One of the handicap highlights of any Festival, the Kim Muir is for amateur riders only and is run over 3 miles 2 furlongs with 19 fences. The Kim Muir is always the last race on Festival Thursday and is often a tricky race for punters to read, although each way opportunities are aplenty.

With big fields of up to 24 runners in-recent years, online bookmakers are always happy to give punters real value in this race, especially as its one of the handicap highlights of the Cheltenham Festival, so expect 5 places or potentially even 6 places each way on the Kim Muir Handicap Chase. Of course, offering 5 places each way or sometimes even 6 places each way is an excellent way to offer maximum profit opportunity for punters and is a promotion which will drive 2024 Cheltenham Festival new customer registrations for savvy bookmakers.

2024 Kim Muir Handicap Chase 5 or 6 Places Each Way

Formally known as the Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup, the Kim Muir Handicap Chase has been a staple of the Cheltenham Festival since the Second World War. In recent years its been the domain of amateur rider Jamie Codd who has won 4 of the races since 2009. Indeed Codd won with David Pipe trained The Package in 2015 and aboard Cause of Causes wearing the JP McManus colours in 2016. Cause of Causes also provided Gordon Elliot with his first winner in the Kim Muir, with other recent winners provided by David Pipe (x2), Jonjo O’Neill and Nigel Twiston-Davies. Interestingly Willie Mullins or Paul Nicholls have never trained a winner in this race. 2017 saw a shock 40/1 winner with Domesday Book trained by Buckinghamshire trainer Stuart Edmunds beating plenty of handicap chase talent.

With anything up to 24 runners across recent renewals, online bookmakers payout the standard 4 places each way at 1/4 odds for this handicap chase. However with the Kim Muir Handicap Chase being one of the most anticipated handicaps at the Cheltenham Festival for each-way betting, a growing number of bookmakers over recent seasons have promoted an additional place, with 5 or even 6 places possible for the 2024 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 20% 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.
