Ryanair Steeple Chase Betting Odds
The Ryanair Steeple Chase – 14:50PM
The Ryanair Chase is one of the most exciting races of the Cheltenham Festival week and although not quite at “Championship” status in official terms, it is every inch the top class Grade 1 Steeplechase in its own right.
Indeed, it has taken over from the Championship Stayers’ Hurdle race, regarded as the feature contest on St. Patrick’s Thursday.
Either way, the Ryanair Chase adds huge quality to the day and last year, Un De Sceaux oozed class and toughness when landing his second Cheltenham Festival success from three visits.

After his romp in the Grade 1 Ascot Chase, Un De Sceaux’s stock has never been higher and this winning machine is the one they all have to beat once more.
But he isn’t getting any younger, and Top Notch has been just that all season, on the back of finishing a brave second to Yorkhill in the JLT Novices Chase in 2017. He is 11/2 to score for trainer Nicky Henderson at early Cheltenham betting odds and top owner Simon Munir and Top Notch has the younger, improving legs.
Fox Norton is a no nonsense Grade 1 chaser and is unlikely to be far away, while the interesting Frodon is also improving and could hit the frame at bigger prices.
