Ryanair Chase Betting Odds Comparison - Cheltenham

17/03/2022 14:50:00

The Ryanair Chase might be a relatively new race at the Cheltenham Festival although this Grade 1 encounter is highly popular and has become one of the feature races of the four-day meeting, with trainers often sending horses to this race that fall somewhere between the two miles of the Queen Mother Champion Chase and the three miles of the Gold Cup.

We always seem to get an exciting betting heat when it comes to the Ryanair which takes place on Day Three of the Cheltenham meeting, with Willie Mullins having a couple of live chances for this race although there are several contenders that could run into the frame on 18 March 2021.

Min Favourite to Win Ryanair Chase With Some Bookies

Min is a Cheltenham Festival legend and has been lining up in various races for several years, with Rich Ricci’s horse having first appeared in the Supreme Novices Hurdle back in March 2016 when finishing second to Altior and he has continued to run into the frame during subsequent meetings.

Min was second again to Altior two years later when finishing runner-up in the Queen Mother Champion Chase, while the horse ran fifth in the same race twelve months down the line before landing his first ever Festival victory in the Ryanair Chase last year.

Min returned to the track recently to win the John Durkan Memorial Punchestown Chase and that was on two miles and four furlongs of heavy ground, so trainer Willie Mullins won’t have any concerns about soft ground for this horse.

Imperial Aura Could Be a Cheltenham Festival Winner

Imperial Aura is a horse that has been impressive the horse

crowds in recent months, with Kim Bailey having a horse that jumps well and clearly has bags of stamina, although it remains to be seen whether he can produce the goods at Cheltenham Racecourse.

The eight-year-old has enjoyed back-to-back wins this season, obliging at Carlisle Racecourse in early November before then landing a triumph in the Chanelle Pharma 1965 Chase at Ascot when beating Itchy Feet and announcing himself as a potential Ryanair winner.

A Plus Tard runs for Henry de Bromhead and the six-year-old delivered in the recent Savills Chase at Leopardstown, with Kemboy, Presenting Percy and Allaho among the horses beaten, while this charge has a strong recent track record and finished third in the Ryanair last year.


We always look forward to the Ryanair Chase at the Cheltenham Festival and the 2020 renewal promises to be no different. Despite the fact that this is one of the more recent introductions to the meeting, it has captured the imagination and several top-class horses enter who sometimes fall between the two mile and three mile mark.

Defi Du Seuil is a talented seven-year-old who currently heads the betting market, with the Philip Hobbs-trained charge having scored two recent successes at Cheltenham and Sandown. The victory in the former race was especially eye-catching and reaffirmed that this horse can travel well at this unique racecourse.

Last season, Defi Du Seuil was able to win the competitive JLT Novices’ Chase and oblige as the 3/1 favourite and the form of second-placed Lostintranslation this season would suggest that the former is the one to beat.

With Barry Geraghty likely to be on board, we’re expecting this horse to run a big race providing that the connections are primed for this particular race, although there is sure to be stiff competition.

Owner Rich Ricci has a couple of star names who are entered for the Ryanair, with MIN potentially taking his place in the field and the nine-year-old has a habit of pitching up at the Cheltenham Festival and running an impressive race.

Min’s fifth place at the Champion Chase last year illustrates that two miles could be too sharp for the Willie Mullins-trained charge, while CHACUN POUR SOI has appeared out of nowhere and could yet spring a surprise in this race.

A second placed finish behind A Plus Tard at Leopardstown on 27 December would suggest that Mullins could be very strong when it comes to the Ryanair.

We also have DOUVAN who could make an appearance, with DELTA WORK also an interesting name among the entrants. The Gordon Elliott was favourite for last year’s RSA Insurance Novices’ Chase but could only finish third when being sent off at 15/8.

CYRNAME is another potential entrant although much comes down to whether the Paul Nicholls horse will be sent off to the Gold Cup or alternatively take his place in this race a day earlier.

FOOTPAD, ALTIOR and MONALEE are all star names that could also line up for the Ryanair and it will be interesting to see how the field cuts up as we get nearer to the start of the race.
