The Grade 1 Ryanair Chase is a two mile five furlong chase open to horses aged five years or older. It is seen as an easier alternative to the Gold Cup but has attracted quality fields in its first nine runnings. 2018 will be just the 13th running of the race, and it was won in 2017 by the 7/4 favourite Un De Sceaux, for trainer Willie Mullins and jockey Ruby Walsh. Check out below our Cheltenham 2018 Ryanair Chase race preview, with odds, tips, predictions, trends, free bets and betting promotions.

RYANAIR CHASE BETTING PREVIEW 

The Ryanair Chase was introduced at the Festival in 2005, and has become the "easier option" for some high class horses to take rather than tackle the Gold Cup. It's a Grade 1 National Hunt chase run over two miles and five furlongs, for horses aged five years and upwards, with  17 fences to be jumped. The race boasts an impressive prize purse of £250,000 and has produced some impressive winners in recent years.

Popular chase Cue Card will run in the Ryanair Chase at the Cheltenham Festival, as trainer Colin Tizzard confirmed.

And now we'll take a closer look at this year's Ryanair Chase renewal and try to determine which horse is likely to prevail.

Altough he is 10yo, UN DE SCEAUX looks as good as ever and has won both of his races so far this season. The first one was an easy task at Cork where he won by 25 lengths from Top Gamble. He then stepped in class and went to Ascot for the Clarence House Chase. UDS only faced 4 rivals but impressively won the race by a comfortable 7 lengths.


CUE CARD was going very well when falling in the Gold Cup last year and ran a blinder last out in the Ascot Chase. A twelve-year old now, he is probably vulnerable now, but he is not one to write off entirely

Paul Nicholls' FRODON slammed a decent field at Cheltenham by 17 lengths. He finished third of 7 behind Waiting Patiently beaten 18l at 9/1 on his latest outing in a Grade 1 chase in the Group 1 Betfair Ascot Chase at Ascot

BALKO DES FLOS was a good second behind Road To Respect at Leopardstown in the Christmas Chase over three miles. He has been saved since then and promises to be a solid each/way proposition. He has twice run at the festival and certainly wasn't disgraced when fifth in the Albert Bartlett despite not getting home.

CLOUDY DREAM was second at Aintree in October and then again runner up behind Fox Norton here at Cheltenham. He also travelled supremely well in the Denman Chase behind Native River at Newbury. Last time out he did not see out the longer trip when second to Definitly Red.

SUB LIEUTENANT was second only to to Un De Sceaux last year. This season he has had three starts including a 3rd to Sizing John in the John Durkan back in December. He has not won since 2016 so it may be difficult for him in this company.
