2022 Ascot Chase Preview

The Ascot Chase is a Grade One race open to runners aged 5yo or older scheduled to take place in February of each year at the Ascot racecourse. It is run over an extended 2m5f and the runners will have to face a total of seventeen fences during which will consist of three open ditches. This race was first run in 1995 over two furlongs shorter, the trip was upped a furlong when the race was temporarily moved to Lingfield in 2005 & 2006. When the race returned to Ascot in 2007, the trip was once again upped, this time to the current distance.

The runner which holds the record over past 20 renewals for the slowest time in the race was set in the 2020 renewal when Riders Onthe Storm from Nigel Twiston-Davies who under the guidance of the Sam Twiston-Davies, won in a time of 5:45.57, whilst at the other end of the spectrum, Monets Garden, trained by Nicky Richards and ridden by Tony Dobbin set the quickest time of 4:50.40 in the 2007 renewal.

These are the top three quickest run Ascot Chase over the last 20 renewals:

  • 2007 - Monets Garden (4:50.40)
  • 2002 - Tresor De Mai (5:01.60)
  • 2004 - Hand Inn Hand (5:06.20)

How competitive is the Ascot Chase market? When looking at the over-rounds for the last 20 renewals, the most competitive market was in 2002 when the race had an over-round of 107%. The race in 2008 was a race which was most in the bookie's favour with an over-round of 118%, whilst on average over the last 20 renewals of the Ascot Chase, the over-round has been 112% which means the bookie expects to pay out £100 for every £112 which is bet.

Looking at the future form, is the winner worth following next time out? From the past 20 if you had followed the winner of the Ascot Chase next time out then you would have back a total of 4 winners. Backing all 18 runners who have been out since to win at SP next time out, would have returned an LSP of -2.87.
