2017 Queen Mother Champion Chase Betting Tips PT 2- By A.J. Ryder on February 8, 2017 18:08 GMT
Colin Tizzard has an interesting option in Fox Norton who comes in with a price anywhere from about 9/2 all the way up to an 8/1 listing. Despite his third place finish to Douvan in the Arkle last year, you'll find him emerging as a true Cheltenham specialist as he has rattled off three victories over the course in a row over his last three outings.
He has been out twice this year, taking a Class 2 handicap chase and then taking a step up in the Shloer Chase, which is a Grade 2 effort. He has been unraced since November and comes into the contest as a very interesting option proven over course and distance. Fox Norton can be backed in the neighbourhood of about 6/1 to 7/1.
Un De Sceaux has been a talented contender who has been on the scene for a while but he has proven to be expensive for punters to back at times as he has failed to come up with the goods on a few occasions where he was taking a lot of money – last year against Sprinter Sacre being one of the most prominent examples of that currently on offer.
Punters will find Un De Sceaux trading anywhere from a 7/1 margin all the way up to a 10/1 margin and it's worth noting that he is much more likely to run in the Ryanair Chase – particularly if Douvan opts for this one – since he is trading at a 3/1 margin to capture that contest.
There are a few others who are in the mix for the Queen Mother Champion Chase right now but all of their odds tend to be hovering around the 16/1 to 20/1 margin right now and many of them boast the likelihood that they will be opting for an easier path to victory.
