Becher Chase Trends

The Becher Chase is run at Aintree racecourse over the historic Grand National-style fences and, therefore, provides punters with some early-season clues ahead of the world’s most famous steeplechase.

Run over the 3m2f the race has been won six times by trainer Nigel Twiston-Davies, while Silver Birch and Amberleigh House are recent winners of the Becher Chase then went on later in their careers to land the Grand National too.

The Robert Walford-trained Walk In The Mill has won the last two runnings and could be back for more in 2020.

We look back at recent winners and gives you the key trends to look out for ahead of the 2020 renewal, this year run on Saturday 5th December.

    Andy – it’s great you’ve put the Becher and Tingle Creek up but are there no trends this week for the supporting races? I’m a big fan of the Saturday TV trends column – in fact it was what first brought me to the geegeez site as I was unable to find decent trends coverage elsewhere and my copies of David Myers Trends books were getting very battered and outdated.
