Fourth race of ladies day

The Champion Chase is one of the most prestigious races in the National Hunt calendar and is the fourth race on ladies day making it the third Grade 1 contest on the day.

The race is ran over 2 miles on the old Cheltenham Chase course, where there is 13 fences to overcome.

The race has a massive reputation and is symbolised by the huge winnings on offer, with £225,000 prize money going to the winner.

History of the Queen Mother Champion Chase

The race was added to the Cheltenham Festival in 1959 and was originally titled as the National Hunt Two Mile Champion Chase.

The race stayed known as that until 1980, where it was then named in tribute to the Queen Mother due to her 80th birthday. The decision was made due to the Queen Mother’s continued support for national hunt racing as she was a prominent owner on the national hunt scene.

For the next 27 years, the race was simply known as the Queen Mother Champion Chase and it wasn’t until 2008 that the race was open for sponsorship. The first sponsor of the race was Seasons Holidays before it became SportingBet Champion Chase from 2011 to 2013. Bet Victor named the 2014 race before current sponsors Betway took over, for it to be known as the Betway Queen Mother Chase.

Recent years

Altior emerged victorious for Nicky Henderson and Nico de Boinville in 2019, he followed up his 2018 success to become a double winner of the race. He may well be back in 2020, a third win will put him join top with Badsworth Boy who won the race back to back from 1983 to 1985.

Henderson himself is already the record trainer in the race, saving saddled the winner on six occasions with four different horses, with five of his wins coming in the last 8 renewals of the race with the following:

Nicky Henderson:

Remittance Man (1992)

Finian's Rainbow (2012)

Sprinter Sacre (2013, 2016)

Altior (2018, 2019)

Should Altior return in 2020 to spearhead Henderson’s attack, he’ll be parented by De Boinville who is his regular rider and he’ll be going for his fourth win in the race after winning three times in the last four years however still has to get to Barry Geraghty, who has been successful in the race on six occasions, with the following horses:

Barry Geraghty:


Moscow Flyer (2003, 2005)

Big Zeb (2010)

Finian's Rainbow (2012)

Sprinter Sacre (2013

The Champion Chase has been a race to follow the English horses in the most recent times, with the likes of Willie Mullins struggling - this is one of the Cheltenham prizes that he’s still yet to win.

British trainers have won seven of the last nine renewals, with the other two both won by Henry de Bromhead. It will be worth checking out anything he sends over for 2020 as well as who leads Nicky Henderson’s attack on the race.
