We take a look through the ante-post betting for the feature Championship race on day two of the 2021 Cheltenham Festival and offer readers our ante-post 2021 Champion Chase tips.

The Queen Mother Champion Chase is the feature race on day two, more commonly known as Ladies’ Day, at the Cheltenham Festival. In 2020, Politologue made all to claim a surprise victory in his historic race for Paul Nicholls and jubilant owner, John Hales.

I’ve cast my eye through the ante-post betting for the 2021 Cheltenham Festival and come down on the side of a former Festival winner.

Having been billed as the race of the week in the build-up to the Cheltenham Festival, the 2020 Champion Chase turned out to be a bit of a damp squib. 

Both Chacun Pour Soi and Altior withdrew from the race after suffering setbacks. This left Defi Du Seuil as the short-priced favourite, but it was apparent after just a few furlongs that Philip Hobbs’ charge was not on a going day, and Politologue made all to seal a shock win.

Given that the top two in the market had come out of the race, I’m shocked that Henry De Bromhead didn’t switch A PLUS TARD to the Champion Chase. As it was, De Bromhead and Cheveley Park stuck to their guns, throwing A Plus Tard into the Ryanair, where he ran well, but finished a little one-paced back in third.

When Rachael Blackmore’s mount beat Chacun Pour Soi at Leopardstown over Christmas, he didn’t outstay his rival. A Plus Tard showed a lovely turn of foot down the home straight and had more than enough two-mile pace to leave his rival for dead.

I would be amazed if A Plus Tard wasn’t kept over two miles next term, and the former Festival winner has proven how well he handles the track at Cheltenham. At 16/1, he looks a fantastic each-way punt in the Champion Chase at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival.

Verdict

Henry De Bromhead may regret not targetting the 2020 Champion Chase with A Plus Tard. I'm hoping he'll be kept over two miles in 2020/21 and could shape up into a live contender for this historic race.
