    Info CLASSIC CHASE TRENDS 2015

    The Betfred Classic Chase, which takes place at Warwick on Saturday 10th January, is a grade 3 handicap chase run over 3M 5F and is generally a good test of a horse’s Grand National credentials.





    Below we take a look at the trends for 10 runnings since 2002:

    Age (Win-Place-Runners)
    6yo: 0-0-2

    9yo: 3-3-36
    10yo: 1-1-23
    11yo: 1-2-18
    12yo+: 1-1-14
    No strong trend on ages, though all 6 winners aged 9+ were Irish bred, 2 of 4 winners aged 8 or younger were French bred.

    Breeding


    Irish bred: 7-11-81
    French bred: 2-5-27

    Irish bred runners have won 7 of the last 10 runnings, though they have represented around 60% of the total runners.
    French bred horses aged 8 or younger have a record of 2-5-16 whereas those aged 9 or older have a record of 0-0-11.

    Top weight: 4FPB0P36152 (1-2-11)

    In past 7 runnings, the trend has been towards higher rated runners:
    horses rated 133 or higher: 6-8-47
    horses rated 132 or lower: 1-6-48

    Venetia Williams (1-2-8) has gained 1 win & 3 places from her last 9 runners.
    Colin Tizzard (1-0-2) trained Hey Big Spender to win this in 2012 & Emma Lavelle (1-0-2) won it last year with Shotgun Paddy.
    Mark Bradstock (0-1-1) saddled the runner-up last year.

    Price


    No very strong trend on the prices, with 7 of 10 winners priced between 9/2 & 11/1 and the other 3 going off at 14/1, 18/1 & 25/1.
    Favourites (1-4-11) have won just one running since 2002, giving a level stakes loss of 4.50.
