Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup

The Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup is a steeplechase for amateur riders. The race is the final event on day three of the Cheltenham Festival and can be entered by horses aged five years or older. The handicap race is run on Cheltenham’s New Course and runners must jump 19 fences.

The Kim Muir Challenge Cup is always a difficult race to bet on. When selecting a horse for this race it is advised that you ensure the horse can stay the 3m 1 1/2f trip. Stamina and poor jumping can often let horses down in this race with many messing up on some of the nineteen fences.
