Cheltenham 2022 Day 2 Schedule

Day 2 (Wednesday) March, 16

13:30 – Ballymore Novices Hurdle →

14:10 – RSA Steeple Chase →

14:50 – Coral Cup Handicap Hurdle →

15:30 – Queen Mother Champion Chase →

16:10 – Cross Country Steeple Chase →

16:50 – The Johnny Henderson Grand Annual Handicap Steeple Chase Challenge Cup →

17:30 – Weatherby’s Champion Bumper →

With the thrills and excitement of the opening day still very fresh in the memory, the exhilaration simply doesn’t stop as March 16th means Cheltenham Festival Ladies Day.

Wednesday brings with it another seven races, another £1million in prize money and no doubt a plethora of Cheltenham day 2 tips for punters to get stuck into with, usually by this stage, either the punters or the bookies chasing some heavy losses – hopefully the latter.

The biggest race on Wednesday is undoubtedly the Queen Mother Champion Chase, the premier two-mile event for steeplechasers in Britain and Ireland and it is backed up on the card chiefly by the RSA Chase, a novice event often featuring those who will be back in a year’s time to contest the Gold Cup itself on Friday.  Queen Mother Champion Chase is sure to be another brilliant run following the epic encounter in it at last year’s Cheltenham.  This race itself is why the day has since been coined as ‘Ladies Day’ – similarly to the Ascot Finale Day.

Before you get your money on any horse during Cheltenham Festival Ladies Day, it is always recommended to not only check what offers are available to you, but, also the Cheltenham 2022 day 2 declarations. Don’t waste money on horses that aren’t running, and, find our selection of the best betting offers below:

Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle 2022 – 13:30

About Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle

The race, and the day, start at 13.30 so there is plenty of time to start your betting on Cheltenham day 2 early!

Cheltenham day 2 comes out of the gates with the Ballymore Novice’s Hurdle, this Grade 1 race is run over 2miles and 5 furlong by horses 4 years plus. Over that distance there are ten hurdles to navigate over the run, but, it is always a great start to get the Cheltenham 2022 day 2 card underway.

Just as day one begins with a top novices’ hurdle for those aged four and over across two miles, Wednesday starts the same way except that the Ballymore Novices’ takes place over the longer trip of two miles, five furlongs and features ten flights of hurdles.

Once more this race is a Grade 1 event, worth £125,000, and will feature some of the best future staying hurdlers or chasers. It has been on the card since 1971 and has been taken in the past by such great names as Istabraq, Faugheen and Samcro showing that it takes a real good one to get the job done.

While he may yet go for the Champion Hurdle or Supreme Novices’ if connections think he’s good enough and/or he wants a shorter distance, the current ante post favourite is the very exciting Envoi Allen but the likes of Andy Dufresne and Thyme Hill are not far behind and all are top quality.

Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle 2022 Ante-post Betting Tips

7-1 Sir Gerhard, 8-1 Journey With Me, Stage Star, 9-1 Dysart Dynamo, 12-1 Constitution Hill, 14-1 Mighty Potter, 16-1 Classic Getaway

Dysart Dynamo has been the horse for money in the early exchanges, a son of Westerner trained by Willie Mullins. He is yet to be extended in three races under rules, winning bumpers at Clonmel and Punchestown and a maiden hurdle at Cork. He is trading at around 9-1, two points longer than Champion Bumper winner Sir Gerhard who cruised to victory on his hurdling debut at Leopardstown.

Constitution Hill is currently quoted as short as 4-1 for the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle. He is trained by Nicky Henderson who also trains Supreme favourite Jonbon so it is not inconceivable that Constitution Hill could be re-routed to the longer Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle.

Journey With Me represents the same team responsible for Bob Olinger in 2021 and created a big impression with an effortless win at Gowran Park in March. He then lowered the colours of Kilcruit at Leopardstown and looks in the mould of last year’s winner.

TIP: JOURNEY WITH ME looks the ideal type for this race and is guaranteed to stay the trip. Sir Gerhard was very impressive on his first run over hurdles and would be feared most if running here in preference to the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle on Cheltenham Day 1.

2021 Winner – Bob Olinger (Henry de Bromhead) Rachael Blackmore

Cheltenham Festival day 2 followed the trend set on day 1 as the Irish dominated. 6-4 favourite Bob Olinger comfortably beat the Willie Mullins-trained Gaillard Du Mesnil (9-4) for an Irish 1-2 in the Ballymore. Bravemansgame (4-1) did best of the home team to finish third but was easily brushed aside and Trainer Paul Nicholls was immediately looking forward to sending him over fences.

Bob Olinger had beaten Blue Lord by 6 ½ lengths at Naas last time and that horse would have finished second in the Supreme but for falling at the last. Rachael Blackmore never had an anxious moment on the imposing son of Sholokhov who is already being spoken of as a future Cheltenham Gold Cup winner. Gaillard Du Mesnil landed the odds in a Grade 1 at Punchestown next time before also embarking on a career over the larger obstacles.

The Brown Advisory Novices’ Steeple Chase 2022 – 14:10

Following on from the Ballymore Novice’s Hurdle, RSA Chase is ran at 14.10.

Known as a stern test for novice chasers, this 3 mile ½ furlong run is for horses aged 5, and older, in this Grade 1 field of runners. With a whopping 19 fences to jump, jockey and horse alike must work in tandem to make sure a small mistake doesn’t rule them out in this unforgiving race.

Known simply as the RSA or the RSA Chase, this novice event is a Grade 1 run over just a little more than three miles and as such it is seen as a very early trial for future Cheltenham Gold Cups and other top staying chases. The RSA features 20 fences, making it a gruelling task for these novices around the Old Course, and is open to those aged 5+.

This year’s event basically has second billing on the Cheltenham races Wednesday card given its importance on the schedule, and is due to carry a prize fund of £175,000. The excellent Champ currently holds favouritism in the early betting market for 2020.

The RSA has been run since 1946 under different names and has real historical significance, winners in the past including future Gold Cup and Grand National winners such as Miinnehoma, Looks Like Trouble and Denman.

The Brown Advisory Novices’ Steeple Chase 2022 Ante-post Betting Tips

11-4 Galopin Des Champs, 4-1 Bravemansgame, 10-1 Ahoy Senor, 14-1 Beacon Edge, Vanillier

Bravemansgame established himself as the leading staying novice in Great Britain with an emphatic victory over Ahoy Senor at Kempton Park on Boxing Day. Paul Nicholls has always rated him very highly and he has looked a natural since switching from hurdles to fences. Ahoy Senor beat him over hurdles at Aintree last season but was not as slick over his fences at Kempton and had no answer to Bravemansgame in the home straight.

Nicholls was reluctant to commit the horse to Cheltenham as he is not a fan of giving a young horse a hard race in the three-miler. The owners remain keen so his participation hangs in the balance. The market was turned on its head by the hugely impressive debut chasing win of Galopin Des Champs at Leopardstown after Christmas. Already a festival winner over hurdles, he could emerge as a future Gold Cup horse if successful on Cheltenham festival 2022 day 2.

TIP: GALOPIN DES CHAMPS has to be the early selection after his brilliant chasing debut. With lingering doubts over the participation of Bravemansgame, he could start a very short price on the day.

2021 Winner – Monkfish (Willie Mullins) Paul Townend

Opposition to Monkfish completely evaporated in the Festival Novices’ Chase, leaving him to go off the unopposed 1-4 favourite. There would have been plenty of punters holding Cheltenham ante-post betting tickets on the favourite and he gave them an anxious moment when blundering at the last. Paul Townend soon had him back on an even keel and he drew right away to beat 40-1 shot Fiddlerontheroof by 6 ½ lengths.

With Eklat De Rire and Sporting John departing, it left only four finishers in a disappointing renewal. Monkfish did not impress everyone that day, despite winning his seventh consecutive race, and was subsequently beaten by stable companion Colreevy at Punchestown. Unfortunately the gelding has been forced to miss the whole of the 2021-22 National Hunt season with a tendon injury.

The Coral Cup Hurdle 2022 – 14:50

The first of the handicap races on Cheltenham Wednesday is the Grade 3 Coral Cup which is the second of this hour, at 14.50.

Run over the distance of 2 miles 5 furlong, with 10 fences to hurdle over the horses, aged four and over, must be at their best to stand a chance of winning this prestigious race. Interestingly, no horse has ever won this outing in consecutive years.

The Coral Cup being what it is, it’s simply anyone’s guess at present who may turn up but given that it is one of the biggest betting races in the UK, you can guarantee that Cheltenham 2022 tips for day 2 will be rife around this event.

A Grade 3 handicap hurdle race run over 2 miles and 5 furlongs, the Coral Cup is severely competitive and can feature all hurdlers aged four and over. While it is worth £100,000 on its own, the race often features a bonus for any horse who can win the Imperial Cup at Sandown the previous weekend before going on to take this race.

Despite having to cover 2m5f and ten hurdles, the Coral Cup is usually a bona fide cavalry charge with the pace frenetic from the very beginning, something that makes it what it is in terms of its popularity with punters.

Often famous for huge public gambles reducing the prices of runners as the layers run scared, the Coral Cup has been landed before by the likes of What’s Up Boys, Monkerhostin and last year by William Henry.

The Coral Cup 2022 Ante-post Betting Update

Ante-post betting on the Coral Cup does not open until the entries are known.

2021 Winner – Heaven Help Us (Paul Hennessy) Richard Condon

The most competitive race on Cheltenham day 2 is the Coral Cup over two miles and five furlongs. The Irish dominance continued when Richard Condon pushed out the front-running Heaven Help Us for a 33-1 success. Their task was made easier by the last flight fall of Blue Sari and the mare was left to come home 9 lengths clear of Nicky Henderson’s Craigneiche (17-2). Outsiders Tea Clipper (33-1) and Sayo (28-1) filled the remaining places.

Plenty of Cheltenham day 2 tips featured the well-backed Grand Roi and Guard Your Dreams but neither landed a blow and they finished only 12th and 7th respectively. Heaven Help Us had reverted to hurdles with a win at Leopardstown in February and defied a 12lbs rise in the weights at Cheltenham.

The Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase 2022 – 15:30

It is a highlight of the medium distance National Hunt racing calendar and was given its name in honour of recognising the Queen Mothers 80th birthday, along with her huge support of jump racing. As one of the highlights of the jump racing schedule, it is a befitting name.

The last eight years have seen four Nicky Henderson horses run to victory, so if you’re looking for a wise pick in this one, keep an eye on the Cheltenham Wednesday runners declared in this one!

It’s the jewel in the crown of Cheltenham Ladies Day, the Queen Mother Champion Chase at 15:30!

Open to horses of five years, and older, this Grade 1 outing is the race not to be missed from Cheltenham Wednesday racecards! This Grade 1 outing is open to horses of five years old, and older, and is run over the distance of 1 mile 7 furlongs with twelve fences to clear.

While more money will be bet on the previous race, this one represents the true quality on show during Cheltenham races on Ladies Day 2020. Naturally a Grade 1 event, this two-mile chase is the biggest race of its type all season and as the name suggests, effectively crowns the champion minimum distance chaser for the year with the best of Britain and Ireland both taking part.

The Champion Chase is run on the Old Course with participants having to take thirteen fences. The 2022 renewal has a prize fund of some £400,000 and those aged five or older may run.

While such true racing greats as Crisp, One Man, Moscow Flyer, Sprinter Sacre and Altior have won this since its inception in 1959, there’s always room for a new name on the famous trophy so should Altior stick to longer trips this season, it could be the turn of one of the current market leaders such as Chacun Pour Soi or Defi Du Seuil to take up the mantle.

Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase 2022 Ante-post Betting Tips

5-4 Shishkin, 5-2 Energumene, 11-1 Greaneteen, 12-1 Chacun Pour Soi

The highlight of Cheltenham Ladies Day 2022 promises to be the Champion Chase clash between Shishkin and Energumene. Shiskhin (5-4) has won at the last two Cheltenham Festival meetings and is hot favourite to make it three in a row in March. Having won the Supreme in 2020 and the Arkle in 2021, his obvious target is the Queen Mother Champion Chase. His reappearance victory in the Desert Orchid Chase showed that he is the horse to beat and he looks like being a banker bet for Cheltenham Day 2 tips.

The big danger looks likely to be Energumene (5-2) who has replaced Chacun Pour Soi (12-1), disappointing in the Tingle Creek, as the pick of the Willie Mullins-trained runners. His record compares very favourably with Shishkin’s and this looks like being one of the duels of the season. Greaneteen (11-1) won the Tingle Creek but was firmly put in his place by Shishkin at Kempton and will be in the reckoning for a place.

TIP: SHISHKIN has a remarkable change of gear for a steeplechaser and looked as good as ever at Kempton over Christmas. Bookmakers were quick to slash his odds for the Queen Mother Champion Chase and he looks on course for a Cheltenham Festival hat-trick.

2021 Winner – Put The Kettle On (Henry de Bromhead) Aidan Coleman

The Queen Mother Champion Chase was expected to go to Ireland’s Chacun Pour Soi, trained by Willie Mullins. The home challenge had been weakened by the withdrawal of previous winners Altior and Politologue, leaving Chacun Pour Soi odds-on favourite at 8-13. After travelling strongly in behind the leaders, the nine-year-old led approaching the last but could not shrug off the persistent challenge of Put The Kettle On (17-2).

Henry de Bromhead’s remarkable Cheltenham Festival continued as the brave mare ran on gamely to beat Nube Negra (11-1) and Chacun Pour Soi by half a length and a length. Greaneteen finished close up in fourth with the ever-consistent Sceau Royal in fifth. Put The Kettle On had won the Arkle Challenge Trophy in 2020 and her Queen Mother victory was her fourth in as many visits. She finally suffered her first Cheltenham defeat behind Nube Negra in the Shloer Chase in November.

The Glenfarclas Cross Country Steeple Chase 2022 – 16:10

Run at 16:10, Cross Country Chase is the perfect race to have after the drama of the Queen Mothers Champion Chase!

Originally a handicap race, this was changed to a conditions race in 2016. Open to horses aged five, and older, this race is run on the cross-country course at Cheltenham over 3 miles and 6 furlongs with an enormous 32 obstacles to navigate.

Right now the winner of the last two renewals of both this race and the Grand National, Tiger Roll, remains favourite once again but with his participation in doubt we may be on the lookout for a new Cross Country champion.

Although open to those aged 5+ like most chases, this race is really in a category of its own. Not given graded status, the Cross Country is run over three miles, six furlongs and takes place in the middle of the tracks on the unique cross-country course. There are fully 32 natural obstacles for the runners to clear and its this that makes the race what it is – truly something different.

While it has the lowest prize fund of day two at just £65,000, the Cross Country Chase still attracts huge support and that will especially be the case should the great Tiger Roll make it back to Prestbury Park to try to defend his crown.

Cross Country Steeple Chase 2022 Ante-post Betting Tips

6-1 Easysland, 7-1 Tiger Roll, 10-1 Ajas, 12-1 Balco Des Flos, 14-1 Shady Operator

Tiger Roll has made this race his own in recent years, winning in 2018, 2019 and 2021. He was beaten by Easysland in 2020 and it is no surprise to see these two horses at the head of the ante-post market. It would be difficult to be confident about the participation of either in 2022 with both horses under a bit of a cloud.

Third favourite Ajas, denied a run last year because his owners were not allowed to attend, also failed to fire on his latest start. He was fancied for the Grand Steeple-Chase de Paris with Rachael Blackmore in the saddle but could finish only a remote seventh. Aintree Grand National runner-up Balko Des Flos would seem a likely contender for a race such as this but he has been well beaten on both starts over the cross country course this season.

TIP: SHADY OPERATOR won well at Punchestown in November and is trained by Enda Bolger, a specialist when it comes to these cross country races. He makes some appeal for Cheltenham day 2 tips at 14-1 in a race where the participation of several of the market leaders is in doubt.

2021 Winner – Tiger Roll (Denise Foster) Keith Donoghue

One of the most popular winners of the 2021 Cheltenham Festival was dual Grand National winner Tiger Roll (9-2). The remarkable gelding was winning his 13th race under rules and was appearing at the festival for the seventh time. His first Cheltenham win was the Triumph Hurdle in 2014 so it was no surprise to see him prove popular in the Cheltenham Wednesday betting.

Having been well beaten by Easysland in this race 12 months’ earlier and shown very little since, there was speculation that retirement might be looming for the eleven-year-old. He bounced back to his best here, reversing the form with even money favourite Easysland with an emphatic 18 lengths victory with Some Neck (17-2) in third place.

Tiger Roll did run at Aintree in 2021, contesting the Betway Bowl, but he ran a lifeless race behind Clan Des Obeaux. Easysland was also scratched from the Grand National, although his owner J.P.McManus went on to win the race with Minella Times, ridden by Rachael Blackmore.

The Johnny Henderson Grand Annual Chase 2022 – 16:50

Introduced in 2005 when the Festival became a four-day extravaganza, this event was named in honour of Fred Winter who was successful as both jockey and trainer at Cheltenham, with a rather decent record of 17 victories as a jockey and 28 as a trainer! The Grade 3 outing is run by horses aged four years, and over, over the distance of 2 miles and ½ furlong with just eight hurdles to be jumped.

The Johnny Henderson Grand Annual Chase 2022 Ante-Post Betting Update

Ante-post betting on the Johnny Henderson Grand Annual Chase does not open until the entries are known.

2021 Winner – Sky Pirate (Jonjo O’Neill) Nick Scholfield

The Johnny Henderson Grand Annual Chase provided a rare win for British-trained horses on Cheltenham day 2 when Sky Pirate (14-1) denied Entoucas (7-1) by a short-head. Sky Pirate had been in many notebooks for this race after wins at Cheltenham and Warwick earlier in the season. He had a bit of a reputation for not finding a great deal off the bridle but wind surgery seemed to galvanise the horse, his rating going from 132 in October 2020 to 159 a year later.

Entoucas from the Joseph O’Brien stable battled on right to the line with Ibleo (9-1) in third and On The Slopes (16-1) finishing fourth. The race saw a rare setback for Rachael Blackmore when falling at the ninth on strong-travelling favourite Embittered.

The Weatherbys Champion Bumper 2022 – 17:30

We wrap up the Cheltenham Wednesday at 17:30 with this Champion Bumper.

Run by horses between four and six years old, over 2 miles and ½ a furlong this Grade 1 race is the most prestigious flat race of the National Hunt calendar. Despite not having won here for five years, Ruby Walsh remains the leading jockey in this event.

Won last year by the aforementioned Envoi Allen, the Champion Bumper has been on the card since 1992 and while it is a Grade 1 race in its own right, it serves to offer a platform for future star hurdlers and chasers to make their mark at the festival before they have to jump a flight.

The race takes place over the two-mile trip, is open to those aged 4-6 only and carries a prize fund of £75,000. It has been won by future jumping stars Florida Pearl, Cue Card and Champagne Fever among others and this year we are going at least 14/1 the field at present, with competition naturally huge at this early stage.

2022 Ante-post Betting Update

3-1 American Mike, 4-1 Facile Vega, 8-1 Redemption Day, 12-1 Pink In The Park, 14-1 The Model Kingdom, The Big Doyen

The final race on Cheltenham Festival day 2 is the Champion Bumper over two miles. It is unusual for a horse to be trading as short as 3-1 favourite for this race before Christmas but that was the situation with American Mike. Gordon Elliott trains the four-year-old son of Mahler who has landed the odds at Down Royal and Navan.

Peter Fahey also has a nice sort on The Big Doyen, a fifteen lengths winner at Punchestown in November. The Willie Mullins-trained filly Pink In The Park entered the betting at 12-1 after a similarly impressive victory at Listowel in September. She is by Walk In The Park out of a winning Presenting mare. Mullins strengthened his hand when another Facile Vega, by the same sire, romped to a 6 lengths win at Leopardstown on Boxing Day. Perhaps the pick of the Mullins team could be Redemption Day who won hard held the following day to earn a quote of 8-1.

TIP: REDEMPTION DAY was never off the bridle on his racecourse debut at Leopardstown. Willie Mullins has a terrific record in this race and already has three prominent in the ante-post betting.

2021 Winner – Sir Gerhard (Willie Mullins) Rachael Blackmore

Blackmore’s supporters did not have to wait long for a return to winning ways on Cheltenham day 2 as she steered home Sir Gerhard in the Champion Bumper. The race was billed as a match between the unbeaten Sir Gerhard (85-40) and Kilcruit (10-11) and that is exactly how it panned out.

Blackmore went straight to the front with Paul Townend content to bide his time on Kilcruit. Townend urged his mount to close the gap at the two furlong marker but was never closer than at the finish, beaten half a length. Dan Skelton’s Elle Est Belle (16-1) stayed on into third. The winner carried the colours of Cheveley Park Stud who have enjoyed National Hunt success with the likes of Envoi Allen, Allaho and A Plus Tard. The form was reversed at Punchestown in April with Kilcruit coming out on top, although both horses remain exciting prospects over hurdles.

Betting On Cheltenham Day 2

Not only have we included our round up of the best offers for you above in our handy comparison table, but, one golden rule is to make sure you check the Cheltenham runners on Wednesday, there is nothing worse than doing he research, picking a horse, only to find out it hasn’t been declared.

Prior to that though, make sure you check out all the Cheltenham offers and our bookie comparisons to make sure you not only pick the right horse for Ladies Day, but, also the right bookmakers!

Cheltenham Day Two Trial Races

The Cheltenham runners on Wednesday will not have gotten to this point without winning major races, especially in the case of those contesting the Champion Chase for which events such as the Tingle Creek at Sandown and the John Durkan Memorial at Punchestown are key prep races.

Despite it being a novice event, those running in the RSA will likely have taken part in something like the Feltham Novices’ Chase at Kempton or the Scilly Isles Novices’ at Sandown beforehand to make sure they’re good enough, something no doubt acknowledged when we see Cheltenham Wednesday tips.

Bottom Line

It may be made out as something of a gimmick day due to the high-fashion and general wear of the crowd on the second day of the Festival – but – don’t let that distract you from the fact that there are seven brilliant races on the second day for you to get your money on – and – win more on with the Cheltenham races on Ladies Day.
