What is the Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup?

The Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup is a handicap chase for amateur riders, run on Cheltenham’s New Course over a distance of three miles and two furlongs, and is open to horses aged five and over. It holds a unique status as one of just three races for amateur riders at the Festival, and is named in honour of both Fulke Walwyn and Kim Muir.        

The history of the Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup

The Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup was established in 1946, and was named after Kim Muir, a cavalry officer who lost his life during World War II. The name of Fulke Walwyn was added to the title in 1991 after the legendary trainer, who trained 40 winners at the Cheltenham Festival. The race has been won by several recognisable names in the past, and Jamie Codd has built up a particular affinity in the race of late, riding the winner on four occasions since 2009.    

What happened in the 2020 Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup?

A competitive field lined up for the finale on day three of the Cheltenham Festival, but it was the Gordon Elliott-trained Milan Native that outbattled Kilfilum Cross to land the honours. Travelling smartly throughout, Milan Native was sent to the front as they turned for home, but on his inside Kilfilum Cross was being pushed into contention, but it was 9/1 shot Milan Native that found enough up the hill to land the prize. Kilfilum Cross held on for second with Bob Mahler back in third and Plan Of Attack in fourth.

Who is the most iconic winner of the Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup?

Several winners of the Kim Muir have gone on to run well in the Grand National later in their careers, including the 2010 Kim Muir winner, Ballabriggs, who won the 2011 Aintree spectacular in the famous Trevor Hemmings silks. After winning the Kim Muir, Ballabriggs was directly aimed at the following year’s National, winning two novice hurdle races before finishing second in the Premier Chase at Kelso once his mark had been confirmed at Aintree. Ballabriggs would of course go on to win the Grand National, defeating the Sam Waley-Cohen-ridden Oscar Time by over two lengths. Ballabriggs failed to win another race in six attempts, and was handed a well-earned retirement after being pulled-up during the 2013 Grand National.

As the Kim Muir is a handicap chase for amateur riders, there aren’t any trial races as such for the race, though keeping an eye on both graded races and big handicap chases in both Britain and Ireland throughout the season can help to paint a picture of what the race could look like on the day.
