Ultima Handicap Chase 2022 Preview

A typically wide open Ultima, with the bookmakers keen to attract business and currently quoting 10/1 the field to try and lure in the punters.

Does He Know has attracted some interest from a potentially lenient handicap mark, but his form over fences has come in small fields and he might lack the necessary experience for a race of this nature. Perhaops the tough and proven Coko Beach could be the one to side with, particulary with his very astute connections having such a fantastic record at this Festival over the years.

DEATH DUTY

Gordon Elliott’s handicapper bounced back to his very best form when winning over 3m4f at Punchestown in February, and he is confidently expected to back that run up on much better ground in a typically competitive Ultima. There is still plenty of scope from this kind of mark, with the trainer recently quoted as saying this was his best handicapped horse over the four days, and his proven stamina for further will count for plenty up the stamina sapping final climb.

Ultima Handicap Chase Winners

Unusually for a big festival handicap, the Ultima has been dominated by UK trainers, with David Pipe in particular having a terrific record in the race. He produced Un Temps Pour Tout to land the prize in 2016 and 2017, and in 2021 Sue Smith landed a memorable and very rare win for the north as Vintage Clouds proved a very game winner up the hill under Ryan Mania.
