Cheltenham Top Trainer Betting

Willie Mullins – Top Trainer Cheltenham Favourite 1/8

The overwhelming favourite to land the Top Trainer prize is the legendary Willie Mullins. He has had a stranglehold on the Cheltenham prize for some time winning four on-the-bounce since 2019 with an average of 6.75 winners per festival.

While Mullins is probably coming to the end of his career as a trainer, he continues to break records having had 10 winners at last year’s Cheltenham Festival. The County Kilkenny native has 88 trained winners in Cheltenham Festival History so if things go right for Mullins he could break a century of victories at the event this year.

Willie Mullins is installed as a heavy 1/8 favourite to be top trainer at the 2023 Cheltenham Festival.

Gordan Elliot – Top Trainer Cheltenham Second Favourite 7/1

The last man not named Willie Mullins to win the Top Trainer prize at Cheltenham was Gordan Elliot who won the prestigious prize at the 2017 festival with six winners and at the 2018 festival with eight winners, averaging seven winners per-meeting.

Elliot has a number of leading fancies entering the festival including Mighty Potter who is probably the banker of the lot as the red-hot favourite for the Turners Novices’ Chase following back-to-back Grade One victories.

Gordan Elliott is priced at 7/1 to reclaim the trainer prize and win it for the third time.

Nicky Henderson – 9/1

The British trainer’s 72 Cheltenham winners makes him the second most successful trainer in the history of the meeting, behind only this year’s leading fancy Willie Mullins.

A strong team is expected for the 2023 festival again with the likes of Shishkin, Jonbon and Constitution Hill.

Nicky Henderson is currently 9/1 for the top trainer prize and given some of his horses this year you would be foolish to rule him out of claiming the prize.

Joseph O’Brien – 25/1

The former jockey stepped away from riding seven-years-ago but is still only 29, 2-months-shy of his 30th birthday. Having already trained three Cheltenham Festival winners, you could see the reputation of his training status growing rapidly in the coming years.

Home By The Lee is one of his leading hopes in the festival as he races in the Stayers’ Hurdle. It might be a little early in his training career to land the prize, but you never know.

Joseph O’Brien has been given 25/1 odds to overcome to win the Top Trainer’s prize.

Henry De Bromhead – 28/1

Another outsider, but not without a chance, is Henry de Bromhead who is one of the most successful trainers in the history of the Cheltenham Gold Cup. He’ll be hoping to win the event for a third successive time at this year’s festival.

De Bromhead’s most successful horses, the “Galacticos” as he refers to them, are all getting older but he expects to have a team of between 16-20 runners this year. After the tragic death of his thirteen-year-old son Jack, back in September while riding, this will be a particularly poignant time for Henry and I don’t think anyone would begrudge him a strong festival.

Henry de Bromhead is currently 28/1 to land the Cheltenham Top Trainer prize.

Paul Nicholls – 33/1

The thirteen-time champion trainers stable is out-of-form at the meeting with 45 runners brought to the festival without success since Ditcheat’s Champion Chase win for Politiologue back in 2020.

Bravemansgame is perhaps the headliner of his team as he looks to bring around seventeen runners to Cheltenham 2023. That is almost double his total of nine runners from last year.

Paul Nicholls is currently 33/1 to win top trainer at the 2023 Cheltenham Festival.

Dan Skelton – 66/1

Dan Skelton has claimed that he intends to bring a “select team” to this year’s festival and will only run horses who have a “real chance” of getting into the winner’s enclosure.

Cheltenham Gold Cup contender Protektorat is perhaps his leading fancy. However, Dan Skelton’s overall price of 66/1 probably reflects his chance of success at this event when it comes to the top-trainer prize.
