Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir 2021 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.

4:50 Thu 18 Mar FULKE WALWYN KIM MUIR

Distance: 26f 0y Age: 5yo + Prize: £52,500 Going: Gd/Sft

Analyst's Verdict

A wide-open affair with the vote in favour of MOUNT IDA. A Grade 3 winner over an extended 2m at Cork, she lost little caste in defeat behind Colreevy in a Grade 2 thereafter and this longer trip may unlock improvement now handicapping. Deise Aba also arrives in good form and is feared along with Hold The Note, Plan of Attack and Morning Vicar.

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).
