Triumph Hurdle 2021 Racecard

The Triumph Hurdle is a Grade 1 National Hunt hurdle race, which takes place each year during the Cheltenham Festival in March. It is currently scheduled to take place on the Friday – the fourth and final day of the Festival, also known as Gold Cup Day. Run on the New course, the Triumph Hurdle takes in a total of eight hurdles, over a distance of around two miles and one furlong.

1:20 Fri 19 Mar TRIUMPH HURDLE

Distance: 16f 179y Age: 4yo O Prize: £93,750 Going: Gd/Sft

Analyst's Verdict

A fascinating renewal, with half the field putting unbeaten records on the line. TRITONIC looked as good a juvenile as has been seen in Britain when bolting up in the Adonis at Kempton last month and gets the vote to improve further and strike for Alan King. Zanahiyr and Quilixios will provide some serious opposition however, and can chase the selection home in that order.

Found a chunk of improvement when winning Finale Juvenile Hurdle at Chepstow 10 weeks ago, following up his December C&D success from Historic Heart. Definite each-way claims.

Ran to a fairly useful level on his hurdling debut in October when winning a 17-runner newcomers’ race at Auteuil, and he has since joined powerful connections. Open to improvement so not discounted.

Has made excellent start over hurdles, landing juveniles at Sedgefield and Wetherby. Another good effort when second in Musselburgh listed race last time but making a big step up now. Visor on.

Improved model since undergoing wind surgery, completing hat-trick in listed company at Taunton in December. Ran below that level when runner-up at Doncaster and she's likely to struggle in this.

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).
