Hunters Chase Betting PreviewThe Foxhunters Chase is always a popular contest with the Festival drawing to a close. It is the Gold Cup for amateur riders and older horses. An extreme test ran over the same course and distance as the Gold Cup - three miles, two and a half furlongs - so that definitely tests out the horses jumping and stamina. The race is for chasers and the age limit on the race is five year old and above, and it usually attracts horses that are veterans.
Furthermore, the Foxhunters Chase is now the richest and most prestigious hunter chase of the season, worth a total of 40,000.
And now we'll take a closer look at this year's Foxhunter Steeple Chase and try to determine which horse is likely to prevail.
Who will win the Hunters Chase 2021?Willie Mullins' BILLAWAY finished a 10-length second to It Came To Pass in this race last year and has improved since then. He became the clear favourite for the Foxhunter Chase following his Down Royal victory in December.
Despite being 11 years old, the 2020 winner IT CAME TO PASS was an impressive winner at 66/1 and could attempt to follow up in 2021. He has beaten Billaway decisively on two occasions and will be no pushover.
RED INDIAN finished a respectable fifth to Vintage Clouds in the Peter Marsh last year. He has won a couple of point-to-points already this season and has some useful form under Rules.
STAKER WALLACE is a dual point-to-point winner. He’s fairly consistently been amongst the better hunter chasers in Ireland for over a season and he has justifiable place claims again.
STAND UP AND FIGHT probably has a little bit more to improve, having been behind Jury Duty when we last saw him at Thurles, while Billaway has beaten him twice.
The 13-year-old HAZEL HILL won on his recent outing at Ludlow last month. He was soundly beaten by Highway Jewel in a point in December, and having also been beaten by Minella Rocco last season, it’s probably fair to see he’s not quite the force he once was.
