The Ascot Chase is one of the last big races before the Cheltenham Festival and tends to attract a stellar cast-list of runners each season. The betting for the race will always be popular and we will have all the prices on the page as soon as they become available.

Ascot Chase Tips

This is likely to develop into a match race between Riders Onthe Storm and last year's winner, Cyrname. Ready preference is for the latter, who has been spectacular in each of his last three starts over course and distance, and although the three-mile experiment failed in the King George last time, business if expected to carry on as usual now returned to his optimum track and trip.

What is the Ascot Chase?

The Ascot Chase is a Grade One race run over a trip of two miles and five furlongs at Ascot Racecourse each February.

There are seventeen fences to be jumped in the race at the Berkshire venue and tends to attract some of the finest animals in training. The mid-February position of the race in the calendar makes it one of the best post-Christmas contests each season and one of the final key trials for the Cheltenham Festival.

Horses that run well in the Ascot Chase will often take their chance in the Ryanair Chase at Prestbury Park with Cue Card just one horse to win both races back in 2013 for Colin Tizzard.

What happened in the 2021 Ascot Chase?

Jeremy Scott's Dashel Drasher produced a gutsy display to fend off a late surge from the Paul Nicholls-trained Master Tommytucker to win the Grade 1 Ascot Chase. With hot favourite Cyrname pulling up in the middle of the contest it was left to Dashel Drasher to dominate the closing stages, but a pedestrian leap at the last saw his momentum halt abruptly and Master Tommytucker tried to reel him in. However, Matt Griffiths managed to galvanise his mount in the final furlong to maintain a narrow advantage in a thrilling finish.

The history of the Ascot Chase

The Ascot Chase is a staple of the national hunt calendar now but actually only has a relatively short history having only been first run in 1995.

Initially known as the Comet Chase, the race was run over a trip of just over two-miles-and-three-furlongs before being upped to its present distance in 2008.

The Ascot Chase is widely considered to be the best race of the season run over jumps at the famous Berkshire venue with an increasingly impressive list of winners being built over the past decade. Some of the best horses in training have won the race during their careers and we can once again expect another brilliant winner this season.

Who is the most iconic winner of the Ascot Chase?

The list of Ascot Chase winners is a sensational one with some of the legends of the sport crossing the line in front at the home of the Royal meeting.

One Man, Tiutchev, Cue Card and Silviniaco Conti are just four of the names to take note of on the roll of honour but none of those can compare with the most famous winner.

Kauto Star was best known for his five King George wins and his two gold Cup successes but he was a versatile horse who could drop in trip and still win as he showed when winning the Ascot Chase with some ease back in 2008. The Paul Nicholls trained horse built a glittering CV and that included his win in Berkshire which to this day is remembered by those at the venue.

Are there any trials for the Ascot Chase?

The Ascot Chase attracts a wide array of runners who are expected to head to Cheltenham for the Ryanair Chase or the Gold Cup meaning there are no set trials.

Punters can however get an idea of potential runners by looking at the 1965 Chase which is a Grade Two run over the same course and distance each November. The George on Boxing Day is also an option for horses on that route towards the Ascot Chase with Cur Card a great example of that before his two wins in the February contest.

Who is the most successful jockey in the Ascot Chase?

A number of star jockeys have won the Ascot Chase but none can match Barry Geraghty who has won the contest three times during his stellar career. Geraghty has won the race on Monet's Garden (2010) and Riverside Theatre (2011 + 2012).

Who is the most successful trainer in the Ascot Chase?

Martin Pipe made a career out of mopping up the biggest races in the sport and that was certainly the case in the Ascot Chase. Pipe won the race four times with Tresor de Mai (2002), Tiutchev (2003), Our Vic (2006) and It Takes Time (2005) all scoring for the famous trainer.
