National Hunt Chase Additional Each Way Places
The National Hunt Chase is a Grade 2 race for amateur riders, which is traditionally the longest race at the Cheltenham Festival. Run over the Old Course at a trip of 4 miles and 28 fences, this is a true test of a race. Run now on opening Champion Day Tuesday, the National Hunt Chase has the longest history of any race at the Cheltenham Festival. With fields of up to 20 runners in recent years, online bookmakers are always happy to give punters real value in this race, especially as it's one of the highlights of the Cheltenham Festival, so expect 4 places or potentially even 5 places each way on the National Hunt Chase. Of course, offering 4 places each way or sometimes even 5 places each way is an excellent way to offer maximum profit opportunity for punters and is a promotion which will drive 2019 Cheltenham Festival new customer
registrations for savvy bookmakers.
2019 National Hunt Chase
4 Or 5 Places
The National Hunt Chase may feature amateur riders only, but talented novice chasers is certainly the order of the day. Take 2016 where Jonjo O'Neill trained Minello Rocco won from Native River with Southfield Royale and Vicente making up the minor places. Cheltenham specialist Cause of Causes won in 2015, going on to win the Kim Muir Chase for Gordon Elliott 12 months later. Teaforthree went off as the 5/1 Fav when it won this race in 2012, going on to finish 2nd in the 2013 Welsh Grand National and 3rd in the 2013 Grand National. Chicago Grey was also a popular winner, again for trainer Gordon Elliot, when it won the 141st running of this back in 2011. 2017 saw another Elliott trained winner in the form of Tiger Roll, who will be a feature in this year's Cross Country Chase.
With anything up to 20 runners across recent renewals, online bookmakers pay out the standard 3 places each way at 1/4 odds or more often 1/5 odds for this amateur chase. However with the National Hunt Chase being one of the biggest races at the Cheltenham Festival for each-way betting, a growing number of bookmakers over recent seasons have promoted an additional place or two, with 4 or even 5 places possible for the 2019 running. Remember online bookmakers have a new customer war chest for the Cheltenham Festival, so offering additional each way places attracts new customers who spot the value to be had. Naturally 5 places covers circa 25% of the field - a situation which can only drive the chances of profit.
At the time of writing, no
bookmakers have extended beyond the standard 3 places each way terms. As
soon as this changes we'll confirm details here.
