The Ryanair Chase is the leading race for horses over the intermediate trip at the Cheltenham Festival.

Allaho won the last two renewals in blistering fashion to confirm his status as one of the best horses in training and Willie Mullins’ stable star is likely to bid for a record-breaking third victory in the Grade 1.


There are 17 fences to be jumped over 2m4½f on the New Course at Cheltenham and a prize worth £211,013 is on offer to connections of the first past the post in the 2023 renewal.

You can run the rule over our antepost Ryanair Chase odds on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise all the key details about this year’s renewal can be found below.

Allaho is the favourite with Paddy Power ahead of his crack at a third successive Ryanair Chase, although the nine-year-old could head to Cheltenham without a prep run due to a training setback.

Stablemate Blue Lord is next in our early betting and proved his class over the extended 2m4f trip by landing the Clonmel Oil Chase on seasonal reappearance in November.

Dual Cheltenham Festival winner Shishkin is also prominent in our antepost market with trainer Nicky Henderson planning to step the gelding up in trip after a disappointing showing in the Tingle Creek.
