Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir 2020 Racecard

This National Hunt Chase is named after two people. Firstly it bore the name of Kim Muir, a cavalry officer who died during World War II, and then in 1991 Fulke Walwyn, was added to the name in honour of his achievements as a trainer, which included 40 winners at the Cheltenham Festival.

1
jockey silks 1. LE MUSEE (FR)
J: Mr Kieren Buckley
T: Nigel Hawke
7
11-12
Laboured display when last seen over fences and, while he's won on the Flat since, his last couple of efforts in that sphere have been pretty uninspiring. Hard to warm to.
11 stars

2
jockey silks 2. LE BREUIL (FR)
J: Mr J. J. Codd
T: Ben Pauling
8
11-12
Excellent first season over fences, culminating in NH Chase victory here 12 months ago. Hasn't shaped at all badly in Becher/Classic Chase this term and claims on the way to a tilt at the National.
44 stars

3
jockey silks 3. CABARET QUEEN
J: Mr M. J. O'Hare
T: W. P. Mullins, Ireland
8
11-12
Easy Munster National winner in October but found out from inflated mark in Ladbrokes Trophy on these shores next time and down the field over hurdles latest.
33 stars

4
jockey silks 4. THE YOUNG MASTER
J: Mr Sam Waley-Cohen
T: Neil Mulholland
11
11-11
Course winner who ended last season in top form but, having had a spin on the Flat, didn't offer any encouragement at Wincanton on return. Hard to fancy.
22 stars

5
jockey silks 5. FLYING ANGEL (IRE)
J: Mr Zac Baker
T: Nigel Twiston-Davies
9
11-11
Ended a losing run at Ascot in November and, while he's not really backed that up, it's worth noting that he's run well in a couple of Festival handicaps in the past, so not totally ruled out.
33 stars

6
jockey silks 6. DEISE ABA (IRE)
J: Mr William Biddick
T: Philip Hobbs
7
11-9
Upwardly mobile 7-y-o who arrives having posted a career-best to land Masters Handicap (3m) at Sandown last month, jumping soundly. Likely to progress further and makes plenty of appeal up in trip.
55 stars

7
jockey silks 7. FITZHENRY (IRE)
J: Mr P. W. Mullins
T: Paul Nolan, Ireland
8
11-9
Winless this season but has posted several good placed efforts, runner-up in Paddy Power at Leopardstown over Christmas. Run best ignored when badly hampered there last time and holds each-way claims.
44 stars

8
jockey silks 8. GO ANOTHER ONE (IRE)
J: Mr J. C. Barry
T: John McConnell, Ireland
8
11-9
Made it 2 from 2 over fences at Worcester in September before a pair of underwhelming efforts in slightly better company. Not seen for 4 months and handicapper has taken no chances with his mark.
33 stars

9
jockey silks 9. THE KINGS WRIT (IRE)
J: Mr Joshua Newman
T: Kayley Woollacott
9
11-8
Both wins under Rules gained at Exeter, the latest over 19f in December 2018. Good second under this rider the last twice, so could put up another bold showing for all his mark has edged up further.
33 stars

10
jockey silks 10. AMI DESBOIS (FR)
J: Miss Lilly Pinchin
T: Graeme McPherson
10
11-8
Twice runner-up in staying handicap chases this season but struggled at Sandown (race won by Deise Aba) last time and has blinkers added to usual tongue tie now. Hard to fancy.
22 stars

11
jockey silks 11. MILAN NATIVE (IRE)
J: Mr R. James
T: Gordon Elliott, Ireland
7
11-8
Maiden hurdle winner (2m) who has shown plenty in defeat over fences, hitting the frame on 3 of his last 4 starts in maiden events. Longer trip may eke out improvement now handicapping.
44 stars

12
jockey silks 12. BOB MAHLER (IRE)
J: Mr N. McParlan
T: Warren Greatrex
8
11-7
Dual chase winner last spring (including at this venue) who got back to winning ways in Edinburgh National (32.8f) at Musselburgh 6 weeks ago. Up 5 lb but fitting of sterner headgear is a good move.
33 stars

13
jockey silks 13. MILITARIAN
J: Mr James Martin
T: Andrew Martin
10
11-7
Sprang a surprise (50/1) when making a winning return in 3m Ascot handicap but has found revised marks beyond him since. Has had a wind operation since last run here.
11 stars

14
jockey silks 14. ARDLETHEN (IRE)
J: Miss Gina Andrews
T: Dan Skelton
7
11-7
Useful form over hurdles last term. Successful on return/chase debut at Chepstow (23.6f) and not largely not disgraced in face of sterner assignments since. Switch to handicaps rates a positive.
44 stars

15
jockey silks 15. PLAN OF ATTACK (IRE)
J: Mr B. O'Neill
T: Henry de Bromhead, Ireland
7
11-7
Outpointed The Hollow Ginge at Aintree (25f) in October and ran a cracker to finish third in big-field Leopardstown handicap (3m) over Christmas. Promises to be suited by demands of this race. Claims.
44 stars

16
jockey silks 16. FINGERONTHESWITCH (IRE)
J: Miss Millie Wonnacott
T: Neil Mulholland
10
11-6
Consistent veteran who is better than ever at present, 10-length winner at Kempton before clear second at Doncaster off 10 lb higher mark. Up another 7 lb here but still one for the shortlist.
33 stars

17
jockey silks 17. LIKE THE SOUND (FR)
J: Mr James King
T: Charlie Mann
9
11-5
Useful form when landing 2 staying handicap chases last term and right back on song when third over C&D in January. Tame effort last time, however, so bit to prove.
11 stars

18
jockey silks 18. KILFILUM CROSS (IRE)
J: Mr Alex Edwards
T: Henry Oliver
9
11-5
Mixed bag this term, yet his latest Kempton second in this headgear behind a big improver signalled a return to form and he could be set for a big run having been second last year under this rider.
33 stars

19
jockey silks 19. CHAMPAGNE PLATINUM (IRE)
J: Mr D. O'Connor
T: Nicky Henderson
6
11-5
Dual hurdles winner last season who hasn't looked wholly convincing over fences this term for all he wasn't disgraced in the Scilly Isles last time. Upped markedly in trip with cheekpieces fitted.
33 stars

20
jockey silks 20. THOMAS PATRICK (IRE)
J: Mr Tommie M. O'Brien
T: Tom Lacey
8
11-4
Disappointing after his reappearance last season and offered no encouragement when pulled up at Haydock on return. Hard to make a case for even with first-time cheekpieces applied.
22 stars

21
jockey silks 21. COUP DE PINCEAU (FR)
J: Mr Angus Cheleda
T: Paul Nicholls
8
11-4
Winner of first 2 starts over fences and remains with potential after a promising return at Wincanton over staying trip in October after a wind op.
33 stars

22
jockey silks 22. CLOTH CAP (IRE)
J: Mr R. Deegan
T: Jonjo O'Neill
8
11-4
Useful chaser who arrives on the back of a string of good efforts and has experience of a big-field scenario (third in last year's Scottish Grand National), so could mount a challenge.
33 stars

23
jockey silks 23. JUST A STING (IRE)
J: Mr Michael Legg
T: Harry Fry
8
11-3
Made up into a useful staying chaser last season and back to his best with reappearance behind him when shading tight finish at Kempton in December. Fell early there last time, though.
22 stars

24
jockey silks 24. ONE STYLE (FR)
J: Miss Lucy Turner
T: Venetia Williams
10
11-2
On a roll, completing 5-timer at Ludlow (23.8f) last month with a fine front-running display under this pilot. Type to do better again, particularly if the mud is flying.
33 stars

Analyst's Verdict

DEISE ABA is improving rapidly and likely has even more to offer over this sort of trip. If he handles this big-field scenario then he seems sure to go well and he's taken to come out on top. Plan of Attack is also firmly on the up and still appears well treated, so he's feared most ahead of Fitzhenry.

The Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Handicap Chase takes place on the third day of the Festival and is for amateur riders. The riders compete on the New Course at Cheltenham, over a distance of about three miles and one and a half furlongs – with a total of nineteen fences jumped.

The event was established in 1946 and it was originally called the Kim Muir Amateur Riders' Steeplechase. It was introduced by Mrs Evan Williams and was named in memory of her brother, Kim Muir, a cavalry officer who lost his life during World War II.

The name of Fulke Walwyn was added to the title in 1991. This was in honour of the highly successful trainer, whose 211 victories at Cheltenham included 40 at the Festival.

There are two horses who have won this race twice – Chu-Teh (1967, 1968) and Glyde Court (1985, 1986).

The most successful jockey in the Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup is  Jamie Codd  who won on  Character Building  (2009),  Junior  (2011),  The Package  (2015) and  Cause of Causes  (2016).

We have to look back further to find the winning trainer – Fred Rimell, who took his first victory in 1951 – won this race a total of four times. Mighty Fine (1951), Gay Monarch II (1955), Nicolaus Silver (1961), and Double Negative (1977).
