Arkle Chase History


The Arkle Chase took over from the Cotswold Chase in 1969 when taken out by Chatham for trainer Fred Rimell and it pays tribute to Arkle, a three-time winner of the Cheltenham Gold Cup throughout the 1960’s. 

Currently sponsored by the Racing Post, the Arkle Chase is a great lead-in race to many of the Cheltenham Festival feature races, including the Queen Mother Champion Chase. Several Arkle Chase winners have gone on to win the feature chase event, including Moscow Flyer, Voy Pour Ustedes and Azertyuiop. 

The favourites have had a good record in this race and none more so than Un de Sceaux, which won at an odds-on quote in 2015. That win gave Willie Mullins his first of three wins in a four-year span, which included 2018 winner Footpad. 

Mullins doesn’t hold the record for most wins, however, with that going to Nicky Henderson with six wins. His latest came in 2017 with champion chaser Altior. 

Much like many other Cheltenham Festival races, jockey Ruby Walsh has the record with four wins. That’s the same as Barry Geraghty who scored back-to-back wins in 2012 and 2013 with Sprinter Sacre and Simonsig respectively. 

The race is open to five-year-old entrants but there hasn’t been a five-year-old winner since Voy Pour Ustedes in 2006.
