About The Kim Muir Handicap Chase

The Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir, also known as the Kim Muir, is a handicap race which is open to only amateur jockeys at the Cheltenham Festival.

Raced on Day 3, the Kim Muir Challenge Cup is a key stepping stone for horses who are looking to head to the Grand National either later in the season or later in their career.

The race is open to horses aged five years and over and takes place on the new course at Cheltenham over a distance of three miles and 3 furlongs and is a chase for amateur riders. Within the race, there are 21 fences to be jumped, and as it's a handicap, all of the horses will be carrying a different weight as they head over the steeplechase fences.

Established in 1946, just after world war ii, it was originally called the Kim Muir Amateur Riders' steeplechase and named after a cavalry officer who lost his life in the conflict. However, the addition was made to the name was made in 1991, following the successful training career of trainer Fulke Walwyn who managed to win 40 races at the Cheltenham Festival.

There is one occasion where professional jockeys partnered all the runners in this race, and that was in 2021 due to the restrictions which were applied to the Festival.

Kim Muir Challenge Cup Betting Trends

When it comes to betting trends for the Kim Muir Chase all of the runners will fall into a category. However, unlike many Cheltenham races, this is a stepping stone for runners to move towards the Grand National. Many horses who head to this race have zero falls across the season which means they should be able to handle the tricky Cheltenham fences. If you prefer looking at the betting odds within the last renewals, no winner has odds of over 40/1, but countering that is that favourites have also failed to win, so looking at the middle of the odds should be the best area.
