Tingle Creek Tips

The Tingle Creek is traditionally one of the highest quality races in the sport and therefore a hugely popular betting heat thanks to it being the first Grade 1 on these shores over two miles. You will be able to view our tips here when the final declarations are made.

What is the Tingle Creek Chase?

The Tingle Creek Chase is a Grade One race run over a trip of two miles at Sandown Park at the start of December.

Thirteen fences are jumped in what is one of the key trials of the year for the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival. The race itself is a prestigious affair in its own right with some of the countries best two-milers clashing for the first time at one of the sports great venues.

The famous railway fences down the back straight at Sandown offer one of the toughest tests of jumping in the sport and provide the perfect spectacle for the fastest horses in the national hunt game.

What happened in the 2019 Tingle Creek Chase?

In what was one of the most thrilling finishes of the year, Defi Du Seuil claimed Tingle Creek glory from the fast finishing Un De Sceaux and Waiting Patiently - either of which could have won should there have been an extra ten yards. 

Old boy and popular fan favourite Un De Sceaux made the running in his typical bold style and looked as if he could make all before the revived and now feared Defi Du Seuil battled past him approaching the last. The heavy ground started to take its toll on Defi Du Seuil however who started to weaken, the finishing post coming just in time to give connections a memorable win.

The history of the Tingle Creek Chase

Named after the excellent Tingle Creek who was plying his trade in the 1970's, the Tingle Creek Chase was first run in 1979 as a handicap race before being promoted to Grade One status in 1994.

Since then, the race has grown with every passing year. It is possible to make a case for the Tingle Creek having the best roll of honour outside of the Cheltenham Festival with every years winner being as impressive as the year previous. 

Multiple winners of the race have gone on to win the Queen Mother Champion Chase in the same season to highlight its importance even further. 

The ultimate test of speed and jumping, the Tingle Creek is a special contest and one of the favourite fixtures on the calendar for any National Hunt enthusiast and looks set to stay that way for many years to come.

Who is the most iconic winner of the Tingle Creek Chase?

Picking the most iconic winner of the Tingle Creek is harder than picking your favourite child.

The list of legends to have won this race is unparalleled with Desert Orchid, Flagship Uberalles, Kauto Star, Master Minded, Sprinter Sacre and the aforementioned Altior just a smattering of names to fall under that bracket. On this occasions though we are going to go with Moscow Flyer who famously won the race twice, including in 2004 when he beat Azertyuiop and Well Chief in a race widely regarded as one of the best of the 21st century.

That 2004 race will live long in the memory and with Moscow Flyer coming out on top that glorious day, the Irish trained legend deserves his place at the top.

Are there any trials for the Tingle Creek Chase?

The Tingle Creek falls quite early in the season so it isn't unusual for a horse to start their campaign off at Sandown, but there are one or two races to watch in October and November that could produce a runner or two. The Shloer Chase at Cheltenham can offer potential Tingle Creek horses a prep run before but in truth it is better to look back at the previous season for likely runners.

The Queen Mother Champion Chase and the Arkle are the two most likely races to produce runners for the Tingle Creek with the novices often stepping up to take on their elders at Sandown.
