Thyestes Chase Trends

Staged at Gowran Park racecourse, in Ireland, the Thyestes Chase is run over a distance of 3m, and is often contested by horses that go onto run in the Grand National later in the season. That said, we’ve not seen any winners of this race go onto win the Aintree race that same season, but Hedgehunter (2004) and Numbersixvalverde (2005) did go onto glory in the Aintree marathon later in their careers.

In recent years, the Willie Mullins yard have won the Thyestes Chase five times in the last 9 runnings, and eight times in all – he looks to have another strong hand this year too. He also won it in 2020 with Total Recall.

Here at GEEGEEZ we look back at recent winners and highlights the key stats to take into the 2021 running – this year staged on Thursday 28th January.
