Tingle Creek Chase

The Tingle Creek Chase is one of the 2 mile steeplechase highlights of the national hunt season. The race takes place in early December at Sandown Racecourse and attracts some of the highest rated chasers in national hunt racing.

The Tingle Creek Chase is run over a distance 2 miles, with racehorses required to clear 13 fences during the course of the race. The event is open to 5 year old and above racehorses, and tends to feature racehorses who will go on to compete in the Queen Mother Champion Chase.

First run in 1979, the Tingle Creek Chase is named in honour of Tingle Creek, a popular Irish racehorse who earned widespread recognition after a series of brilliant performances at Sandown in the 1970s.

Tingle Creek Chase Betting

The Tingle Creek Chase is the first Grade 1 2 mile race of the national hunt season, providing an early glimpse of the horses likely to compete in the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the end of the season. The field for the race tends to be small, with fewer than ten entries the norm. There is usually one stand-out entry in the field, who’ll top both the ratings and the odds tables.

The Tingle Creek Chase reliably rewards class racehorses, and the highest rated horse in the field wins the race with rare exceptions. In most cases this horse is also the antepost favourite, and backing the favourite has paid off as a strategy in this race in recent years – even the places tend to be fairly true to the ratings of the horses. Keep it simple for this race and back the highest rated horse in the field.
