Arkle Chase


A Grade One Chase for Novices over 2 miles on the Old Course.

We are on the look out for a future star of sprint chasing. Recent Arkle winners Sprinter Sacre, Sizing Europe, Voy Per Ustedes, Moscow Flyer, Azertyuiop, Flagship Uberalles and Klairon Davis have all gone on to win the Queen Mother Champion Chase.

Arkle Trends Analysis

The trend to focus on here is the 142 rating over hurdles. Not that many horses rated 142+ over hurdles will go over fences and if they meet the age requirement they could well be worth considering.
