About the Mildmay of Flete Challenge Cup

The Mildmay of Flete Challenge Cup has had its identity affected by several recent changes in sponsorship, and is currently known as the Brown Advisory and Merriebelle Stable Plate. The essentials have remained the same, however, with contests covering a distance of 2 miles 5 furlongs and 17 fences on the way to the finishing post.

While the Mildmay of Flete Challenge Cup offers one of the more generous purses for a Cheltenham Festival handicap, it’s field comprises horses good enough to compete at Grade 3 handicap level, but unlikely to ever have an impact on higher rated races. Surprisingly the race has produced a multiple title winner, with The Tsarevich winning the race twice in succession in the 1980s.

Betting on the Mildmay of Flete Challenge Cup

As with any handicap you’re going to have to do the hard yards for picking a winner yourself, screening the field for horses whose weight and staying power match race and course conditions on the day. That said, the Mildmay of Flete Challenge Cup does seem to favour horses who have shown some sort of form prior to competing, so horses with places or wins prior to the race are worth considering, particularly if there are wins over a similar distance.

Wins by rank outsiders are also the exception rather than the norm, which means you’re likely to find the winner lurking in the band of horses priced 16/1 or lower, although you’d be well advised to stay away from the underpriced favourites that are likely to emerge as a consequence of this race following on the day’s feature race.
