Queen Mother Champion Steeple Chase Betting Odds
The Betway Queen Mother Champion Steeple Chase – 15:30PM
The Queen Mother Champion Chase is the highlight of Ladies Day at the 2018 Cheltenham Festival and very much one of the most eagerly awaited Championship races of the year for National Hunt racing fans.
Last year, Henry De Bromhead won his second Queen Mother (first with Sizing Europe) with the 16/1 outsider Special Tiara, who was having his fourth crack at the race.
Pre-race favourite Douvan flopped on the day, while this brilliant jumper Special Tiara kept on rolling out in front and was never headed under a brilliant ride from jockey Noel Fehily. In 2018, Nicky Henderson is responsible for the current market leader and the horse we’re all expecting huge things from.
Altior hasn’t put a foot wrong in his two Cheltenham Festival starts. He is the Supreme Novice Hurdler, the Arkle winner and he is rightly approaching March as the warm favourite for the two mile feature chase of the week.
He is a brilliant racehorse and despite a less than perfect build up, is with the right trainer (Nicky Henderson) to stage a winning comeback where it matters most.
Paul Nicholls is responsible for the main danger in Tingle Creek winner Politologue, while Min and Yorkhill would be interesting contenders for Irish trainer Willie Mullins.
