Cheltenham Top Jockey Betting Odds – Cheltenham Festival 2023

Check out all our Cheltenham Top Jockey Betting Odds for this year’s festival as we get ever closer to the start of racing at Prestbury Park.

Paul Townend – Top Jockey Favourite 1/3

The overwhelming favourite to land the Cheltenham Top Jockey prize at the 2023 festival and with good reason too. Townend became number one jockey for Willie Mullins, who is a nine time winner of the Trainers Title at Cheltenham, after the retirement of Ruby Walsh in 2019.

After winning Champion Jockey in 2020 and most recently in 2022, when he had a record ten winners, he will be looking to take home his third title in the last four years.

With the likes of Energumne, State Man and Vauban all likely to be his rides odds of 1/3 for Paul Townend could be justified.

Nico de Boinville – Top Jockey Second Favourite 6/1

The number one rider for the Nicky Henderson stable who is a three-time winner of the Trainers Title. Although his most recent success came all the way back in 2012.

De Boinville won the Cheltenham top rider award in 2019 with three winners: Altior (Queen Mother Champion Chase), Pentland Hills (Triumph Hurdle) and William Henry (Coral Cup). Nico’s biggest fancies at the 2023 Cheltenham Festival are Constitution Hill and Shishkin.

Danny Mullins – 10/1

While not the number one jockey for his father Willie Mullins, which is Townend. The Mullins have such a strong team that very few would decline the chance to get second choice of the team!

Danny Mullins is likely to still ride the likes of Il Etait Temps, Dysart Dynamo, Vauban, Gaelic Warrior, and Gala Marceau. While it is unlikely that he will earn the title of Top Jockey at this festival, stranger things have certainly happened in racing.

Danny Mullins is currently 11/1 to cause a minor shock in Cheltenham.

Nico de Boinville is currently 6/1 to win the Champion Jockey prize again.

Davy Russell – 12/1

The 43-year-old veteran rider is no stranger to the Cheltenham Festival having had his first ever winner at event onboard Native Jack in the 2006 Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase.

Russell has had twenty-five festival winners in total after young Jack Kennedy’s unfortunate leg-break in early January it was confirmed, despite hopes he’d be at the festival, that he remains unfit to ride.

Davy Russell following that leg-break made a shock U-turn on retirement plans.

What a story it would be if Davy Russell could land the Top Jockey prize at 10/1 odds.

Rachael Blackmore – 12/1

The Tipperary rider Rachael Blackmore won the 2021 Top Jockey after riding home 6-winners including winning with Honeysuckle in the Champion Hurdle. Blackmore has credited much of her success t0 trainer Henry de Bromhead for appointing her is head jockey.

She now has 12 victories at the Cheltenham Festival under her belt and Rachael Blackmore is currently priced at 12/1 to repeat her 2021 heroics and win the Top Jockey prize again.
