Ryanair Chase Additional Each Way Places
Update 15.3.18 - as
there are only 7 runners declared for this race there will be no extended
each way terms available.
The Ryanair Chase proceeds the championship Stayers Chase on St Patricks Day Thursday 15th March 2018, at the 2018 Cheltenham Festival. Registered as the Festival Trophy,
its a Grade 1 race, run over 2 and a half miles on the New Course at Cheltenham. Featuring top-quality chasers who in the main can't get the Cheltenham Gold Cup trip, or are just shy in quality for the big race, the Ryanair offers-up £170,000 to the winner and has seen plenty of quality winners as a result. For the 2018 Cheltenham Festival any field approaching 12/13 runners is very likely to see 4 places each way offered by online bookmakers, meaning an additional place over and above the standard 3 places each way. Of course, offering 4 places each way in the Ryanair is an excellent way to offer maximum profit opportunity for punters and is a promotion which will drive 2018 Cheltenham Festival new customer
registrations for savvy bookmakers.
2018 Ryanair Chase 4 Places Each Way
The Ryanair Chase has been dubbed the race for horses who aren't quite good enough for the Cheltenham Gold Cup. However the winners list is pure quality. Albertas Run x2, Riverside Theatre, and Dynaste are a great start. Uxizandre provided AP McCoy with his last Cheltenham Festival win in 2015. The hugely popular Colin Tizzard trained Cue Card was the winner of this in 2013. Of late the magnificent Vautour won this under Ruby Walsh in 2016 and the infamous Walsh/Mullins duo won this again last year with Un De Sceaux who proved his class at 7/4F. He is likely to defend his crown in 2018 with Cue Card and Fox Norton his closest likely contenders.
With anything up to 15 runners across recent
renewals, online bookmakers up until now have paid the standard 3 places
each way at 1/4 odds or increasingly commonly 1/5 odds for this Ryanair
Chase. However 2018 could see this change, as the competitive nature of the
online bookmaker industry would make any field of 12+ runners rife for an
additional each way place. We could certainly see 4 places each way for the
Ryanair in 2018. It's worth remembering as a punter, that the big 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 4 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 each way terms. As
soon as this changes we'll confirm details here.
