Ultima Handicap Chase Betting Tips & Odds 2018

14.50 The Ultima Handicap Steeple Chase

The Ultima Handicap Chase is a tremendous 3m1f race for some of the better staying handicappers in training.

Last year, David Pipe struck with Un Temps Pour Tout at 9/1 and that horse will be one to keep an eye for in 2018, but it’s hotly contested and a big size field is guaranteed.  This race sets things up nicely for the Champion Hurdle on the back of the two Grade 1 Novice races to kick off the Champion Day racecard.

It can pay to look for horses with previous course form, preferably at the Festival itself, but equally you need to look out for unexposed types and of course keep an eye on any Irish contenders.

Whatever your way of finding a winner, there’ll be plenty of value odds and enhanced each way terms available, so be sure to get the best value you can from the bookmakers!

Ultima Handicap Feature Betting Tip

Singlefarmpayment takes his chance in the Ultima Handicap Chase with connections hopeful the jumping issues that have plagued the horse since his fall in the Ladbroke Trophy at Newbury in November will be firmly behind him. He does boast a good record at the venue given a clear round.

Gold Present, a good second to Tully East in the big novices’ handicap at the Festival last year a Ryanair entry but will be better suited to this race. Two recent wins at Newbury and Ascot make him a live contender.

DINGO DOLLAR will be our bet and he has shown huge improvement this season since switching to the bigger obstacles and his form figures over fences read 4-F-1-1. Alan King’s novice is certainly on the rise.

Coo Star Sivola has been the subject of somewhat of a Cheltenham gamble since winning comprehensively at the end of February at Exeter.

Main Players

The Cheltenham betting frenzy for the Ultima Handicap will start proper when the weights are published in February, but the Gordon Elliott’s Cause Of Causes is the market leader, with the in-form Gold Present available at 16/1. Nicky Henderson’s dark and imposing gelding is a brilliant jumper, proved he stays last time out and could be even better on Spring ground.

Singlefarmpayment has often promised to land a big one, while the Paul Nicholls trained Frodon also catches the eye as a solid young horse that could take to this test.

Mala Beach would be another big player from Ireland if taking his chance, while Jonjo O’Neill could well target his Go Conquer here too; another interesting horse in the picture for the Ultima Handicap Chase.
