyed success here as recently as 2016, when Un De Sceaux came out on top at this race. Will the 2018 renewal bring another victory for Mullins’ stable? Can the second favourite defy the odds and make for first place?
On recent form, we can’t see any reason to back against Un De Sceaux. He has back to back wins ahead of this one. Mullins brings the 2016 winners back into this race for the first time since he won it two years ago, and overall his form in chases looks solid. Despite all of that pointing to a challenge from Mullins; charge, you can still back him at 4/1 with Ladbrokes. We think that is a great value shout, and we’re happy to get the 10-year-old onside as the best pick from the four-strong field.
However, that’s not our only selection ahead of this race. There is other value to be found, especially if you are looking for a slightly bigger price to back in this one. That brings us to Saint Calvados, who can boast four wins in five outings ahead of Saturday’s meeting. He was able to claim a win at Naas just last month, part of some excellent chase form. The outsider is still a contender in this one, and the Harry Whittington trained five-year-old has shown some impressive potential in recent times. With an 80% strike rate in chase meetings, and a 494% return on investment across his previous races at this level, we think that the outsider is a value pick. At 6/1 with BetVictor, he’s worth a low stake too.
