The Queen Mother Champion Chase has been held since 1959, and the very first winner of that Cheltenham racecourse held event was Quita Que a 10year old rode by the jokey Bunny Cox and trained by Dan Moore and owned by Mrs D. R. Brand.
However, last year in 2017 it was Special Tiara another 10 year old horse rode by Noel Fehily and trained by Henry de Bromhead and owned by Sally Rowley-Williams that won that race, and this year there are plenty or runners and riders who will be hoping they can win it too!
If you are interested in having a punt on the Queen Mother Champion Chase then maybe you should make use of one of the many ante post betting markets that are currently open and active, for there sure is some value to be had by making use of them.
One thing I have discovered is that quite a number of betting sites and bookmakers are offering a no runner no bet type of rule in place on bets struck via their ante post markets on the Queen Mother Champion Chase, and as such if you place a bet and your chosen horse doesn’t run, for any reason, then you get your stake money back.
With that in mind if you do decide to place a bet nice and early, and also note that race is all scheduled to run on March the 14th at 15:30, then only place a bet at a betting site or with a bookmaker that does offer a no runner no bet type of rule, or you risk losing your stake money if the horse is withdrawn!
Big Bets Being Placed on Altior
For a great many punters, there is only one horse that could win the Queen Mother Champion Chase this year and that is Altior, in fact the volume of money flooding the betting platforms and betting markets for that horse has seen its odds drop down to just 4/6
As such many punters are being forced to have to look at placing an each way bet to get some kind of value out of betting on that race, and if they do then sadly most betting sites and bookmakers are offering just one fifth the odds on the first three placed runners in regards to the place part of such a bet!
But having said all of that, there are three horses that could put this race out of the bag so to speak and they include Min how is currently second favourite at odds of 11/4, also I wouldn’t put you off betting on Douvan at the current odds of 4/1 or possible consider placing a bet on Politologue at 6/1.
However, by placing an each way bet on any of those three horses isn’t going to see you cashing out a huge amount of cash if they do get placed, so perhaps a straight win bet is best on any of them.
The value does of course come when you look at some of the much higher odds available on the other runners in this race, and as such let me give you a quick run through of the other horses running and their current respective odds too.
Each Way Betting Possibilities on the Queen Mother Champion Chase
There are of course no shortages of horse that are on offer in this race that currently have odds of over 15/1 about then including but certainly not limited to Top Gamble at odds of 50/1, Tell Us More also at 50/1.
The Game Changer who also can be had at high odds of 50/1 and also Doctor Phoenix at 66/1, however those horses have very little chance if any of winning or even being placed in the top three positions of this race!
As such let me give you a quick insight into which are the most likely horses that are available at fairly reasonable odds that may just get placed, and as such may be the one you will be best off having an each way punt on.
Those horses do of course include Un De Sceaux at 8/1, Yorkhill, Fox Norton and Great Field who can all be had at odds of 10/1. A few others that with some luck in running may just scrape into one of the top three places on this race are Special Tiara and Top Notch both at 14/1 and for those of you feeling brave cost placing an each ay bet on either Charbel or Ar Ma at 25/1!
