The 2021 race looks competitive and there are several contenders including Altior who won the race in 2018 and 2019. However, the Queen Mother Champion Chase tips in 2021 are Chacun Pour Soi and Politologue.

Chacun Pour Soi

Chacun Pour Soi is trained by Willie Mullins and owned by Mrs S Ricci but her husband, Rich, pays the training bills. They have won many Grade 1 hurdle races at Cheltenham but never the Champion Chase. Chacun Pour Soi was prominent in the Queen Mother Champion Chase odds last year but was withdrawn just before the race. The gelding has shown the form that justifies being amongst the favourites in 2021 and one of the Champion Chase tips for the race.

Chacun Pour Soi is aged 9 so is the right age to win the Queen Mother Champion Chase. The winning horse over the last five years was aged 8 to 10. The favourite in the latest Queen Mother Champion Chase odds has won six races from 10 starts and amassed over £276,000 in prize money. He has an Official Rating of 174 and best Racing Post Ratings of 176.

Those numbers mean Chacun Pour Soi is rightly one of the Queen Mother Champion Chase favourites 2021 and included in the Queen Mother Champion Chase tips.

Politologue

Politologue won the Queen Mother Champion Chase last year. The race has a history of producing multiple winners and Sprinter Sacre and Altior won the race twice over the last decade. Politologue is aged 10 so is another runner in the right age group for the Champion Chase at Cheltenham.

The horse was not the favourite in the Queen Mother Champion Chase odds in 2020 but deserved to win the Grade 1 contest. Politologue has the form to justify being one of the Queen Mother Champion Chase favourites 2021 and tips.

The 2020 winner is trained by Paul Nicholls who has an outstanding record in the Queen Mother Champion Chase. The regular jockey is Harry Cobden but Harry Skelton has ridden the horse in his last two races. Politologue has an Official Rating of 169 and best Racing Post Rating of 173.

The horse is not far behind Chacun Pour Soi on these numbers so is rightly one of the Queen Mother Champion Chase tips. The 2020 winner is good enough to be one of the Queen Mother Champion Chase favourites 2021 and could win the race again.
