Cheltenham Festival Analysis

A number of the Cheltenham Festival races have a direct impact on the Grand National betting, with a host of prominent National contenders also in action across the four days of the Festival. Here we’ll highlight how some of the Grand National runners fared at Cheltenham, alongside the impact on their Grand National betting odds.

Ultima Chase

The Ultima Handicap at Cheltenham 2024 featured a lot of horses who are also racing in the Grand National. 2023 Grand National winner Corach Rambler won the Ultima Handicap in 2023 so it was a race to keep a close eye on.

The winner of the 2024 Cheltenham Festival Ultima Handicap was Chianti Classico, who will not feature in the Grand National; however, it was the form of Meetingofthewaters that caught the eye. The 7 year old trained by Willie Mullins was near the front of the pack for most of the race. He looked to have a chance of winning the Ultima Handicap near the end. Meetingofthewaters finished 3rd and his good race was noticed by bookmakers. His odds were around 20/1 before the race but now he is around 12/1 and 14/1.

Monbeg Genius was one horse being backed to perform well in the Grand National. That opinion will have now changed following a poor run in the Ultima Handicap. The 8 year old made a bad mistake at the start jumping over one of the fences and never managed to get back into the race. His odds have massively increased. They were around 25/1 and now some bookmakers have him at 50/1.

Kitty’s Light was another horse who bookmakers now do not fancy to win the Grand National after the Ultima Handicap. Odds of 16/1 have now gone up to 33/1 after the 8 year old finished 7th at Cheltenham.

Pertemps Hurdle

Farouk D’Alene odds for the Grand National before the Pertemps Hurdle were 66/1. Following the 9 year olds performance at Cheltenham, the odds stayed at 66/1.

Farouk D’Alene started the race well and was near the front of the pack, keeping good pace with the leader and jumped well. It didn’t continue that way as the horse couldn’t keep up with the pace dropped and finished the Pertemps Hurdle towards the end of the pack.

Ryanair Chase

Both Conflated and Capodanno will have given Grand National punters something to think about. They raced very well in the Ryanair Chase and kept up with the leading pack for the whole race. In the end, Protektorat won, but Conflated finished 3rd and Capodanno finished 4th. The trainers of both will be very happy with their finishes.

Stayers’ Hurdle

Noble Yeats, Asterion Forlonge and Janidil all raced at the Stayers’ Hurdle at Cheltenham in 2024. Asterion Forlonge and Noble Yeats looked strong and were both near the front of the pack for the majority of the race. Janidl was towards the back for most of the race. In the end, Asterion Forlonge and Noble Yeats struggled to keep up with the pace of the leading pack. None of the 3 horses currently racing in the Grand National placed.

TrustATrader Festival Plate

Shakem Uparry was 8/1 for the TrustATrader Festival Plate and impressed many. The 10 year old owned by Harry Redknapp ran a brilliant race and managed to win the race at Cheltenham.

This impressive win saw some bookmakers reduce the odds for the horse at the Grand National. Shakem Uparry was around 66/1 before the race at Cheltenham, but now some bookmakers have the horse as low as 25/1.

Kim Muir Challenge Cup

4 horses riding in the Grand National were involved in the Kim Muir Challenge Cup. There was meant to be 5, but Amirite was a non-runner due to unsuitable ground.

Angels Dawn was in the midfield for most of the race and was challenging towards the end. Sadly the 9 year old fell 2 out. Annual Invictus was the best out of the 4 involved in the race at Cheltenham. The 9 year old was chasing the leaders at the start, but was weakened, with jockey Gina Andrews saying the Gelding was hampered by a faller at the fifth last fence.

Fakir D’alene dropped to the rear at the middle of the race and then pulled up before 4 out. Cepage was in touch with the leaders at the start but couldn’t keep up with the pace and also pulled out.

Cheltenham Gold Cup

Corach Rambler and Nassalam were not the favourites for the Gold Cup but the pair were expected to give a good account of themselves in the biggest race at Cheltenham.

Before this race, Corach Rambler was 12/1 and now his odds have reduced to 7/1. It was a great race from the 10 year old, who finished 3rd in the Gold Cup.

Meanwhile, Nassalam odds were 33/1. They have now dropped to 40/1 following a mediocre race from the 7 year old which saw him pull up.
