Glenfarcias Cross Country Chase Tips - Cheltenham 2021

Cross Country Chase 2021 Tips – Day 2, 15:40

The Cross Country divides opinion every year, with most punters tending to sit the race out and just enjoy the unique specatacle. 2020 saw a very impressive winner in Easyisland, and he seems sure to take a lot of beating in 2021 with more improvement in the tank. Perhaps the Welsh maestro Christian Williams could spring a surprise with his warrior Potters Corner, who shaped nicely on his seasonal debut over these fences and has been aimed at the March prize every since by his very shrewd connections.

Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase 2021 Preview

The Grade 1 Queen Mother Champion Chase is the highlight of Wednesday at the Festival, with the best two mile chasers providing a thrilling spectacle. Willie Mullins Chacun Pour Soi has been a very strong favourite for this prize over the last few months (currently a best priced 10/11f), really impressing in winning twice at Leopardstown at the top level under confident rides from Paul Townend.

His three main rivals from the UK all have plenty to prove, with Altior looking completely gone when disappointing at Kempton on his return, Nube Negra a flat track glider who may not get up the hill, and the reigning champion Politolouge surely vulnerable after winning a dismal renewal in 2020.

Cross Country Chase Winners

The Cross Country race has been dominated by the brilliant Tiger Roll in recent years, with impressive wins on the bridle in 2018 and 2019. He looked on the wane in 2020 when turned over at 8/11f, and his conqueror that day Essysland seems sure to be very hard to beat in 2021. The race itself was added to the Festival in 2005 and does provide some variety, run on the unique inner course and providing an opportunity for specialists in this uniqu event to come over from France and Ireland.
