  • Written by David Bet
Wanna bet on the Cheltenham Top Trainer market? This year will see a number of candidates with real champion horses in their stables. But who will come out on top? Below you’ll find some of our top picks for who will be top trainer at Cheltenham 2020…
When it comes to getting a winner at Cheltenham, some trainers simply have the knack. It’s all about picking the right horses for the right race and some know how to do it better than others. Down the years Nicky Henderson has been a marvel at this, as has Willie Mullins. However, in more recent times there have been a number of other contenders vying for, and winning top trainer at Cheltenham.

Cheltenham Festival Top Trainer 

Willie Mullins

Always enjoys success at Cheltenham is Willie Mullins. He has more wins than any other trainer and could significantly add to those in 2020.

Al Boum Photo is favourite for the Gold Cup with most bookmakers, priced around 7/2, although there’s also plenty of chance Kemboy could steal the crown, certainly worth an each way bet at 7/1.

Faugheen will be one to watch, while other horses to back across the festival include Asterion Forlonge and Chacun Pour Soi who has an excellent chance of bringing Mullins his very first Champion Chase.

Gordon Elliott

Gordon Elliott is second-favourite in this market, although considering he has Tiger Roll, Delta Work and Envoi Allen among others at his disposal, this price could ultimately prove great value.

Henry De Bromhead

De Bromhead will have the luxury of Rachael Blackmore riding many of his contenders and he has a solid number of hopefuls going into Cheltenham 2020.

The Waterford trainer will be looking at Honeysuckle in particular for a win, while A Plus Tard was rode to victory in the Ryanair Chase last year and is favourite again at 9/4.

Minella Indo is another to watch having really come to the fore of late, while Notebook and Monalee have an excellent chance of success at the festival too.

Nicky Henderson

Always a big name at Cheltenham with plenty of winners. Henderson has been picking up wins for 35 years and has some real contenders this year.

Pentland Hills is certainly one to watch, but Altior won't feature in the Champion Chase.

Champ is looking good for the RSA Chase, while there’s also plenty of chance of a win with the in-form

Santini, Epatante and Shiskin.

Henderson has 64 winners at Cheltenham and with such a strong stable, he’ll certainly be adding to that figure.

Dan Skelton

Started as an assistant to Paul Nichols but has stepped out of his shadow and become a leading trainer in his own right.

Has some good chances at Cheltenham and while he may struggle to become the leading trainer this year, it’s worth looking out for the likes of Allmankind, who Skelton recently cited as being his most exciting ever horse.

Allmankind will be running the Triumph Hurdle and is one of the favourites, while Maire Banrigh is a good punt for the Arkle. There will certainly be a few more potential winners in his locker, as Skelton really looks to nail down his place at Cheltenham.

Alan King

King has 15 Cheltenham winners to his name since his first in 2004, and Sceau Royal could add him another one in the Champion Chase, priced at a well priced 25/1.

Who Dares Wins is perhaps his strongest chance though, with the Ultima or RSA Chase looking a likely entry for him.
