The Ryanair Chase
The Ryanair Chase is a Grade 1 which is open to horses aged five or older and run over 2m 5f on day three of the Cheltenham Festival. It was one of several new races introduced to the meeting when a fourth day was added to it in 2005. Prior to this, there had been a similar event at the meeting called the Cathcart Challenge Cup, but this was restricted to first and second season chasers only. It is considered the ideal race for horses that just fail to get 3m or stay the extended 3m 2f of the Cheltenham Gold Cup. Abertas Run is the only horse to win the race twice, landing back-to-back victories in 2010 and 2011 for trainer Jonjo O’Neill and jockey AP McCoy.
Ryanair Chase betting tips at Hurdle Bet
When it comes to Ryanair Chase betting tips, Hurdle Bet is an authoritative resource for punters as we direct you to all the best prices for the main supporting race on day three of the Festival. Trainers Willie Mullins, Paul Nicholls, O’Neill and David Pipe have all won the race twice. Michael O’Leary, owner of sponsors Ryanair, is yet to see his famous maroon and white colours of Gigginstown House Stud carried to victory. Valseur Lido ran a blinder for him in 2016 when runner-up to Vautour and looked sure to make a bold bid to go one better this season until he picked up an injury. Sub Lieutenant was second in the 2017 renewal behind the ultra impressive Un De Sceaux for Mullins. Whoever Ruby Walsh gets the leg up on commands huge respect as he is a four-time winning jockey in the race, including those Mullins mounts these past two years.
