About the Queen Mother Champion Chase
The Queen Mother Champion Chase is the premier 2 mile steeplechase in National Hunt racing. Run over the Old Course at Cheltenham on the second day of the Festival, with 12 fences jumped on the way to the finishing post. The race is open to 5-year-old and above steeplechase racehorses.
The Queen Mother Champion Chase attracts the finest 2 mile specialists in jumps racing, as well as horses who’re strong over 2.5 miles. A win in the race is typically a crowning achievement in a horse’s career, and multiple winners rank as all time greats in the sport of National Hunt racing.
Betting on the Queen Mother Champion Chase
The Queen Mother Champion Chase attracts widespread public interest in the UK, which means that betting markets usually see the favourite’s odds weighted down by money from casual punters. This has translated into a pretty poor track record by antepost favourites, with short priced entries frequently failing to make the places.
The Clarence House Chase is the key trial for the Queen Mother Champion Chase, and the winner is always worth a punt if they make the final field. The same goes for horses who have won the Arkle Challenge Trophy in previous visits to Cheltenham. Horses who have won both races in their careers are the strongest Champion Chase candidates you’re likely to find.
