Ultima Handicap Chase Betting Tips, Preview & Prediction

I was lucky enough to catch Kildisart at 25/1 for the Ultima earlier this month. Ben Pauling’s chaser has been backed into 12/1 following an encouraging fifth at Kempton on Adonis day, and Kildisart certainly has the class to make a big splash in the first handicap of the 2020 Cheltenham Festival.

While I fancy Kildisart to run really well, THE CONDITIONAL has been my long-term fancy for the Ultima since December and he’s most-definitely first choice in my Ultima Handicap Chase 2020 tips. David Bridgewater’s recruit saw off future winner, West Approach over course-and-distance in Cheltenham’s Showcase Meeting, before a magnificent run to place a close second to De Rasher Counter in the Ladbrokes Trophy. 

The Conditional travelled like the most likely winner in the Classic Chase at Warwick, before fading in the final half-mile of that 29-furlong marathon. Back down in trip, around a course he clearly likes, The Conditional should be a massive player off a mark of just 139.
