Supreme Novices’ Hurdle

  • Most successful active trainer: Willie Mullins (7 wins)
  • Most successful active owners: Rich and Susannah Ricci (3 wins)
  • Most successful active jockey: Nico de Boinville (2 wins)
  • 2021: Appreciate It  (8/11F, Willie Mullins, Paul Townend)

  • 2019: Klassical Dream (6/1, Willie Mullins, Ruby Walsh)
  • 2018: Summerville Boy(9/1, Tom George, Noel Fehily)
  • 2017: Labaik (25/1, Gordon Elliott, Jack Kennedy)
  • 2016: Altior (4/1, Nicky Henderson, Nico de Boinville)
  • 2015: Douvan (2/1F, Willie Mullins, Ruby Walsh)

Top jumps trainers Nicky Henderson and Willie Mullins are on the Cheltenham list of winners for the Supreme in recent years. Both have saddled a couple to success since 2015. These are obvious stables to follow if you’re seeking a Cheltenham winner 2021 or two in general.

Arkle Challenge Trophy Novices’ Chase

  • Most successful trainer: Nicky Henderson (7 wins)
  • 2021: Shishkin (4/9F, Nicky Henderson, Nico de Boinville)
  • 2020: Put The Kettle On (16/1, Henry De Bromhead, Aidan Coleman)
  • 2019: Duc Des Genievres (5/1, Willie Mullins, Paul Townend)
  • 2018: Footpad (5/6F, Willie Mullins, Ruby Walsh)
  • 2017: Altior (1/4F, Nicky Henderson, Nico de Boinville)
  • 2016: Douvan (1/4F, Willie Mullins, Ruby Walsh)
  • 2015: Un De Sceaux (4/6F, Willie Mullins, Ruby Walsh)

Mullins has trained four of the last six Cheltenham past winners in the Arkle. Rival Henderson has the best record of any handler in the race, however, with half-a-dozen victories in the course of his long career. One of these top National Hunt stables could well have a Cheltenham winner 2021 again in this two-mile novice chase.

Ultima Handicap Chase

  • Most successful active trainers: David Pipe and Jonjo O’Neill (3 wins each)
  • Most successful owner: JP McManus (3 wins)
  • Most successful active jockey: Tom Scudamore (3 wins)
  • 2021: Vintage Clouds (28/1, Sue Smith, Ryan Mania)
  • 2020: The Conditional (15/2, David Bridgwater, Brendan Powell Jr)
  • 2019: Beware The Bear (10/1, Nicky Henderson, Jeremiah McGrath)
  • 2018: Coo Star Sivola (5/1F, Nick Williams, Lizzie Kelly)
  • 2017: Un Temps Pour Tout (9/1, David Pipe, Tom Scudamore)
  • 2016: Un Temps Pour Tout (11/1, David Pipe, Tom Scudamore)
  • 2015: The Druids Nephew (8/1, Neil Mulholland, Barry Geraghty)

A typical wide-open Festival handicap, the Ultima doesn’t have the most illustrious Cheltenham list of winners compared to other events on the opening day. The horses entered in this Grade 3 steeplechase may have other targets in the spring, including the Grand National at Aintree, so bear that in mind.

Champion Hurdle

  • Most successful trainer: Nicky Henderson (8 wins)
  • Most successful owner: JP McManus (9 wins)
  • 2021: Honeysuckle (11/10F, Henry De Bromhead, Rachael Blackmore)
  • 2020: Epatante (2/1F, Nicky Henderson, Barry Geraghty)
  • 2019: Espoir D’Allen (16/1, Gavin Cromwell, Mark Walsh)
  • 2018: Buveur D’Air(4/6F, Nicky Henderson, Barry Geraghty)
  • 2017: Buveur D’Air (5/1, Nicky Henderson, Noel Fehily)
  • 2016: Annie Power (5/2F, Willie Mullins, Ruby Walsh)
  • 2015: Faugheen (4/5F, Willie Mullins, Ruby Walsh)

Again, Henderson has the most Cheltenham past winners of the Champion Hurdle here. When he has a horse owned by JP McManus sent to his Seven Barrows stable, that combination can be deadly. It’s no surprise to see Mullins on the Cheltenham list of winners for this feature contest either, especially as he has four Champion Hurdle wins since 2011.

  • 2016: Vroum Vroum Mag (4/6F, Willie Mullins, Ruby Walsh)
  • 2015: Glens Melody (6/1, Willie Mullins, Paul Townend)

Mullins is once again the man for the Mares’ Hurdle. He has nine victories in the race courtesy of four different horses. This stable is in pole position for the Cheltenham winner 2021 again this year too. There is just something about Mullins training mares better than anyone else in the game.

Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle

  • 2021: Jeff Kidder (80/1, Noel Meade, Sean Flanagan)

  • 2016: Diego Du Charmil (13/2, Paul Nicholls, Sam Twiston-Davies)
  • 2015: Qualando (25/1, Paul Nicholls, Nick Schofield)

A big-field handicap hurdle for four-year-olds best known and registered as the Fred Winter, the current Cheltenham list of winners for this event includes a different jockey for each running. Introduced at the Festival in 2005, it is an alternative race for juveniles to the Triumph Hurdle. Paul Nicholls has been the trainer to follow with three wins since 2010.

National Hunt Chase

  • Most successful active trainer: Jonjo O’Neill (6 wins)
  • 2021: Galvin (7/2, Ian Ferguson, Jack Kennedy)
  • 2020: Ravenhill (12/1, Gordon Elliott, Jamie Codd)
  • 2019: Le Breuil (14/1, Ben Pauling, Jamie Codd)
  • 2018: Rathvinden(9/2, Willie Mullins, Patrick Mullins)
  • 2017: Tiger Roll (16/1, Gordon Elliott, Lisa O’Neill)
  • 2016: Minella Rocco (8/1, Jonjo O’Neill, Derek O’Connor)
  • 2015: Cause Of Causes (8/1, Gordon Elliott, Jamie Codd)

There are many Cheltenham past winners for this historic race. The National Hunt Chase for novices over fences is one of the oldest jumps races in the British Isles. Usually contested by amateur jockeys, anything saddled by Jonjo O’Neill commands respect in this major test of equine stamina.

Cheltenham Past Winners – Ladies Day

Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle

  • Most successful trainer: Willie Mullins (4 wins)
  • 2021: Bob Olinger (6/4F, Henry De Bromhead, Rachael Blackmore)

  • 2016: Yorkhill (3/1, Willie Mullins, Ruby Walsh)
  • 2015: Windsor Park (9/2, Dermot Weld, Davy Russell)

Registered as the Baring Bingham Novices’ Hurdle, the Ballymore opens Ladies Day at the Festival. Mullins is the go-to man once again with four previous victories in the race. He will be looking for another Cheltenham winner 2021 in the event this year too no doubt that extends that record.

  • 2016: Blaklion (8/1, Nigel Twiston-Davies, Ryan Hatch)
  • 2015: Don Poli (13/8F, Willie Mullins, Bryan Cooper)

Best known as the RSA Chase and registered as the Broadway Novices’ Chase, this Grade 1 event over three miles is for budding Cheltenham Gold Cup horses of the future. British trained horses have a good recent record in this staying novice contest. Usual suspects Henderson and Mullins feature prominently on the Cheltenham list of winners for it.

Coral Cup Handicap Hurdle

    • Most successful owner: JP McManus (3 wins)
    • 2021: Heaven Help Us (33/1, Paul Hennessy, Richie Condon)

  • 2015: Aux Ptits Soins (9/1, Paul Nicholls, Sam Twiston-Davies)

Introduced to the Festival in 1993, the Coral Cup is one of the big Grade 3 handicaps at the meeting. The Cheltenham winner 2021 could come from the Henderson stable, which has sent out the race four times before.

Queen Mother Champion Chase

  • Most successful active trainers: Nicky Henderson and Paul Nicholls (6 wins each)
  • Most successful active owner: John Hales (3 wins)
  • 2021: Put The Kettle On (17/2, Henry De Bromhead, Aidan Coleman)

  • 2016: Sprinter Sacre (5/1, Nicky Henderson, Nico de Boinville)
  • 2015: Dodging Bullets (9/2, Paul Nicholls, Sam Twiston-Davies)

Henderson and jockey Nico de Boinville have been a great combination in recent years with three wins in the Cheltenham list of winners for the Ladies Day feature, the Queen Mother Champion Chase since 2016. Any runners saddled by Nicholls also command respect in this big two-mile championship steeplechase.

Cross Country Chase

  • Most successful trainer: Enda Bolger (5 wins)
  • Most successful owner: JP McManus (7 wins)

  • 2016: Josies Orders (15/8F, Enda Bolger, Nina Carberry)
  • 2015: Rivage D’Or (16/1, Tony Martin, Davy Russell)

Leading Irish owner McManus loves having runners over the Cross Country course at the Festival. He has a record seven Cheltenham past winners in this event. Irish trainer Enda Bolger is regarded as a specialist handler for Cross Country, so anything saddled by him is worth looking at.

  • 2015: Next Sensation (16/1, Michael Scudamore, Tom Scudamore)

Run since 1834, the Grand Annual Handicap Chase is another of the historic races run at the Festival. Familiar names Nicholls and McManus are trainers and owners to follow here. Whether the Cheltenham winner 2021 comes from those connections is something you’ll have to see.

Champion Bumper

  • Most successful trainer: Willie Mullins (11 wins)
  • Most successful active owners: Cheveley Park Stud (2 wins)
  • 2021 Sir Gerhard (85/40, Willie Mullins, Rachael Blackmore)

  • 2015: Moon Racer (9/2F, David Pipe, Tom Scudamore)

A massive 10 Cheltenham past winners for Willie Mullins in the Champion Bumper means he’s the master of saddling horses for this Grade 1 National Hunt Flat race. Four of those have come since 2012, so it’s consistent success for the Closutton trainer.

Cheltenham List of Winners – St Patrick’s Thursday

Marsh Novices’ Chase

  • Most successful trainer: Willie Mullins (4 wins)
  • Most successful owners: Gigginstown House Stud (3 wins)
  • 2021: Chantry House (9/1, Nicky Henderson, Nico de Boinville)

  • 2016: Black Hercules (4/1CF, Willie Mullins, Ruby Walsh)
  • 2015: Vautour (6/4F, Willie Mullins, Ruby Walsh)

Registered as the Golden Miller Novices’ Chase, the Irish have really dominated among Cheltenham past winners in this race. Some of the big connections of National Hunt horse racing feature on the roll of honour since this event was introduced to the Festival in 2011.

Pertemps Final Handicap Hurdle

  • Most successful trainer: Jonjo O’Neill (4 wins)
  • Most successful owner: JP McManus (4 wins)
  • 2021: Mrs Milner (12/1, Paul Nolan, Bryan Cooper)

  • 2015: Call The Cops (9/1, Nicky Henderson, Andrew Tinkler)

As the end of a series of staying handicap hurdles, the Pertemps Final is one race where you might find getting the Cheltenham winner 2021 tricky. This is fiendishly difficult for bettors, because horses don’t have to win qualifiers, but just run into a place and can still get into the field.

Ryanair Chase

  • Most successful trainers: Willie Mullins (4 wins)
  • Most successful owners: Trevor Hemmings and Rich and Susannah Ricci (2 wins each)
  • 2021: Allaho (3/1, Willie Mullins, Rachael Blackmore)
  • 2020: Min (2/1, Willie Mullins, Paul Townend)
  • 2019: Frodon (9/2, Paul Nicholls, Bryony Frost)
  • 2018: Balko Des Flos(8/1, Henry De Bromhead, Davy Russell)
  • 2017: Un De Sceaux (7/4F, Willie Mullins, Ruby Walsh)
  • 2016: Vautour (1/1F, Willie Mullins, Ruby Walsh)
  • 2015: Uxizandre (16/1, Alan King, Tony McCoy)

Mullins has recorded plenty of recent success among the Cheltenham list of winners for the Ryanair Chase. Since he stopped training horses for Gigginstown House Stud, who have links with the race sponsors, he has really upped his game. Anything saddled by Nicholls is also well worth taking seriously in this event which is registered as the Festival Trophy.

Stayers’ Hurdle

  • Most successful active trainer: Paul Nicholls (4 wins)
  • Most successful owners: Andy Stewart and Andrea and Graham Wylie (4 wins each)
  • 2021: Flooring Porter (12/1, Gavin Cromwell, Danny Mullins)
  • 2020: Lisnagar Oscar (50/1, Rebecca Curtis, Adam Wedge)
  • 2019: Paisley Park (11/8F, Emma Lavelle, Aidan Coleman)
  • 2018: Penhill(12/1, Willie Mullins, Paul Townend)
  • 2017: Nichols Canyon (10/1, Willie Mullins, Ruby Walsh)
  • 2016: Thistlecrack (1/1F, Colin Tizzard, Tom Scudamore)
  • 2015: Cole Harden (14/1, Warren Greatrex, Gavin Sheehan)

Nicholls had legendary staying hurdler Big Buck’s make this race his own, and he features on the Cheltenham list of winners a record four times here. Female trainers have done well with their horses in this in recent years, while traditionally the Irish don’t have the best record in the event.

Paddy Power Plate Handicap Chase

  • Most successful active trainer: Nicky Henderson (4 wins)
  • 2021: The Shunter (9/4F, Emmet Mullins, Jordan Gainford)
  • 2020: Simply The Betts (100/30F, Harry Whittington, Gavin Sheehan)
  • 2019: Siruh Du Lac (9/2, Nick Williams, Lizzie Kelly)
  • 2018: The Storyteller(5/1F, Gordon Elliott, Davy Russell)
  • 2017: Road To Respect (14/1, Noel Meade, Bryan Cooper)
  • 2016: Empire Of Dirt (16/1, Colm Murphy, Bryan Cooper)
  • 2015: Darna (33/1, Kim Bailey, David Bass)

Another graded Festival handicap, this was originally known as the Mildmay of Flete Challenge Cup. It has many sponsors down the years and only two Cheltenham past winners have been successful more than once in it.

Parnell Properties Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle

  • Most successful trainer: Willie Mullins (5 wins)
  • Most successful owners: Sullivan Bloodstock and Rich and Susannah Ricci (2 wins each)
  • 2021: Telmesomethinggirl (5/1, Henry De Bromhead, Rachael Blackmore)
  • 2020: Concertista (9/2, Willie Mullins, Daryl Jacob)
  • 2019: Eglantine Du Seuil (50/1, Willie Mullins, Noel Fehily)
  • 2018: Laurina(4/7F, Willie Mullins, Paul Townend)
  • 2017: Let’s Dance (11/8F, Willie Mullins, Ruby Walsh)
  • 2016: Limini (8/11F, Willie Mullins, Ruby Walsh)

It’s Mullins who has dominated this race registered as the Dawn Run Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle that was introduced to the Festival in 2016. The Cheltenham winner 2021 will more than likely come from his stable once again, as he always targets the race with types of great potential, plus unexposed dark horses.

Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup

  • Most successful active trainer: Nicky Henderson (3 wins)
  • Most successful owners: Trevor Hemmings and JP McManus (3 wins each)
  • Most successful jockey: Jamie Codd (4 wins)
  • 2021: Mount Ida (3/1F, Denise Foster, Jack Kennedy)
  • 2020: Milan Native (9/1, Gordon Elliott, Rob James)
  • 2019: Any Second Now (6/1, Ted Walsh, Derek O’Connor)
  • 2018: Missed Approach(8/1, Warren Greatrex, Noel McParlan)
  • 2017: Domesday Book (40/1, Stuart Edmunds, Gina Andrews)
  • 2016: Cause Of Causes (9/2, Gordon Elliott, Jamie Codd)
  • 2015: The Package (9/1, David Pipe, Jamie Codd)

Usually a staying handicap chase for amateur jockeys, the Cheltenham list of winners for this event includes notable successes for Jamie Codd in the saddle. Powerful connections of the National Hunt game are once again well-represented on the Kim Muir honour roll, but it’s sometimes tough for bettors to pick out the winner.

Cheltenham Past Winners – Gold Cup Day

Triumph Hurdle

  • Most successful trainer: Nicky Henderson (7 wins)
  • Most successful active owners: Simon Munir and Isaac Souede, Gigginstown House Stud and JP McManus (2 wins each)
  • 2021: Quilixios (2/1, Henry De Bromhead, Rachael Blackmore)
  • 2020: Burning Victory (12/1, Willie Mullins, Paul Townend)
  • 2019: Pentland Hills (20/1, Nicky Henderson, Nico de Boinville)
  • 2018: Farclas(9/1, Gordon Elliott, Jack Kennedy)
  • 2017: Defi Du Seuil (5/2F, Philip Hobbs, Richard Johnson)
  • 2016: Ivanovich Gorbatov (9/2F, Aidan O’Brien, Barry Geraghty)
  • 2015: Peace And Co (2/1F, Nicky Henderson, Barry Geraghty)

As the big race for juvenile hurdlers in the British National Hunt calendar, picking the Cheltenham winner 2021 of the Triumph has been surprisingly difficult for bettors. This is because young jumps horses mature at different rates in their careers. Henderson has had most success as a trainer in this event.

County Handicap Hurdle

  • Most successful active trainers: Paul Nicholls and Willie Mullins (4 wins each)
  • Most successful active owner: JP McManus (3 wins)
  • 2021: Belfast Banter (33/1, Peter Fahey, Kevin Sexton)
  • 2020: Saint Roi (11/2F, Willie Mullins, Barry Geraghty)
  • 2019: Ch’tibello (12/1, Dan Skelton, Harry Skelton)
  • 2018: Mohaayed(33/1, Dan Skelton, Bridget Andrews)
  • 2017: Arctic Fire (20/1, Willie Mullins, Paul Townend)
  • 2016: Superb Story (8/1, Dan Skelton, Harry Skelton)
  • 2015: Wicklow Brave (25/1, Willie Mullins, Paul Townend)

Cheltenham past winners of the County Hurdle on Gold Cup day in recent years have either represented the Dan Skelton or Mullins stables. Both yards seem to target this Festival race, so it’s worth looking at what is entered from those yards. Both Paul Townend and Harry Skelton will have the choice of rides for their stable every year.

Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle

  • Most successful trainers: Jonjo O’Neill and Willie Mullins (2 wins each)
  • Most successful owners: Gigginstown House Stud and JP McManus (2 wins each)
  • 2021: Vanillier (14/1, Gavin Cromwell, Mark Walsh)
  • 2020: Monkfish (5/1, Willie Mullins, Paul Townend)
  • 2019: Minella Indo (50/1, Henry De Bromhead, Rachael Blackmore)
  • 2018: Kilbricken Storm(33/1, Colin Tizzard, Harry Cobden)
  • 2017: Penhill (16/1, Willie Mullins, Paul Townend)
  • 2016: Unowhatimeanharry (11/1, Harry Fry, Noel Fehily)
  • 2015: Martello Tower (14/1, Maggie Mullins, Adrian Heskin)

With two victories in the race registered as the Spa Novices’ Hurdle in recent years, Mullins is among Cheltenham past winners yet again! Stamina is required for this race and it can throw up future Stayers’ Hurdle and long-distance chasers, so it’s well worth following the event closely with the future in mind.

There are trends you can follow, but stats sometimes go out of the window in this Festival feature. It goes without saying of course, the Cheltenham list of winners of this event reads like a who’s who of great racehorses.
