Good horses win this race, and it takes the same qualities to win this as it does the Gold Cup. The field this year looks good, will we see the next star emerge?
One of the best and most informative races at the festival, the RSA Chase is where Gold Cup stars of the future can be born.
Is there a horse in the field this year that could go on to win a Gold Cup? Yes, and that horse is Monkfish.
This is a huge animal, one that relishes a big test and that is exactly what he will get here, and beyond when he is targeting Gold Cups over the next few years.
A winner of Christmas, the RSA looks right up his street and he can boss this field to give Willie Mullins another huge star to get excited about.
Since then, he’s won again, in perhaps even more impressive fashion at the Dublin Racing Festival and looks to be one of the bankers of the entire meeting.
Since being tipped up to win this race, Monkfish has won again at the Dublin Racing Festival, perhaps his most impressive victory so far, and that has taken him into odds on.
He is a horse that will feature in many doubles and trebles across the meeting, and is now a best price 8/11.
The Big Breakaway, Next Destination and Eklat De Rire are all horses behind him but don’t be surprised to see them all go off at either high single figures or low double figure odds on the day.
