Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup Hurdle 2021 Preview

The Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir rounds off a brilliant day of competitive NH racing, and has a different look to it in 2021 with professional riders replacing the usual amateurs as a result of the global pandemic. The 3m2f trip provides a stiff test of stamina, and the current offer of “6/1 the field” looks about right with a shortlist of perhaps five needed to name the winner.

Run Wild Fred has long looked a perfect fit for a handicap of this nature, yet to win in six runs over the larger obstacles but extremely well handicapped as a result (especially if taking his two bumper and two hurdle wins into account). A runner-up effort in the Thyestes chase at Gowran Park in January was a real step in the right direction, and he has been kept fresh since to preserve his mark for the big day in March.

Musical Slave, Favourite #2 for Stephen Harris

Phillip Hobbs frustrating handicapper has been held back by slopping jumping on all runs this season, but he has a big engine and will surely outrun his price here if he can put in a rare clean round of fencing. The 3m2f trip on decent ground will suit ideally, and he remains with a bit of upside over fences after just 8 runs over the larger obstacles.

Kim Muir Challenge Cup Hurdle Winners

The Kim Muir rivals the Foxhunters as something of a hair-raising spectacle, with a huge field of amateur riders racing over 3m2f and a really tough puzzle for punters to solve. There have been more than the usual upsets dating back to 1946, but there was plenty of support for Gordon Elliott’s Milan Native in 2020 when he gamely landed the prize under an inspired ride from Mr Rob James.
