Kim Muir Chase betting tips: Two against the field for the day three finale at Cheltenham Festival

Brian Healy looks through the potential field of entries for the Kim Muir Chase, the closing race on day three of the Cheltenham Festival and he gives his two against the field in a competitive finale.

Closing out the third day of the Cheltenham Festival, the Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup goes to post at 5.30pm, and the competitive contest is a handicap chase open to amateur riders.

The 3m2f contest gets underway from 5.30pm and the amateur riders’ handicap boasts a first prize in excess of £40000; a maximum field of 24 runners will face the starters’ tapes for this contest, and Brian Healy picks out his two against the field for the day three curtain closer at the Cheltenham Festival.

ITS ALL GUESSWORK (8/1, Coral) carries the same colours as last year’s runner-up Mall Dini, but Gordon Elliott’s charge could go one place better than that one, and the Mahler gelding ought to go close here.

A very useful hurdler, the Mahler gelding has taken well to the larger obstacles and he has shown good form over fences where he has only once finished outside the frame. 

Third on his chase debut, he collected back-to-back silver medals at Kilbeggan at Listowel prior to winning at Navan in September where he ran out a six lengths’ victor over Rueben James; and he looked set to go close when falling at the last in the Munster National.

Given a break on the back of that mishap, he showed no ill effects to quickly bounce back with a good third over hurdles at Punchestown where he finished eight lengths’ third behind Cap York. He caught the eye with the way he travelled into the race, but late mistakes robbed him of valuable momentum although he finished to good effect.

Back over fences here, he could build on that outing to go close.


OVERLAND FLYER (25/1, Paddy Power) is still relatively unexposed over fences, and with Paul Nicholls’ yard in scintillating form coming into the Cheltenham Festival, the Westerner gelding could go well in this competitive heat.

Twice a winner between the flags prior to joining this yard, he hasn’t always been straightforward since and he went the wrong way following a debut hurdles win at Taunton back in January 2017.

However, he bagged back-to-back silver medals on each of his first two starts over fences at Newton Abbot and Wincanton, and he might just have needed the run when disappointing at Worcester almost six months on.

He has since had wind surgery, after which his reappearance was underwhelming; but he built on that effort to run out a ready winner at Wincanton next time when dropped back in trip, running out a four lengths’ victor over Dentley De Mee.

He steps markedly back up in distance, and he is well-treated under a penalty coming into this contest; he can give a good account of himself in this more competitive contest, and if the longer trip doesn’t prove an inconvenience then he could go close.
