Ryanair Chase Betting Tips, Preview & Trainer Quotes
Ryanair Chase Tips
This year's renewal, on paper at least, maybe isn't as strong as we have become accustomed to, but with several of the names featured close to the head of the market with questions to answer on recent performances, it gives the contest a bit more of open look about it, or does it?
Its currently tied at three a piece in the roll of honour for this prize between Mullins and Nicholls, with the former looking in a far better position to add to that tally in 2021. Nicky Henderson knows what it takes to win a Ryanair Chase, so that’s worth bearing in mind.
Ryanair Chase Details
A proper jumping test for horses aged five years old and above that is run on the new course with seventeen fences over a distance just shy of two miles and five furlongs. First run in 2005 as a Grade two, it has carried a Grade one status since 2008. This years running will however see a reduction in prizemoney, the winner receiving a purse of £149,115.

When & Where To Watch The Ryanair Novices’ Chase

Ryanair Chase Betting Tips
The recent Dublin Racing Festival gave racing fans plenty of clues going forward to Cheltenham dominated predominantly by the all-conquering Willie Mullins stable. The Irish have farmed this contest in recent years and the prospect of that trend changing this year looks doubtful. Favourite Allaho won well on his last start, but has come up short at Grade one level each time. Min was pulled up at the weekend, so last year's winner needs to bounce back and he’s now a ten-year-old.
The UK would have live chances if last year's runner up, Saint Calvados could iron out his fencing and the improving Imperial Auras confidence isn't affected by a rare blip at Kempton last time out. As always so many horses have more than one entry and ground will determine final declarations, so take advantage of the widely available Non Runner No Bet option.
Horse-By-Horse Ryanair Chase Guide
Mullins Flying High?
Although our current favourite has run with real credit on both occasions he has lined up at the festival, they were over three miles. So maybe over this trip can really make use of his stamina and give the Carlow trainer another win in this race. Min finally gained his first Cheltenham success in last years renewal but will have to leave his effort last time out well behind him.
Imperial Aura: Back to Back Festival Wins?
I am willing to forgive the Kempton mishap and although he ran/jumped loose with a leg through the reins, his trainer reported him none the worse. He carried plenty of weight in winning a handicap at last year's Cheltenham festival and managed to beat the second horse by three lengths despite idling close home. The current form of the yard is a concern, but there is time for that to improve.
Saint Calvados To Go One Better?
The trainer has had a poor year (15 winners) but the signs have been better recently and on a going day Saint Calvados is a very talented horse who would be capable of winning this if his jumping held up. He does have more bad than good runs at the track so this has to be factored in also if your willing to take the 10/1 available.
Fakir D’oudairies A Lively Outsider?
Joseph O Brien's charge also holds a Queen Mother entry (2nd 2020) but could be interesting if taking his chance in this as his last win came over two and a half miles, solid run behind Chacun Poir Soi at Leopardstown and has plenty of experience over fences now.
