Cheltenham Festival Ante-post Tip | 2023 Ryanair Chase

FAKIR D’OUDAIRIES @ 8/1 with bet365

This JP McManus-owned 8 year-old missed the Cheltenham Festival last season, but Fakir D’Oudairies was runner-up in the 2021 Ryanair Chase and this looks his preferred target again in 2023.

Yes, he could face the winner of the 2021 renewal – Allaho – once more, but the early betting for the Ryanair Chase also has Galopin Des Champs in as favourite and he’s much more likely to run in the Cheltenham Gold Cup, where he’s the current market leader.

A similar story applies to the third horse in the Ryanair Chase betting – Blue Lord, who is expected to run in the Queen Mother Champion Chase on the Wednesday.

Therefore, there is every chance in the build-up to the Ryanair Chase, that the race will cut-up a fair bit and that will mean that the current 8/1 Cheltenham odds of Fakir D’Oudairies will vanish without trace and if making the final line-up should be a much shorter price.

We also saw the horse only last Sunday at Thurles, when winning the Grade Two Horse & Jockey Chase, and despite being a lucky winner with the Willie Mullins-trained Haut En Couleurs 2 lengths clear when falling at the last, it was still a solid effort with the classy Chacun Pour Soi way back in third.

This should have put Fakir D’Oudairies spot-on for the Festival.

Plus, with the safety-net of the Bet365 Non Runner, No Bet on all the 2023 Cheltenham Festival championship races (including the Ryanair), then even if the Joseph O’Brien-trained Fakir D’Oudairies doesn’t make the race, you’ll get your money back.
