Eider Chase Trends

The Eider Chase is run over a gruelling 4m1f trip at Newcastle racecourse and is a handicap race that is seen as another key Grand National trial ahead of the big Liverpool race the following month. In recent years the David Pipe-trained Comply Or Die (2008) is the most recent example of the winner of this race going onto land the Merseyside Marathon that same season.

Did you know – 15 of the last 17 winners were aged 10 or younger, while 11 of the last 17 successful horses came from the top three in the betting.

We take a look back at recent winners and give you all the key trends and stats to take into the 2022 renewal – this year run on Saturday 26th February.
