Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase

The Queen Mother Champion Chase is a Grade 1 National Hunt chase for 5 year old and above horses.

It is run over a distance of 2 miles at the Cheltenham Festival and provides a supreme test of jumping at high speed.

The race was first run in 1959 as the Champion Chase. The Queen Mother's name was added to the title in 1980, the year of her 80th birthday.

The 2007 running was the first time the race had a sponsor and was run as the "Seasons Holidays Queen Mother Champion Chase".
