The feature race on day two of the Cheltenham Festival is the Queen Mother Champion Chase, a Grade 1 steeplechase run over 2 miles on the main racecourse at Prestbury Park. Horses competing in the race are five-years-old and above, and are required to jump twelve fences during the race. In the 2018 renewal, Nicky Henderson’s Altior (at Evens) won the day’s feature race from Min as Douvan fell.

QUEEN MOTHER CHAMPION CHASE BETTING PREVIEW 

The highlight on day two of the Cheltenham Festival meeting is the Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase. It's a Grade 1 chase covering two miles, for horses aged five years and upwards. With 12 fences to be jumped, this contest is a great test of speed and jumping ability. It is the most prestigious minimum distance chase in national hunt racing and involves a prize purse of £320,000. Traditionally the race has fewer entrants than the other grade one Cheltenham events. We have a very hot favourite at this stage in the form of reigning champion Altior who has proven unbeatable during his career.

With such top horses expected to run the 2019 Champion Chase be prepared to see plenty of excitement during the race and the potential for drama.

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

ALTIOR is the shortest priced favourite of the festival and with good reason having gone unbeaten in 17 starts (12 from 12 over fences). He looked to be in trouble turning for home last year but powered up the hill to record a 7-length victory over Min. Altior has beaten the vast majority of his rivals already this season as he kicked off with a 4-length defeat of Un De Sceaux in the Tingle Creek at Sandown, won the Desert Orchid chase at the Kempton Christmas meeting 20 days later and landed the Clarence House Chase at Ascot last time out.

MIN has already finished runner up to Altior in two major championship races. He opened his account at Punchestown in December, beating the 2018 JLT winner Shattered Love in the process in the John Durkan Memorial Chase. He also scored at the Dublin Festival in the Dublin Chase over an extended two miles.

UN DE SCEAUX was handed a longer test during last year’s Cheltenham Festival but disappointed as the beaten favourite in the Ryanair Chase. This season, he  was runner-up to Altior in the Tingle Creek at Sandown in December, only beaten four lengths there.

Beaten 23 lengths in last season's Champion Chase, POLITOLOGUE has been tried over further distances than two miles this season. A Grade 2 winner at Ascot on his first start, he was then a decent fourth in the King George VI Chase at Kempton Park, but he was well beaten by stablemate Cyrname at Ascot last time out.

SCEAU ROYAL recorded an excellent win on the reappearance in the Grade 2 Shloer Chase at Cheltenham but was behind Altior and Un de Sceaux in the Tingle Creek at Sandown 13 days later. He bounced back to finish an excellent second in the Grade 2 Kingwell Hurdle at Wincanton last month.

SAINT CALVADOS beat Footpad at Naas on his seasonal debut but was then beaten 19 lengths by Altior in the Tingle Creek. At big price, he looks a good each-way option.

GOD'S OWN, another dual Grade 1 winner, has flourished in slightly calmer waters so far this term, winning the Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter in November. Anyway, he has regularly fallen short at this level.

A Grade 2 winner on his first start of the season, CASTLEGRACE PADDY has struggled to build on that victory . He finished fourth behind Simply Ned in Grade 1 company, Pat Fahy's charge was then a faller in top-class company last time out

The likes of ORDINARY WORLD and HELLS KITCHEN look to have no chance in this company.
