Queen Mother Champion Chase Ante Post Preview

We may still be in the early stages of the UK and Irish National Hunt horse racing season with some massive fixtures on the horizon, but bookmakers are already looking forward to the Cheltenham Festival 2021. They just can’t help themselves and punters aren’t in a rush to argue as they too allow their eyes to be drawn towards the springtime racing spectacle. That’s why Coral Cheltenham offers and the likes by other brands are already set and worth noting without any doubt.

A lot can happen between now and the first race at the Prestbury Park showpiece event but that doesn’t stop backers aiming to get in early and secure a better price about their selection. The Cheltenham Festival opens on Tuesday 16 March and guides followers through four fantastic days of world-famous horse racing, before pulling the shutters down for another year on Friday 19 March.

This year’s schedule boasts all your favourite races, including the Arkle Chase, Champion Chase, RSA Chase, Ryanair Chase and Champion Hurdle. Odds compilers have gone up with their early thoughts on the winners of each of the week’s races and the earlier you bet the more value available.

Our team of horse racing experts turn the spotlight on the Queen Mother Champion Chase 2021 which is schedule to be run on Wednesday 17 March. The current field listed in the antepost betting won’t all make the final cut, but the rewards of betting early outweigh the risks. The current betting on champion chase is fierce, to say the least.

Champion Chase Key Runners/Favourites

Traders at all major bookmakers have priced up their antepost book for the Champion Chase 2021 and it makes for very interesting reading indeed. What clues can punters take from the current list? Who do bookies expect to come out on top next year? Where does the betting value come from? Knowing the answers to these questions will be the difference between watching the race as an interested bystander and cheering home a winner at a nice price and celebrating a Cheltenham Festival profit from one of the biggest and best-loved races of the week.

The Champion Chase 2021 promises to be one of the most competitive renewals in recent years. It may seem too early to make such a claim but the current line up tells us to prepare for a cracker and, although all of the current field won’t make the line on race day, the pool is an exciting one and we have high hopes for the renewal of this Grade 1 event that has a history that can be traced all the way back to 1959. Let’s take a closer look at how the antepost market is shaping up.

2021 Queen Mother Champion Chase Ante-Post Tips

Nube Negra (12/1)

Jockey Harry Skelton faces a dilemma over which horse to ride in the Champion Chase 2021 after Nube Negra emerged as a contender with victory in the Desert Orchid Chase at Kempton Park. Trained by older brother Dan, he became only the second horse to lower the colours of Alior over obstacles with a sensational success.

Spanish-bred Nube Negra had placed in graded races over fence as a novice chaser, but took his form to a new level at an unfancied 20/1 over the Christmas period. Skelton also has the ride on reigning champion chaser Politologue, so must now choose between the pair. At a 12/1 ante post price in the Champion Chase betting, Nube Negra is one to keep an eye on, especially as he hasn’t finished outside the first two in five career starts over fences.

Put The Kettle On (14/1)

Put the Kettle On horse

Although beaten at Leopardstown over Christmas by the Champion Chase 2021 favourite Chacun Pour Soi, Put The Kettle On is unbeaten in three career starts at Cheltenham. This Henry De Bromhead mare sprung a shock in the Arkle last season after winning the official trial for the big two-mile novice chase earlier in the campaign.

Put The Kettle On was at it again when taking Shloer Chase on her reappearance to bring up her Cheltenham hat-trick. Running at the Christmas Festival on her own side of the Irish Sea was not the original plan either. De Bromhead intended to run Put The Kettle On in the Desert Orchid at Kempton instead, but horses from the Emerald Isle could not travel at the time. While she has something to find with Chacun Pour Soi, her fabulous record over course and distance is behind ante post odds of 14/1 in the Champion Chase betting and could be each-way value.

Champion Chase 2021 Betting Guide

If you intend to bet on any race at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival, whether that be antepost or on the day, you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to options. The earlier you bet the better the price available to you should be. The longer you leave it, the more markets available and the more security given to your stake money offered by the Cheltenham non runner no bet promotion.

The antepost market is available now and you’ll find Queen Mother Champion Chase odds at most major bookmakers. The prices are attractive as you must factor in the chance of your pick not running in the race and you losing your stake without a run. This could be down to your selection running in another race or even injury between now and the off.

There are many things you can do to maximise your chase of bagging a winner at the Cheltenham Festival. These include…

Reading Expert Reviews

Reading expert reviews of the top races from industry insiders, trainers, jockeys and commentators. The more you read on a race the better educated you will become and the more of an understanding you will have of the runners to keep on the right side of. Read interviews, check the form, run through the gossip columns, anything you can get your hands on you believe could prove useful when it comes to backing a winner.

Find Better Odds

Almost important as backing a winner is doing it at the right price. Landing a 6/1 winner on a major horse race is all well and good but it doesn’t quite compare to bagging a 12/1 on the same runner, simply by doing your homework. Once you have decided on the runner for you in the big race, check any respected price comparison website. This will tell you which firms are offering market best price. The most generous traders are the ones you should be betting with to maximise your profit.

Take Advantage of Betting Offers

Check out the promotions available. Modern betting is filled with promotions on the biggest and best horse racing. These include each-way, money back, enhanced odds and price boosts. Check the promos page of your chosen bookie on race day to find out what they are offering and how you could use it to your advantage.

Watch the Race Live

Live streaming has become common with the main online betting firms and it’s something you should insist on.

2020 Queen Mother Champion Chase Recap

Winner: Politologue

Paul Nicholls did not even have a runner entered on the opening day of the 2020 Cheltenham Festival, but trained a one-two in the feature contest on Ladies Day – the Queen Mother Champion Chase. Politlogue went a place better than 12 months ago in a race where the fancied runners didn’t take their chance due to lameness and red-hot odds-on favourite Defi Du Seuil didn’t turn up.

Altior was found to have a problem with a splint in the days leading up to the defence of his Queen Mother Champion Chase crown after scoring in each of the two previous seasons. Irish raider Chacun Pour Soi, meanwhile, had an abscess on the day of the race forcing Willie Mullins to withdraw him.

That seemingly left the way clear for Defi Du Seuil to land odds of 2/5, but he simply didn’t run his race despite two previous Cheltenham Festival successes. Politologue instead made virtually all and jumped well under new jockey Harry Skelton to win unchallenged at 8/1 and score by 9 1/2 lengths in easy fashion from stable companion Dynamite Dollars, who was returned at 7/1.

This Queen Mother Champion Chase renewal clearly cut up and a paltry field of five went to post to contest it. Bun Doran, winner of a handicap over course and distance, was back in third at big odds of 33/1 with Defi Du Seuil a disappointing form. Looking at this form going forward, it would be wise not to take it too literally.

A decimated field and the fact that Politologue, who had failed to win at the Cheltenham Festival in four previous attempts, was given far too much rope mean it truth this race will do little to inform the future.

2019 Champion Chase Recap

The 2019 Champion Chase was won by Altior and that’s the reason he has been popular in the early exchanges of the betting. Is he good enough to win three races on the bounce? The champion performed brilliantly last year, beating off the attentions of Politologue in second and the third finisher which was Sceau Royal.

Those who had their cash down that day will be only too pleased to stick with Altior if he makes the final field of the 2021 Queen Mother Champion Chase. The stats prove winning again won’t be easy however as winning this title for a third time is an achievement that has eluded many horses more famous than Altior. That isn’t to say he can’t do it, however.
