Ryanair Chase Winner Dynaste Set For Betfred Bowl At Aintree

Friday 21st March 2014

David Pipe has announced that his stable star, Dynaste, is on course for the Grand National Meeting at Aintree next month. The eight-year-old won the Ryanair Chase at the Cheltenham Festival recently but it now appears as if a step back up in trip to three miles is on his agenda. His success at Cheltenham was one of the highlights of the entire Festival over the 2m5f trip but connections have long believed that three miles would suit the horse going forward.

Dynaste has flirted with the extended trip in the past with mixed success and how he performs in the Betfred Bowl at the National meeting could well have a major impact on his future plans. He won the Mildmay Novices Chase over 3m1f at Aintree last April and following his success at Cheltenham, many will fancy him to follow up that win with another one in the Bowl.

The popular grey has had mixed success over three miles this season with his flop in the King George Chase on Boxing Day almost too bad to be true. Prior to that though, Dynaste chased home Cue Card in the Betfair Chase at Haydock where he had the likes of Bobs Worth and Silviniaco Conti behind him which is rick solid form by any standard. He certainly looked at his very best in winning the Ryanair Chase recently as he bounded up the hill to pull clear of some very good horses following a patient ride by Tom Scudamore.

The Betfred Bowl at the Grand National Meeting has become an increasingly popular race for the staying chasers with some excellent horses on the roll of honour in recent years. Last season we saw First Lieutenant take the win for Mouse Morris and according to reports, he is likely to be back in a bid to retain his title after missing the Festival. All eyes will be on Dynaste though as he bids to join an illustrious group of horses who have won at both the Cheltenham Festival and at the Grand National meetings during the same season.

Dynaste is already as short as 12/1 with one firm for the 2015 Gold Cup while punters wanting to back him to repeat his Ryanair success can get just 4/1 at this stage. A good performance from the grey in the Bowl at Aintree could see those prices tumble with the Gold Cup surely the dream for any trainer and owner in the sport.
