Cross Country Chase Tips
The race is set to be one of the most competitive of the festival. You will be able to see the Cross Country Chase favourites 2021 below, as well as some key facts that could be pivotal when deciding on the horse to back.
Easysland was the horse that upset many Cross Country Chase tips last year. The seven-year-old was able to claim the win over heavy favourite Tiger Roll in convincing fashion.
In last year’s race, the David Cottin-trained horse went on to win by a clear 17 lengths from the dual Grand National winner. That was the biggest win of Easysland’s career and made it two wins from two at the home of jumps racing.
However, his perfect record since moving to England from France has ended already this season. He was well-beaten by Kingswell Theatre in the Cross Country at Cheltenham at the November meeting.
However, there were still positives to take from that first appearance of the season from the seven-year-old.
Tiger Roll will be among the sentinel Cross Country Chase tips made this year. The two-time Grand National winner will be looking for a return to form after a disappointing previous two runs.
The eleven-year-old was pulled up in the Cross Country in November after the 20th. There is every indication that this will be the last time we see the Gordon Elliott-trained horse at Cheltenham, but he will need to be at his very best to win this.
Tiger Roll’s performance in this race will likely indicate whether connections will be targeting a record-equalling third Grand National win in April.
