Thyestes Handicap Chase Betting

The Thyestes Handicap Chase is an important betting opportunity in the national hunt calendar as it can often provide plenty of pointers to some of the bigger handicap races later in the season - including the Aintree Grand National and Irish Grand National.

The Thyestes takes place each year at Gowran Park in late January, with horses taking on the three mile trip and sixteen fences. Due to the timing of the race the ground over in Ireland can often be very testing and past winners have often had to complete the three miles on soft to heavy ground.

The value of the Thyestes in providing ante-post betting clues for the National is highlighted by the fact that Hedgehunter won both races when he took the Thyestes in 2004 and followed up with the National in 2005, while Numbersixvalverde won both races in 2005 before going on to add the Irish National to his impressive tally in 2006.
