Saturday 27th October 2019 - Old Roan Chase - Grade 2 - 2m3f200y
The Old Roan betting will be here...
THE OLD ROAN CHASE IS A PATTERN RACE TRIAL FOR THE RYANAIR CHASE AT CHELTENHAM
The Old Roan Chase is a key Cheltenham Festival Trial which is held right at the start of the season in late October. The race is run over two miles four furlongs at Aintree and maybe we will see some Ryanair Chase contenders for Cheltenham make their seasonal debuts at Aintree for the Old Roan this season.
The stand out name on the roll of honour is that of the great Kauto Star who won the Old Roan in 2006 before going onto win the Cheltenham Gold Cup at the Festival later that same season. The Paul Nicholls trained Frodon won the Old Roan Chase in 2018 before going on to win the Ryanair Chase at the Festival later the same season.
