Foxhunters Chase Cheltenham 2021 Preview

The Foxhunters Chase will have a different feel to it in 2021, with professional riders up on board the hunters and pointers who always provide a terrific spectacle over the Gold Cup distance. Thrills and spills are usually rarely far away at the blistering gallop, though perhaps there will be a more measured pace this time around.

Stakes are best kept to a minimum, but the prolific Billaway has been laid out for this prize and his runner-up effort in this race in 2020 was a cracking effort (left with plenty to do from rear behind the impressive 66/1 winner It Came to Pass).

Foxhunter Chase Winners

With just £45,000 in prize money this may be the lowest quality race of the four days, but it provides a stern test of horse and rider over 3m2f (and is always a thrilling spectacle with luck in running a huge part). It Came to Pass ran out a shock winner of a typically incident packed renewal in 2020, cheered up the hill by the bookmakers only as he gamely landed the spoils at 66/1.
