2023 National Hunt Chase Betting Odds at Cheltenham racecourse

Tuesday, 14 March 2023

Run Wild Fred and Stattler are among the betting favourites to win the 2022 National Hunt Challenge Cup, with Gordon Elliott and Willie Mullins the respective trainers of the Cheltenham Festival market leaders. It will be interesting to see whether the majority of 2022 Cheltenham tips come for each horse.

Capodanno unseated his rider in the last outing but the JP McManus-owned horse could be a good each-way bet when it comes to this final race on the Tuesday of the 2022 Cheltenham Festival. Fury Road might also represent Gordon Elliott in this encounter.

2022 National Hunt Challenge Cup Tips

There are a maximum of sixteen runners who can line up in the 2022 National Hunt Challenge Cup Amateur Jockeys' Novices' Chase, with the field still sorting itself out and it’s worth noting that there are several horses entered who might be rerouted to another encounter at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival.

However, Stattler looks to be a likely runner and the Willie Mullins-trained horse is bidding for a third consecutive victory this season. The seven-year-old won the Naas Racecourse Business Club Novice Chase at the end of January, travelling sweetly over three miles and one furlong and that was on good to yielding ground.

Previously to this, Paul Townend rode Stattler to a win in a Beginners Chase over two miles and five furlongs, with the horse being sent off as the 7/2 favourite to win the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival before finishing fourth and embarking on a chasing career.

Run Wild Fred Will Be Among Cheltenham 2022 Betting Tips

Gordon Elliott will be back at the Cheltenham Festival after previously missing the 2021 meeting, with the Irish handler serving his ban and he will now look to challenge Willie Mullins when it comes to the Cheltenham top trainer betting. The former has Run Wild Fred and there’s plenty to recommend an eight-year-old who hasn’t been out of the first two this season.

The horse was sent off as the 4/1 favourite in the Ladbrokes Troytown Handicap Chase at Navan on 21 November 2021, with the runner impressing thanks to a seven-length victory. However, the runner was beaten by eight lengths when running against Fury Road and perhaps the latter is worthy of consideration.

Indeed, Fury Road is also trained by Gordon Elliott and perhaps we will see this horse come through to take up the running, with the runner having proven underwhelming when finishing well behind the leaders on a recent outing at Leopardstown in the Ladbrokes Novice Chase.

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.
