Ryanair Chase Betting Guide
The highlight of Cheltenham Festivals racing action on Day 3 is set to take place at 14:50 with the Ryanair Chase, which boasts prize money totalling £350,000.
Irish runners have won for the last 3 years, with Willie Mullins winning in 2016 with ‘Vautour’ and in 2017 with ‘Un De Sceaux’, while Henry De Bromhead won in 2018 with ‘Balko Des Flos’.
The 2020 Ryanair Chase yet again sees a number of strong Irish trained contenders, with Willie Mullins ‘Footpad’ touted as the favourite at most British Bookmakers.
After his appearance in the Champion Chase on Day 2 of Cheltenham, Willie Mullins ‘Footpad’ runs again in the Ryanair Chase, and bookmakers see him as a favourite to win.
Of course, it will all depend on his form closer to this years Ryanair Chase, as his season hasn’t gone as well as expected for ‘Footpad’ with 2 disappointing results from his last 2 outings.
Last year’s winning trainer, Henry De Bromhead has a couple of top runners.
‘Monalee’, the 8 year old Bay Gelding performed well last year, securing 2nd place in the RSA Chase, but has only won 1 race so far this season and isn't performing as well as expected.
Willie Mullins has also entered ‘Min’ in the race, with bookmakers believing a victory over a shorter distance could easily be achieved when looking at their Ryanair Chase odds.
‘Min’, the 8 year old Bay Gelding, may just give the Champion Chase a miss in order to avoid another challenge against ‘Altior’ and if that’s the case, ‘Min’ would be one of the strongest contenders to win the Ryanair Chase in 2020.
‘Un De Sceaux’, Willie Mullins 11 year old who won this race in 2017 also secured 2nd place last year, and comes back to challenge for this years race.
Bookmakers offer ‘Un De Sceaux’ as a top contender, and although conditions on the day may not suit him, he's not one to be written off when looking at bookmakers Ryanair Chase odds.
Paul Nicholls trained ‘Frodon’ is also among the top entries, having won 3 of his last 4 races.
The 7 year old Bay Gelding had strong victories at both the Cotswold Chase and Gold Cup Handicap Chase at Cheltenham recently, and with such solid performances on this track, we can see why bookmakers offer ‘Frodon’ as one of the top contenders.
Noel Meade’s ‘Road To Respect’ is also a preferred runner for the Ryanair Chase.
The 8 year old has won or placed in the top 3 in his last 4 races, and looks strong coming into the Ryanair Chase. Of course, last year’s winner ‘Balko Des Flos’ is also in the mix, even though he hasn’t won since his victory in last year’s race.
The Ryanair Chase was previously seen as a race that the elite horses didn’t take part in, but things have changed and it's now seen as one of the top races of the Cheltenham Festival.
With a prize of £350,000 up for the taking, it’s no wonder it now attracts some of the top runners.
