Did Trends Win The Last Cross Country Chase?

With last year's winner Tiger Roll coming in to the Cross Country Chase in winning form, there could only be one trends pick.

The nine-year-old had ticked all the boxes a year earlier when romping to his first win in the race and in even better shape was sent off at 5/4f in the 2019 Cheltenham betting odds.

Second Urgent De Gregaine, second in 2018, had only run once since (144 days ago), making him much harder to shortlist on trends, but third Josies Orders did fit the bill, with several course-and-distance wins and plenty of good recent form.

The only other horse that made the trends shortlist was Auvergnat, who had been fourth in 2017 and 2018. He had gone on to win the famed La Touche Cup over the banks at the Punchestown Festival, and went on to land the Paddy Power Chase at Leopardstown's Christmas Festival, lining up fresh.

Unfortunately the nine-year-old went no further than 26 fences, dropping back quickly after the 23rd.

How Tiger Roll won the 2019 Cross Country Chase

For the fourth time, Grand National hero Tiger Roll romped to Cheltenham Festival victory with a comprehensive win in the 2019 Cross Country Chase.

The former Triumph Hurdle and National Hunt Chase hero was sent off the 5/4 favourite to win back-to-back cross country races and duly obliged under jockey Keith Donoghue.
