Festival Handicap Steeple Chase Betting Odds


The Festival Handicap Steeple Chase – 14:50PM

Last year, this value staying handicap chase went to trainer David Pipe who struck with Un Temps Pour Tout at 9/1 on Cheltenham Champion Day and this course lover will surely make his presence felt once again at the 2018 Festival.

The Ultima Handicap Steeplechase takes a horse that is capable of coping with a big field, high paced race over a long distance of 3 miles and 1 furlong, so the ability to stay well is also a key attribute for those hoping to trouble the judge in this valuable contest.

Down the years, it can pay to look out for proven Cheltenham Festival betting form, but equally, there are lots of unexposed and improving horses starting to fill the picture.

Main Players

Cause Of Causes has proven himself to love the Cheltenham racecourse over the years and he would be an exciting addition to this race, while Nicky Henderson’s Gold Present could be the best of the UK horses, on the back of his promising season so far.

Another improved horse is the Paul Nicholls trained Frodon, who may well be too high in the handicap now and could take his chance in the Ryanair Chase instead, but connections could see fit to let him take his chance here too, with the services of the brilliant jockey Bryony Frost claiming a 5lb weight allowance.
