Paddy Power Plate 2022 Tips – Preview, Odds, Trends and Betting Tip
The Paddy Power Plate is a Grade 3 handicap chase over 2 and a half miles, with runners having to negotiate seventeen fences.
While the very competitive nature of this race, as well as the added risk of each horse not running is reflected in the current odds, picking out a winner can be a rewarding venture, especially given the juicy ante-post prices.
With many potential runners holding entries for other races at the festival, the recommendation would be to play with a bookmaker offering non-runner no bet if possible, although this will be taken into consideration in the price.
While the past form of trainers may not be worth much in these types of races, it is worth noting that since 2010 David Pipe has won this contest on three occasions, with the Irish horses also enjoying some success in recent years.
Paddy Power Plate Betting Tip
Celebre D’Allen made a seamless transition back to fences at Warwick last month, winning not by far, but comfortable enough to suggest a 6lb rise in the weights is entirely justified. The Network gelding has won all three starts since joining Philip Hobbs from French trainer Louisa Carberry in October and looks a worthy favourite, despite facing his toughest test so far.
Celebre D’Allen (6/1 with bet365)
