Savills Chase Trends

Staged at Leopardstown racecourse, Ireland, the Grade One Savills Chase (formerly the Lexus Chase) is run over a distance of 3m and is often seen as a decent guide ahead of the Cheltenham Gold Cup, run later that season.

Some great names in recent years to land both races are Denman (2007/08) and Best Mate (2003/04), while considering the contest is staged in Ireland, we’ve actually seen 8 UK-based horses come over and win the prize in the last 20 years.

12 months ago we saw the Henry De Bromhead-trained A Plus Tard win the race by ½ a length from Kemboy - the winner went onto finish a gallant runner-up in the Cheltenham Gold Cup at the Festival.

Here at GeeGeez, we take a look back at recent winners and gives you the key trends ahead of the 2021 renewal – this year run on Tuesday 28th December.
