The Grand Annual Chase is the final race of the four day Cheltenham Festival and is the also the oldest race to be run during the four days. It is a class B grade 3 handicap chase run over two miles and 110 yards, open to 5 year old and older chasers. Le Prezien (15/2) was produced to perfection by Barry Geraghty to bring the curtain down on the Cheltenham Festival with victory in this race last year. Find below our Cheltenham 2019 Grand Annual Chase race preview, with odds, tips, predictions, trends, free bets and betting promotions.

The Grand Annual Chase (also known as the Johnny Henderson Grand Annual Chase) concludes the DAY 4 and the Cheltenham Festival. It's a Grade 3 National Hunt chase, run over two miles and half-a-furlong, for horses aged five years and upwards, with a prize pure of £110,000. It is the shortest distance handicap chase run at the Festival, featuring 14 fences to be jumped.

A thrilling finale, with a huge field of two mile handicappers whizzing round. The betting is usually very competitive as it generally involves a lot of casual punters.

And now we'll take a closer look at this year's Grand Annual Chase 2019 and try to determine which horse is likely to prevail.

MAGIC SAINT finished well behind winner Hell’s Kitchen in the Handicap Chase at Ascot in December, in a race that also features Nicky Henderson’s Janika. He then won the recent Handicap Chase at Wincanton and his price has shortened since that impressive performance.

WHATSWRONGWITHYOU have won on both of his outings so far in 2019. Last time out he beat Amour De Nuit by 17 lengths and that will have done his confidence a world of good.

NOT ANOTHER MUDDLE was heavily backed at Sandown on middle February having finished a solid third on his reappearance at the same course earlier that month. He won in style at odds of 6/4, recording his third vicotry in his last 4 outings.

LE PREZIEN won last year's Grand Annual and he will go for that race again. He finished seventh on his latest run at Sandown, but doesn't really want it too soft. JP McManus’ eight-year-old has been lightly campaigned since and is only a pound higher so a repeat maybe on the cards with a strong gallop guaranteed again.

BUN DORAN won here on the old course at Cheltenham back in Novemberby 8 lengths. A month later, Bun Doran returned to Prestbury Park and looked set to claim a second successive victory, only to be denied by a fantastic late charge by Ozzie The Oscar.

BRELAN D'AS has won twice including last time out at Fakenham and has had plenty of experience over fences having had 8 starts.

GINO TRAIL finished second behind Le Prezien in this race last year. Arrives here running from the same handicap mark, but he was behind Magic Saint at Wincanton last time out

MIND'S EYE has been running in Grade 1 novice chases so is clearly considered capable of a classy performance. He was fifth in a handicap chase at Leopardstown last time out, shaping as though this stiffer track will suit, and his current mark looks well within reach.

MARRACUDJA failed to win in his last 5 starts, but he was beaten just a nose into second at Wetherby last time out. He returns after a wind operation and could be considered a genuine win contender.

TOP GAMBLE finished third (off a six-pound higher mark) in this race last year. His form since that run has been disappointing and we don't expect him to finish in the frame.

MR MEDIC, a 20/1 winner of a handicap chase at Ascot on his seasonal reappearance, has only finished a modest 6th in two subsequent starts, however, and he arrives here still 7 pounds above his last winning mark.

This is a very open race and there are a lot of horse who should be taken into account - CAID DU LIN, DIAKALI, FOREST BIHAN, THEO, TREE OF LIBERTY and THEFLYINGPORTRAIT just to mentions few of them.
