This race is a highlight of the Cheltenham horse race festival. The defending champion, Sprinter Sacre, is a favourite to win this contest. Last year, Sprinter Sacre made a tremendous effort to regain his title by defeating De Sceaux. In the next Queen Mother Chase race, Sacre would be expected to perform much better, but he will not be participating.
ALTIOR can reign supreme at the 2018 Cheltenham Festival. He was heavily fancied for the first race last year and for a good thing. Yorkhill and Min are also favourites, but this is our definitive bet.
