The Kim Muir Challenge Cup is a chase run for amateur jockeys only over an extended three miles one furlongs where the runners have nineteen fences to jump. Testing ground made this a particularly stamina-sapping renewal last year, when Rathvinden, trained by Willie Mullins, won at odds of 9/2. This article contains a complete 2019 Kim Muir Challenge Cup race preview, our free predictions and betting tips, key trends, best odds, free bets, no deposit bonuses and bookie promotions.

The Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup is the Cheltenham Festival’s showcase of amateur riding talent in the UK. It's a handicap chase run over three miles and one and a half furlongs, for horses aged five years and upwards. A severe test with a big field often going off far too hard, and it can pay to focus in on a proven stayer who is likely to be dropped out in rear during the early stages.

Ridden by amateurs, horses who feature prominently here can go on to run in future Grand Nationals. For instance, 2010 winner Ballabriggs won the Grand National the following season.

And now we'll take a closer look at this year's Kim Muir Challenge Cup 2019 and try to determine which horse is likely to prevail.

MEASUREOFMYDREAMS ran a cracker in the National Hunt Chase in 2016 to finish 3rd behind Minella Rocco. He recentely reappered from a long injury at Fairyhouse last month and his 3rd behind Snugsborough Benny on his comeback was very encouraging. Plus, he has dropped to a very tempting mark.

ITS ALL GUESSWORK finished 3rd on his chase debut and recorded back-to-back silver medals at Kilbeggan and Listowel prior to winning at Navan in September where he ran out a six lengths’ victor over Rueben James. He fell at the last in the Munster National when he was in good position and was 3rd over hurdles at Punchestown last time out, finishing 8 lengths behind Cap York.

NO COMMENT was a respectable 6th last year in the four mile National Hunt Chase and has only had one run since when 5th of 9 behind Bags Groove at Ffos Las.

ANY SECOND NOW ran well to be 5th in the Paddy Power Chase in December over an extended 3 miles. Last time out he was 3rd to Chris’s Dream at Navan and that will have put him spot on for this.

SKY PIRATE had a prep run at Exeter last month and ran a respectable race to finish 4th to Captain Cattistock and should be in the mix.

LIVELOVELAUGH unfortunately fell twelve months ago in the Novice Handicap. He had a while off after that and was actually pulled up on his reappearance at Leopardstown. His last run was much more like it and finished runner-up in a decent handicap off a mark of 136.

After winning his first two starts of the season, THE YOUNG MASTER was denied a hat-trick after pulling up on his most recent outing in the Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury in December.

SQUOUATEUR was (an unlucky in running) 3rd in this race last year off a 3lb lower mark, and was just getting into it when unseating three out in the Kim Muir of 2017.

The unexposed JUST A STING has won two of his three starts over fences, and actually improved again when only beaten by a well-handicapped horse of Paul Nicholls last time out.

Paul Nicholls-trained TOUCH KICK is unexposed over staying trips and was coming back strongly at the line when just prevailing at Taunton last month. He is 4 lb higher here.

OUT SAM won the Cork National on reappearance in November and posted another good effort in a competitive handicap when fourth of 18 in Thyestes at Gowran last time.

SPEAKER CONNOLLY made light of his opening mark at Leopardstown (21f) in December. He finished a creditable third back there from 11 lb higher last month.

CAPTAIN CHAOS won 3 small-field novice chases last term and confirmed return to form (in refitted blinkers) of late, runner-up in Rowland Meyrick (3m) at Wetherby on Boxing Day.
