2022 Ryanair Chase Racecard Betting Odds

The Ryanair Chase would be the feature race of just about any other day of racing but such is the depth of class at the Cheltenham Festival it actually takes a supporting role on the third day of the Festival. The feature race on Thursday follows this one, with the World Hurdle always a fascinating contest, but for many the Ryanair Chase is almost a fifth Championship contest. We’ve got basic race information, a little history and, most importantly of all, the best Ryanair Chase betting odds around, as well as our betting tips for this brilliant Grade 1 contest.

With 17 fences and two miles, five furlongs between the jockeys and their own slice of history, not to mention a purse of more around £300,000, winning this one is no easy task. One of the newer races at the Festival it has only been run since 2005 and has only been granted Grade 1 status since 2008 but in a short space of time it has become a hugely popular race.

The Ryanair Chase has become one of the biggest races at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival, with so many leading chasers competing over two miles and four furlongs in a battle to land victory in this Grade 1 encounter.

This Cheltenham race always features a competitive betting market and the distance falls somewhere between the Queen Mother Champion Chase and the Gold Cup, with Min heading the betting market and bidding to win for the second consecutive occasion.

Willie Mullins has won the race on three of the past five renewals and Min is certainly a Cheltenham legend who will be a warm order among the racing punters, with the ten-year-old having only run once this season and landed a victory.

Min ran in the John Durkan Memorial Punchestown Chase on 6 December and duly obliged on his seasonal debut at odds of 13/8, with the horse getting the job done on heavy ground and he can expect to have less cut in the ground when it comes to Cheltenham.

However, there are several other horses set to be battling it out and that includes Imperial Aura who is having a fine season and looks set to be a leading contender when it comes to the 2022 Ryanair Chase.

There was so much to like about the Grade 2 victory in the Chanelle Pharma 1965 Chase before the Kim Bailey horse unseated his rider in the recent Ladbrokes Silviniaco Conti Chase although the runner was travelling sweetly enough to suggest he can go close here.

Saint Calvados has only ran once this season and the eight-year-old finished fourth, although the Harry Whittington-trained charge ran into a creditable position considering this was the King George VI Chase, with the horse having only lost by a narrow margin against Min in the Ryanair last year.
