A stonking boost to the money on offer for the Irish Cesarewitch means this year’s renewal is one of the richest races on the calendar.

The 2m premier handicap is now worth a hefty €600,000, with the first horse past the post bagging a cool €324,000 prize for connections. Woof! Line Out, the 18/1 winner of last year’s contest, took home just €47,000.


As a staying race it attracts plenty of National Hunt interest. Willie Mullins is the most successful trainer in the 21st century with four winners, while Emmet Mullins’ Cape Gentleman claimed the top prize in 2020.

You’ll find everything you need to know about the Irish Cesarewitch 2022 including the date, start time, runners, and Paddy Power’s betting odds below.
