2024 Kim Muir Challenge Cup Betting Odds at Cheltenham racecourse

Thursday, 14 March 2024

A big field is anticipated for the 2023 Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup and we’re intrigued to see which horses are backed in the lead-up to this last race on the Thursday of the 2023 meeting. Stumptown and Mr Incredible are the current favourites and a lot depends on the weight that each horse is carrying, with the former having less to carry.

This is a real test of stamina and it could be the final few runners who are left standing when it comes to overcoming twenty-two fences, with Stumptown appearing to tick most of the boxes when it comes to this encounter. The six-year-old has scored successive wins to line up in this race although Monbeg Genius is another runner who has been in the winners’ enclosure more than once.

2023 Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup Betting Tips

Stumptown is bidding for a third successive victory when lining up in the 2023 Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup, with Gavin Cromwell having seen his horse perform to a high level. The horse was sent off as the 6/4 favourite for a recent handicap chase at Sandown Park before triumphing over three miles and that suggests there is more to come from the favourite.

It could be worth comparing the betting odds nearer to the start of the race considering that this is a handicap race where as many as twenty-four runners will compete over twenty-two fences. You essentially want to find a horse that jumps well and is going to have plenty of stamina, with Mr Incredible recently finishing second over three miles and five furlongs.

You can make a case for Angels Dawn and the same applies to Dunboyne who is trained by Gordon Elliott, with the eight-year-old having impressed when finishing second in a handicap chase race at Gowran Park. Having lost by a short head at odds of 25/1, there is a strong feeling that an impressive run can be had at the Cheltenham Festival.

We would recommend waiting for the final declarations before going ahead with your selections. There are several horses who have a multiple entry in this race. It’s also interesting to see which amateur riders are booked on the respective leading horses and that can be quite a strong barometer for which runners stand the best chance.


2022 Kim Muir Challenge Cup Tips

Interestingly, the past three Cheltenham Festival winners in the Kim Muir Challenge Cup have not only been aged seven but also been carrying a similar weight. Any Second Now was carrying 11-11 when the Ted Walsh-trained runner claimed the spoils, with Milan Native securing a victory a year later off a weight of 11-08.

Mount Ida won again for Gordon Elliott thanks to a great ride from Jack Kennedy, although professional riders will be excluded this time around as the amateurs return to the saddles. It will be interesting to see which horses are among the most popular Cheltenham Festival tips.

Frontal Assault and Grand Paradis Among Cheltenham Favourites

Frontal Assault could follow in the footsteps of previous Gordon Elliott-trained runners, with the Gigginstown-owned horse having run a grand race at Fairyhouse a few weeks ago. Towards the end of January, Bryan Cooper gave the seven-year-old a cracking ride and it was just half a length defeat when missing out on a Beginners’ Chase.

The horse ran reasonably well in the 2021 Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle when finishing eighth and there were some talented horses ahead of the runner in that encounter including the hotly anticipated Galopin des Champs. Perhaps this is the great Cheltenham each-way bet for the final race on Day Three.

Grand Paradis is a six-year-old that merits respect, with the horse dead-heating with Frontal Assault in the Get A Run For Your Money With BetVictor Beginners Chase. Previously to this, the horse ran into third place at Fairyhouse Racecourse and should be on the shortlist here.


The Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup is the final race on Day Three of the 2020 Cheltenham Festival and this encounter has been in place since the end of the Second World War, with Astrometer winning the first race in 1946.

This is a race that rewards stamina, with the encounter taking place over three miles and two furlongs, with the jockeys all being amateur riders and Jamie Codd has enjoyed victories in this race on board The Package and Cause Of Causes.

More recently, Domesday Book, Missed Approach and Any Second Now have won the Kim Muir and perhaps this year’s winner could come in the form of Glenloe, with the horse finishing second in the Pertemps Network Final two years ago and he appears to have recovered from injury to take his place this season.

The main concern is that the horse hasn’t scored a victory in any of his previous eleven races, with the runner finishing fourth in a Grade B race at Limerick at the end of 2019, with two other JP McManus horses placing higher in that encounter.

There is likely to be a wide open look about the betting market for this race, with the runners not exactly known at the time of writing, although Cabaret Queen looks set to be lining up and this could be an interesting runner.

Willie Mullins has taken the horse into his yard after he was previously trained by Dan Skelton, with the runner having disappointed on her last trip over to England when being pulled up in the Ladbrokes Trophy Chase.

The Conditional looks like a better proposition considering that the eight-year-old ran impressively when he was last at Cheltenham racecourse, with the David Bridgwater obliging at 14/1 in the Matchbook Betting Exchange Handicap Chase.

There’s plenty to be said for a horse that has previously run well at the track, with some good horses beaten on that occasion. There was also a second placed finish in the Ladbrokes Trophy Chase and an each-way punt could be the way forward.
