National Hunt Chase Betting Odds Comparison - Cheltenham

15/03/2022 17:30:00

The National Hunt Chase is on the Day 1 racecard for the Cheltenham Festival, with this being the longest distance race on the Tuesday of the meeting. This is a hardy test of stamina, with the Cheltenham runners lining up and then competing over three miles and five furlongs, with the horses having to negotiate two circuits of the Prestbury Park track and also several big obstacles.

The race has been in operation since 1860 and we’ve seen leading amateur jockey Jamie Codd land a hat-trick of races in recent times, with the Irishman having secured a victory on Cause Of Causes in 2015, while La Breuil and Ravenhill secured the spoils for him in consecutive years in 2019 and 2020.

Galvin Favourite to Win 2021 National Hunt Chase

Galvin looks like the best chance for Gordon Elliott at the time of writing and the famous Irish trainer has already secured four victories in the National Hunt Chase, with Jamie Codd likely to be on board a runner who might just be peaking at the right time when this race comes around in March 2021.

The six-year-old lay down a marker when winning the recent Matchbook Better Way To Bet Novices' Chase at Cheltenham Racecourse and that was over a distance of three miles which suggests that the horse should able to get the further trip for this race.

Indeed, Galvin was second to Imperial Aura at the 2020 Cheltenham Festival in a Novices’ Chase and that form is stacking up pretty well considering the latter turned in a recently impressive performance over the big obstacles.

Monkfish, Fury Road and Next Destination Next in the Betting

Monkfish is a talented six-year-old and could be the best chance for trainer Willie Mullins, with the horse carrying the colours of Rich Ricci and he managed to get up to win the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle when being sent off at odds of 5/1.

Since then, the horse made an appearance at Fairyhouse in a Beginners Chase where the horse was sent off as a short price favourite, while Fury Road also looks like an interesting contender and Fury Road was third in the Albert Bartlett and seems to relish the soft ground that is likely to be in evidence on Day One of the Festival.

Next Destination could line up for this race and trainer Paul Nicholls looks as though he could have a long-distance star, with the horse winning the Ladbrokes John Francome Novices' Chase at Newbury which looks like a useful marker.


The National Hunt Chase takes place on Tuesday 10 March 2020, with this being one of the longest races at the Cheltenham Festival. The horses compete over a distance of three miles and seven furlongs, with this also being a historic race due to it first being inaugurated in 1860.

The National Hunt Chase takes place on Day One of the meeting and the novel thing about this race is that amateur jockeys are on board the runners, with the runners and riders having to encounter 25 obstacles as they look to make their way around roughly two circuits of a demanding track.

This is clearly a race that rewards stamina and it was Le Breuil who won for trainer Ben Pauling in the 2019 renewal. The seven-year-old was being ridden by Jamie Codd who has developed a reputation for being the finest amateur jockey around, having won this race on board Cause of Causes in 2017.

The most famous winner of the National Hunt Chase is Tiger Roll, with the two-time Grand National winner obliging in 2017 and recent winners have also been Minella Rocco and Rathvinden, with this race resembling something of a Grand National trial in certain years.

As you might expect, the betting for this race is currently wide open, with Champagne Classic trading as the favourite with many bookmakers and the horse is available at 10/1 for those punters who are wanting to back the horse early.

The eight-year-old won the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle at last season’s Cheltenham Festival and the Gordon Elliott horse has since recorded victories at Fairyhouse and Wexford, with Gigginstown probably targeting this race next spring.

Sam Spinner is also a well-known horse who has run well at the Cheltenham Festival in the past, with the runner having performed in the Stayers’ Hurdle in 2019 and finished second behind Paisley Park.

Trainer Jedd O’Keeffe has decided to put the horse over timber this year and two successive wins at Wetherby suggests that the runner has a lively chance in this race.

Battleoverdoyen is the other horse featuring prominently in the betting at the moment. The Gordon Elliott charge was sent off as the 3/1 favourite to win the Ballymore at the 2019 Cheltenham Festival although it was pulled up after weakening before the finish.

Since then, the horse has passed examinations in races at Galway and Punchestown, with Elliott potentially having two of the favourites in this race through this horse and Champagne Classic.
