Hunters chase odds

There’s a change of pace in the Hunters' Chase (16:10), with the amateur riders taking to the Gold Cup course with their hunter chasers. There have been four winning favourites in the last ten years, but we’ve also seen some shocks, including two winners returning an SP of 66/1.

We’ve looked at the Hunters’ Chase odds for 2024’s race. Betfred will give a FREE BET up to £10 if your selection finishes second.

Hunters' Chase odds Cheltenham

  • Its On The Line 9/4
  • Ferns Lock 11/4
  • Billaway 6/1
  • Premier Magic 6/1

14/1 bar

Its On The Line 9/4

Favourite for the race looks like being 9/4 chances Its On The Line for Emmet Mullins. The seven-year-old has beaten all this season, winning on all three starts against some of Friday’s opponents. He beat Ferns Lock at Down Royal in December, and last time out at Naas, he got the better of third favourite Billaway. He was second in this race last year.

Ferns Lock 11/4

In opposition is Ferns Lock, who is four from six and bounced back from that defeat to Its On The Line to win by eight lengths last time out at Thurles. The seven-year-old makes his first trip across the Irish Sea.

Billaway 6/1

Billaway is no stranger to Cheltenham; he won this race in 2022 and has been a runner-up twice. A faller in 2023, his one outing this season was in defeat to Friday’s favourite, albeit only by a head. At 12 years old, he’s the senior statesman of the field.

Premier Magic 6/1

Trainer Bradley Gibbs saddles 11-year-old Premier Magic, who won this race last year at 66/1! He’s unbeaten since, too, winning again at Cheltenham in May before picking up point-to-point victories in January and February.

Samcro 14/1

Many will be familiar with the name Samcro, a winner of the Ballymore and a Marsh. He’s only run in point-to-points since May 2022. He has won four of his last five, though and should he retain his enthusiasm, he could feature here at 12/1. 

Sine Nomine 16/1

Fiona Needham trains the eight-year-old Sine Nomine who has been running in a mix of point-to-points and hunter chase contests. Last time out, she was a 15-length winner at Wetherby.

Time Leader 25/1

Hannah Roach enters Time Leader, who is a 25/1 shot with Betfred. The 10-year-old was fifth in last year’s Foxhunters at Aintree over the Grand National fences and has two wins from his three starts this season, most recently at Hereford in January.

Quintin’s Man 25/1

The seven-year-old won at Wincanton earlier in the season and has some course form, winning here last May.

Shantou Flyer 33/1

Old favourite Shantou Flyer is now owned by Paul Nicholls and will be ridden by his daughter Olive. The 14-year-old first ran at the Festival in 2016 and has been second in an Ultima, placed in a Kim Muir, and hit the post, having placed three times in this race.

Ramillies 40/1

Irish raider Ramillies has been busy this season with nine runs, four times in point-to-points. He was well beaten at Gowran Park last time out, which was as recent as last week.

D’ango 50/1

The 11-year-old won at Warwick earlier in the season but hasn’t previously run in this standard of opposition.

From The Heart 150/1

The rank outsider in the field has a chase rating of 107, and it would be a big surprise if the gelding were to make the frame here.
