The main race on day two of the Cheltenham Festival is the Queen Mother Champion Chase. It is run over 1 mile, 7 furlongs and 199 yards and is open to horses aged 5 years or older. Off time is 3.30.
The first Champion Chase was run in 1959. The most prolific winner is Badsworth Boy, who won the race 3 years in a row from 1983. As is the case with the Champion Hurdle, it is a small field of 7 runners.
Take a Break
Horses should ideally have had a reasonable rest. Those that last ran between 46 and 95 days ago have 8 wins from 40 attempts with a profit of 9 points at SP and an AE of 1.14. The remainder have won just once from 39 attempts.
It is better to side with experienced horses. Those horses that have had between 15 and 23 runs have produced 5 wins from 27 runs with a profit of 5 points and an AE of 1.26.
Forecast favourites have a poor record with 3 wins from 9 runs and a loss of 2 points. The AE is 0.62.
French-bred horses have a poor record with 4 wins from 37 runs and a loss of 17 points. The AE is 0.69.
All the winners have been in the top 4 in the betting forecast. The remainder have 0 wins from 42 attempts.
This leaves just one horse, NUBE NEGRA. I suggest having a small wage on this at 20/1 with Bet365. His jockey Harry Skelton won this race in 2020 with Politilogue.
