9 J: Daryl Jacob
T: Alan King
Won 4 of 5 starts as a novice. Further progress when landing the Shloer here on return but put in his place by Altior in Tingle Creek. Warmed up for this with a second back hurdling at Wincanton.

Analyst's Verdict

Impossible to see past the outstanding ALTIOR who continues to carry all before him and can stretch his unbeaten record over jumps to 18. Last year's runner-up Min is the one most likely to follow him home again. God's Own, who has a decent record at this meeting, is as good as ever at the age of 11 and may prove best of the remainder.

Established in 1959, the event is one of the highlights of the meeting and is considered to be the championship race for the two mile chasing division.

It was given its title in 1980, to mark the Queen Mother’s 80th birthday.

The race was not sponsored before 2007, but in recent years several firms have held naming rights, most recently Betway, who took over in 2015.

Tom Dreaper enjoyed plenty of success in the first few years of the race, winning it six times between 1960 and 1970, including twice with Fortria in 1960 and 1961, becoming the leading trainer in the race – a title which he still holds today.

However, both Paul Nicholls and Nicky Henderson trail Dreaper by just one win, and the latter could level that tally in 2019 with the current odds-on favourite for the race, and 2018 winner, Altior .

Several horses have won this race on more than one occasion over the years, though to date only one has won the Queen Mother Champion Chase on three occasions, the Michael Dickinson-trained Badsworth Boy, who won the race in 1983, 1984 and 1985 (Monica Dickinson trained him for the latter).

Like the rest of the Festival, the race wasn’t run in 2001 due to the foot and mouth outbreak, and since then several famous names have gone on to win the race in recent years.

Three horses have won the race on more than one occasion this century; the Jessica Harrington -trained Moscow Flyer (in 2003 and 2005), the Paul Nicholls -trained Master Minded (2008 and 2009) and the legendary Sprinter Sacre (in 2013 and 2016).

In terms of Timeform ratings, Sprinter Sacre’s performance to win the 2013 renewal, a run which earned him a Timeform performance rating of 192, is considered to be one of the greatest National Hunt performances in history, one which saw him annihilate a field of high quality, multiple graded winners, including the 2011 winner of the race Sizing Europe.

That run produced the highest Timeform rating over jumps in the modern era, edging out Kauto Star’s wide-margin win in the 2009 King George, and it has been bettered only by Arkle and Flyingbolt.

There have been several remarkable winners of the race this century, though, with Moscow Flyer (2005), Master Minded (2008) and Altior (2018) all achieving Timeform ratings on or around the 180 mark for their victories.

The most successful trainer in the race is Tom Dreaper, who has won it six times with Fortria (1960, 1961), Ben Stack (1964), Flyingbolt (1966), Muir (1969) and Straight Fort (1970).

The joint-most successful jockeys in the race are Pat Taaffe and Barry Geraghty , who both have five wins to their name.

Taaffe’s successes came on board Fortria (1960, 1961), Ben Stack (1964), Flyingbolt (1966) and Straight Fort (1970), whilst Geraghty’s wins in the Queen Mother Champion Chase came on board Moscow Flyer (2003, 2005), Big Zeb (2010), Finian's Rainbow (2012) and Sprinter Sacre (2013).
