Classic Chase Trends

The Classic Chase is a 3m5f gruelling Grade 3 handicap that is run at Warwick racecourse every season in January and provides punters with another chance to see some potential Aintree Grand National hopefuls on show – in 2017 the Lucinda Russell-trained One For Arthur won the Classic Chase before going onto land the Grand National at Aintree in April.

12 months ago in 2021 the Alan King-trained Notachance won the race with jockey Tom Cannon doing the steering. That win was trainer Alan King’s third success in the race since 2008.

Did you know? 15 of the last 16 Classic Chase winners raced in the last 6 weeks.
