The Cross Country Chase’s unique fences means it requires a specialist to win it, meaning that the betting largely revolves around the trial races/qualifiers that take place throughout the season. As such, make sure you keep your eyes peeled on horseracing.net for expert views and analysis on the 2021 Cross Country Chase as the picture becomes clearer.

Cheltenham Festival Tips

What is the Cross Country Chase?

The Cross Country Chase is a unique event, and was introduced in 2005 as part of the extension of the festival from three days to four. The race is currently backed by Glenfarcas, and is run over three miles, six furlongs and 37 yards, with 32 obstacles cleared in total.       

The history of the Cross Country Chase

Since its introduction in 2005, the Cross Country Chase has been dominated by Enda Bolger, who has won the race five times - though it’s worth noting that Gordon Elliott has won each of the last three renewals. The race was originally run as a handicap, but was switched to a conditions race race in 2016, and since that switch it has quickly become a popular warm-up race for the following month’s Grand National at Aintree - a path taken by the winners of the last three renewals of the Cross Country Chase, Cause of Causes (2017) and Tiger Roll (2018 & 2019). The unique nature of the race means that specialists are common, and three horses have won the race on more than one occasion since its inception at the Cheltenham Festival; Garde Champetre, Balthazar King and Tiger Roll. 

What happened in the 2020 Cross Country Chase?

Dual Cross Country Chase hero Tiger Roll was unable to make it a hat-trick of wins in this Cheltenham Festival contest as the David Cottin-trained Easysland stormed to a fine victory on Wednesday afternoon. Prominently ridden from the flag fall, Easysland, who was bought by JP McManus following a win at Cheltenham earlier in the season, coasted through the race, and as Tiger Roll was sent in search of the winner, Gordon Elliott's dual Grand National hero was unable to reel him in, and with the pair pulling miles clear of the rest it was the French raider that prevailed. Out Sam stayed on best of the rest to finish in third spot.

Who is the most iconic winner of the Cross Country Chase?

As mentioned above, we may never see a winner of the Cross Country Chase again who’s quite like Tiger Roll. The dual-Grand National winner has had an unconventional career, considering he made his name by winning the Triumph Hurdle in 2014, before his hurdling career very much went into the doldrums. However, after a very brief stint on the Flat via an all-weather race at Dundalk, he rediscovered his love for the game over fences, and came into his own as a staying chaser, recording successive Festival wins in the 2017 National Hunt Chase and the 2018 Cross Country Chase. Tiger Roll saved his finest season yet for the 2018/19 campaign, when he trailblazed to success in the Cross Country Chase, before becoming the first horse since Red Rum in 1974 to defend his Grand National crown the following month. All being well, he will return to the 2020 Cheltenham Festival looking become a scarcely believable five-time winner at the famous event. 

Are there any trials for the Cross Country Chase?

The Cross Country Chase is the feature event of the Glenfarcas Series, for which there are qualifying events at Cheltenham in November and December. Alongside this, there are also qualifying races in Ireland at Punchestown and in France at Pau. 

Who is the most successful jockey in the Cross Country Chase?

The most successful jockey in the history of the Cross Country Chase is Nina Carberry, who has ridden four winners in the race, courtesy of Heads Onthe Ground (2007), Garde Champetre (2008 & 2009) and Josies Orders (2016). 

Who is the most successful trainer in the Cross Country Chase?

As mentioned above, the most successful trainer in the history of the Cross Country Chase is Enda Bolger, with five winners. Bolger is responsible for each of Nina Carberry’s winners in the race (Heads Onthe Ground, Garde Champetre and Josies Orders), and he also trained Spot Thedifference to victory in 2005.
