What is the Bobbyjo Chase?

The Bobbyjo Chase is a Grade 3 race run at Fairyhouse in February, and is run over three miles and one furlong. With 20 fences to jump during the contest the Bobbyjo Chase is one of the feature races on the Irish National Hunt calendar outside the big festivals and it has historically thrown up some classy winners down the years.

First run in 2003 and run in honour of a former Grand National winner Bobbyjo, it was originally classed as a Grade 2 race before it was downgraded to Grade 3 status in 2017, but it's still a fascinating contest and has often thrown up some notable runners that have gone on to compete in the Grand National.

The Willie Mullins-trained Hedgehunter was victorious in the 2005 Bobbyjo Chase and then went on to claim Grand National glory at Aintree a few months later to show this race is a real top notch trial for the Merseyside marathon.

What happened in the 2020 Bobbyjo Chase ?

Willie Mullins continued his dominance in the Bobbyjo Chase as Acapella Bourgeois produced a stunning performance to claim the Fairyhouse Grade 2 title by an emphatic 15 lengths. Gordon Elliott's Alpha Des Obeaux was sent off the favourite for the race, but he failed to put up any challenge to the winner, who beat stablemate Bellshill in superb fashion to take the crown with aplomb.

The history of the Bobbyjo Chase

A relatively new addition to the Irish National Hunt calendar, the Bobbyjo Chase has still had some classy winners that have gone on to bigger and better things in their career. 

As mentioned previously, Hedgehunter used his win in the Bobbyjo Chase as a springboard to Grand National glory, while the likes of dual winner Roi Du Mee, On His Own and Boston Bob have all tasted victory here and add significant strength to the roll of honour.

Who is the most iconic winner of the Bobbyjo Chase?

It's hard to look away from Hedgehunter once again, as the feat of achieving the Bobbyjo/Grand National double is magnificent, and while the Mullins yard has had a plethora of classy winners win this race, Hedgehunter will always be regarded as one of the most iconic winners back in 2005.

Are there any trials for the Bobbyjo Chase?

A host of races could be used as trials for the Bobbyjo Chase with the race itself often unearthing clues for the following year's renewal at Fairyhouse. Some of the elite handicap chases over Christmas can provide clues and be a notable trial for the Bobbyjo Chase which lights up February's action at the business end of the season.

Who is the most successful jockey in the Bobbyjo Chase?

With Willie Mullins having such a fine record in the Bobbyjo Chase then it's no surprise to see Ruby Walsh topping the standings as the most successful jockey in the Bobbyjo Chase. Walsh amassed four wins during his career and claimed his first success on board Prince De Beauchene in 2012. Wins on On His Own (2014), Boston Bob (2016) and Pleasant Company (2017) enhanced Walsh's record in the race.

Who is the most successful trainer in the Bobbyjo Chase?

Willie Mullins has saddled the winner of the Bobbyjo Chase a staggering ten times and his fine winning record kicked off with Hedgehunter's win in 2005. Recapturing the crown in 2007 with Homer Wells winning, Mullins, who also has a staggering Cheltenham Festival record then saddled The Midnight Club (2012), Prince De Beauchene, On His Own (2014), Boston Bob (2016) and Pleasant Company (2017), Bellshill (2018), Rathvinden (2019) and Acapella Bourgeois (2020) to glory.
