Ryanair Chase Tips

2019 Ryanair Chase Ante-Post Tips

MONALEE (8/1 William Hill) has proven himself to be a top-quality chaser since switching codes at the start of last season and Henry De Bromhead’s charge has secured plenty of good results. The eight-year-old performed well during his trial for the Gold Cup, holding on for second in the Savills Chase behind the imperious Kemboy. Yet, it was a performance that may have finally convinced De Bromhead that three miles isn’t Monalee’s best trip.

The former Albert Bartlett and RSA runner-up is one from seven over three miles during his career. Both of his victories over fences to date have come over two-and-a-half miles, including a superb victory in last year’s Flogas Novices’ Chase, where Noel Fehily’s mount held on at the front to beat a wave a talented opponents.

The Ryanair Chase could be perfect for a hardy, front-running sort like Monalee. With Waiting Patiently, Shattered Love and Politologue likely to enter, alongside Min, Un De Sceaux, Frodon and Balko Des Flos, this year’s fifth Championship race is shaping up to be a hot affair, but count Monalee out at your peril and he currently offers each-way backers plenty of ante-post value.

2019 Ryanair Chase Entries

Last year, Balko Des Flos and Davy Russell picked off the front-running Un De Sceaux and stormed clear down the home straight to hand Michael O’Leary a first ever victory in the race his company sponsors. Indifferent form since then means last year’s Ryanair winner currently sits on a best price of 10/1 with Ladbrokes to defend his crown and a classy bunch of rivals are currently lined up in opposition.

The Ryanair Steeple Chase

Affectionately known as the fifth Championship race at the Cheltenham Festival, the Ryanair Chase as steadily grown in stature since it was introduced to the Festival in 2005. A dynamic blend of speed and stamina is required to triumph in the Ryanair and only the finest chaser in the field will be good enough to claim this coveted Grade One prize. 

While the names of Cue Card, Vautour and Un De Sceaux stand out on the honours board, Alberta’s Run is the only horse to retain his Ryanair crown, winning at back-to-back Cheltenham Festivals in ’10 and ’11.
