Ultima Handicap Chase Betting Preview & Tips

Day 1 – Tuesday 10th March 2020 – 2.50pm – Ultima Handicap Chase – Grade 3 – 3m1f

The Ultima Handicap Chase is the first handicap race of the Cheltenham Festival and in the 2020 renewal will follow the Arkle on day one of the meeting. It is not an easy race for punters as any handicap of this sort, but there are some key trends we should use when picking our horse.

There are three important trends we have identified in the Ultima Handicap Chase.

1 – All the previous ten winner of this handicap chase had run at least once at Cheltenham
2 – Nine of the last ten winners have landed a race over three miles or more
3 – Nine of the last ten winners were present at the previous renewal of the Cheltenham Festival

Our Bet: The Conditional

The Conditional has made the switch to David Bridgewater’s stable at the beginning of the season. After a winless first season over fences in Ireland, The Conditional open his account this season after just two starts for Bridgewater. That success came at Cheltenham’s Showcase Meeting. Tom Cannon’s mount defeated West Approach and secured an impressive win. He did very well in the Ladbrokes Trophy. De Rasher Counter managed to win eventually by just a length, but The Conditional was steadily closing on the winner. David Bridgewater’s eight years old failed to get home in the Classic Chase at Warwick, and dropping back to three miles will suit him. He is ticking every box to win the Ultima, and it is our confident pick.

Our Verdict: The Conditional

Ultima Handicap Chase History

The Ultima Handicap Chase, formerly called the William Hill Trophy is a race over 3 miles and a half a furlong. This race is for 5 years olds and older that have to overcome 19 fences. The prize fund for the 2019 renewal was £75,000. 

Horses that take part in the Ultima Handicap Chase are also likely to compete in the Grand National at Aintree the following April. In 2008 Wichita Lineman managed to won at the end of an extraordinary race. He was ridden by the legendary Tony McCoy and had an impressive comeback being nearly 20 lengths off at one time. Several jockeys have won this race twice, and amongst them, we have the likes of Robert Thornton and Paul Carberry. Trainer Fred Rimell and Fulke Walwyn have won this race four times each.
