Ascot Chase Betting 2024, Best Betting Offers, Odds & Tips

Who will land the final Grade 1 before Cheltenham?


Run annually at the Berkshire track, the Ascot Chase is run over 2 miles and 5 furlongs with 17 fences to be negotiated, and it is the final Grade 1 race in the UK before the Cheltenham Festival.

Run over the intermediate trip of 2 miles and 5 furlongs, it is traditionally used as a stepping stone to the Ryanair Chase and Cheltenham Gold Cup and typically attracts a high-quality line-up.

Cue Card landed success in the Ascot Chase in 2013 before winning the Ryanair Chase at Cheltenham the following month.

Nicky Henderson and Paul Nicholls have each trained the winner of the race on four occasions, with Henderson landing last year’s renewal with Shishkin.

Ascot Chase Betting Tips & Stats Guide


What Happened Last Year?

The Nicky Henderson-trained Shishkin destroyed the field in the 2023 Ascot Chase, running out a 16-length winner at his first attempt over 2 miles and 5 furlongs.

Always looking comfortable under jockey Nico de Boinville, Shishkin took the lead two fences from home and powered clear from 2nd-placed Pic D’Orhy.

That performance saw Shishkin head to Cheltenham as a short-price to win the Ryanair Chase, but he could only finish runner-up to Envoi Allen at Prestbury Park.
