Queen Mother Champion Chase Betting Tips

The leading trio in the market here have clearly been head-and-shoulders above the chasing pack, and any of the three would be worthy winners of the Queen Mother. Chacun Pour Soi may be the best jumper of the three and won nicely enough at the Dublin Racing Festival. However, I was expecting Willie Mullins’ charge to pull further clear of Min than he eventually did that day, and Cheltenham remains an unknown for this talented, but clearly fragile sort.

Before he was declared as a non runner, Altior had proven he still had the engine and the appetite for the fight when winning the Game Spirit Chase. Sadly, for Nicky Henderson and his team, performances over the past 18 months show Altior is not the formidable force he once was. I think it’s time the four-time Festival winner passed the torch onto a younger rival, and DEFI DU SEUIL will be waiting to receive his crown with open arms.

God, this horse has some gears, and Barry Geraghty knows exactly how to use them. Defi Du Seuil comfortably saw off Lostintranslation with a powerful late burst to win the Marsh Novices’ Chase last year, and Philip Hobbs’ star was barely extended in seeing off Un De Sceaux at Ascot in the Clarence House. Defi Du Seuil is unbeaten this season, he goes on any ground and boasts plenty of winning experience at Cheltenham. He’s my selection in the 2020 Champion Chase.
