Day 2: Wednesday 11th March 2020 – 3.30pm – Queen Mother Champion Chase – Grade 1 – 2m
The absence of Altior has shaken the market as he was expected to fight closely with Philip Hobb’s Defi Du Seuil. The latter is surely the form horse going into this Champion Chase renewal, having secured three wins over two miles in this season, two of which were on Grade 1 level. It is not surprising to see that he has been strongly heading the market since the news that defending champion Altior will have to give it a miss due to lameness issues appeared firstly on Sunday. But we do not see this being a one-way affair, as Chacun Pour Soi, who has won the Grade 1 Dublin Chase at Leopardstown should be able to give the favourite some problems.
Our Bet: CHACUN POUR SOI
Surely the absence of Altior is disappointing, but from a betting point of view, makes things a bit easier to read. We believe this is far than assigned to Defi Du Seuil as a result. Surely he has won already twice at the Cheltenham festival and looked in great form at Ascot last time, but when those met at Punchestown last spring, he didn’t do well. Willie Mullins’ charge was also impressive at Leopardstown last time out, and we believe it has what it takes to come on top once again.
Our Verdict: Chacun Pour Soi (As He Is A NR, We Replace Him With Defi Du Seuil)

Queen Mother Champion Chase History
Without any doubts, The Queen Mother Champion Chase is the most anticipated race of the second day of the Cheltenham Festival and one of the highlights of the week. Initially, this race was called the National Hunt Two-Mile Champion Chase. In 1980, however, the name was changed to celebrate the 80th birthday of the Queen Mother.
The Queen Mother Champion Chase is run over a distance of 2 miles, and there are 12 fences that horses have to negotiate. It has a prize pot of around £320,000, and it is the most important minimum distance chase in the National Hunt racing season.
In terms of successes, it is Tom Dreaper the leading trainer. Between the 60s and 70s he has won six renewals of the Queen Mother Champion Chase. Current trainer Paul Nicholls is following with 4 wins. The latter won both in 2008 and 2009 with Master Minded.
