Queen Mother Champion Chase Betting Preview

The Cheltenham Festival 2018 could well be a case of Ireland vs Nicky Henderson…

And among the biggest warriors in Nicky Henderson’s battle chest is the Queen Mother Champion Chase favourite Altior who will bid to achieve what very few horses do in winning at the Cheltenham Festival for three consecutive years.

The 8-year-old Altior is unbeaten in five hurdle races and six chase starts. In 2016 that impressive record included victory in the Skybet Supreme Novice Hurdle and last year the Racing Post Arkle Novice Chase, both are major races at the Cheltenham Festival.  

But for Cheltenham 2018 it is the two-mile Queen Mother Champion Chase race, the headline event on Day 2 of the Festival (otherwise known as Cheltenham Ladies Day), which Altior is being aimed at this time round.

Top jumps trainer Nicky Henderson knows exactly what’s required to win a Queen Mother Chase, having landed the race for three of the last six years and it’s top-priced 11/8 with Ladbrokes (at the time of writing) that he betters that record in 2018.

Given Altior has started favourite for ten of his last 11 starts, odds-on on eight occasions, 11/8 is an enormous price in a race which is lacking much of its traditional strength and depth in 2018.
