What Happened Last Year?

The 2023 renewal of this race was all about the matchup between Shishkin and the reigning champion Energumene.

Sadly, Shishkin struggled in the early part of the race and was pulled up with what turned out to be an injury, leaving Energumene to run out a comfortable winner by eight and a half lengths under jockey Paul Townend, becoming only the third horse to defend the Champion Chase since 1997.

Champion Chase – Key Race Stats

  • 10 of the last 12 winners were aged between seven, eight, or nine
  • The last 12 winners all had at least 1 Grade 1 win before winning the race
  • Eight of the previous 12 winners had won before at Cheltenham

A race where course specialists have dominated, with Nicky Henderson winning the race five times since 2012, with four of them coming from Sprinter Sacre and Altior.

However, trainer Willie Mullins has won the Champion Chase for the last two years with the top-class chaser Energumene.
