Cheltenham Festival Tips

What is the Queen Mother Champion Chase?

The Queen Mother Champion Chase is the feature event on day two of the Cheltenham Festival, which is traditionally held on a Wednesday in March. A Grade One steeplechase over just shy of two miles (one mile, seven furlongs and 199 yards), the Champion Chase is the main minimum-distance chase in the National Hunt calendar. There have been a host of multiple winners of the race over the years, particularly recently, with Altior, Sprinter Sacre, Master Minded and Moscow Flyer all achieving the feat this century.

The history of the Champion Chase

The Champion Chase was first run in 1959 as the National Hunt Two-Mile Champion Chase, and the inaugural running was won by Quita Que. Several legendary names have won the race over the years, including Flyingbolt in 1966, who is officially the second-greatest National Hunt horse of all-time behind Arkle. Each of Fortria (1960 & 1961), Drinny Double (1967 & 1968), Royal Relief (1972 & 1974), Skymas (1976 & 1977) and Hilly Way (1978 & 1979) won more than one renewal of the race in its first 20 years, though Badsworth Boy became the first and remains the only horse to win three renewals of the race for the Dickinson family, between 1983-1985. Several horses have won more than one renewal since, including Moscow Flyer (2003 & 2005), Master Minded (2008 & 2009), Altior (2018 & 2019) and the great Sprinter Sacre (2013 & 2016), who have all achieved the feat since the turn of the century. The race was given its present title in 1980, in honour of the Queen Mother on her 80th birthday, who was a keen National Hunt fan. The race didn’t have a sponsor until 2007, and is currently backed by Betway.

What happened in the 2020 Champion Chase?

Following the late withdrawals of Altior and Chacun Pour Soi, it was Defi Du Seuil that was sent off a short odds-on favourite, but it was the Paul Nicholls-trained Politologue that produced a phenomenal front-running display to hand the Ditcheat handler another success in the Champion Chase. Kept on the outside for most of the race off the pace, Defi Du Seuil was sticky over a few obstacles, and he was struggling a long way out. But, while the jolly found it tough, Harry Skelton on board Politologue was cruising clear of the likes of Dynamite Dollars and Bun Doran and the galloping grey went on to win by nine and a half lengths from his stablemate Dynamite Dollars in a boilover.

Who is the most iconic winner of Champion Chase?

Several legendary chasers could stake a strong claim to this title, though few Champion Chase winners pulled at the heartstrings quite like the Nicky Henderson-trained Sprinter Sacre. Having finished third in the 2011 Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, Sprinter Sacre quickly made the most of the switch to chasing, and finished his novice season with a perfect record of five wins out of five, taking apart the field in the 2012 Arkle Trophy. Sprinter Sacre quickly took control of the two-mile chase division, and his 19-length victory in the 2013 Queen Mother Champion Chase led to many declaring him to be the best horse since the great Arkle. However, the bubble would burst the following season, when Sprinter Sacre was pulled-up due to injury in the Desert Orchid Chase at Kempton, and subsequently diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat. Many assumed that Sprinter Sacre’s best days were behind him, and he struggled to return to his brilliant best when eventually returning from injury in January 2015, suffering defeat on all three of his starts that season, including when pulled-up in the 2015 Champion Chase. However, he bounced back to winning ways on reappearance the following season, striking in the Shloer Chase at Cheltenham, before following up in the Desert Orchid Chase at Kempton a month later. The presence of the previous year’s Arkle winner, Un De Sceaux, in the 2016 Champion Chase meant that Sprinter Sacre was widely expected to be playing for a place at best, but he found plenty of his old spark to take control of the race from two fences out, before holding on in the run in - to ensure that there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. 

Are there any trials for the Champion Chase?

There are several recognised Champion Chase trials throughout the jumps season, with the most important being the Tingle Creek at Sandown in December, and the Clarence House Chase (January) and the Ascot Chase (February), which are both held at Ascot. Other races to keep an eye on include the Haldon Gold Cup (Exeter), the Shloer Chase (Cheltenham), the Desert Orchid Chase (Kempton) and the Game Spirit Chase (Newbury). Over in Ireland, Champion Chase contenders regularly come from the Fortria Chase at Navan, the John Durkan Memorial Punchestown Chase at Punchestown, the Hilly Way Chase at Cork and the Paddy’s Rewards Club Chase at Leopardstown. 

Who is the most successful jockey in the Champion Chase?

The joint-most successful jockeys in the history of the Champion Chase are Pat Taaffe and Barry Geraghty, with five wins apiece. Taaffe’s five Champion Chase wins came on board Fortria (1960 & 1961), Ben Stack (1964), Flyingbolt (1966) and Straight Fort (1970), while Geraghty’s five wins in the Champion Chase came courtesy of Moscow Flyer (2003 & 2005), Big Zeb (2010), Finian’s Rainbow (2012) and Sprinter Sacre (2013).   

Who is the most successful trainer in the Champion Chase?

Paul Nicholls has the finest record in the race in recent times, as he has saddled the winner six times during his illustrious career. Call Equiname (1999) was his first winner in the Grade 1, while Master Minded (2008,2009) and Politologue (2020) are just another brace of notable winners in the Cheltenham Festival contest.
