2009 Ryanair Chase winner Imperial Commander

Ryanair Chase Trials

The Ryanair Chase is run over 2m5f on the Thursday of the Cheltenham Festival meeting and was introduced when the festival moved to four days. The runners in the Ryanair tend to be those horses that find the Champion Chase too hot to handle but can't get the trip in the Gold Cup.

Get the latest odds for the 2019 Ryanair Chase.

The races used as trials for the Ryanair tend to also be used for the Champion Chase so make sure that your selection is definitely looking to race in the Ryanair if betting in the ante-post markets. The Paddy Power Chase at Cheltenham in November is a very definite trial however with last years winner Imperial Commander going on to score in the Ryanair plus Fondmort and Our Vic also winning both races, albeit not in the same season.
