Did Trends Win The Last Ultima Handicap Chase?
Applying the Ultima Handicap Chase trends last year, genuinely narrowed the field to only the winner The Conditional.
Trainer David Bridgwater's charge was the only runner who ticked all of the 'Top 5' trends. On 139, the eight-year-old was also on a preferable handicap rating, and got bonus points for his only handicap chase victory coming over course and distance.
Second-placed Kildisart had won two handicap chases, which made him more exposed that the last 10 winners.
The calibre of horse in this race is increasing, but still only two horses rated higher than 148 have won, and Kildisart lined up rated 150.
The Paul Nolan-trained Discorama, who finished third, was rated bang on 148, but had not won over further than 2m3f.
Fellow 11-2 favourite Vinndication had only run once in the past year, and though his last run was an impressive win in a 3m handicap chase, it was more than 100 days before Cheltenham.
All trends points towards a necessity for winners of the Ultima Handicap Chase to have more racing under their belt. You took a big chance if you bet on him, especially as he carried topweight.

How Beware The Conditional Won 2020's Ultima Handicap Chase
Dour stayer The Conditional jumped the last in front and answered every call from jockey Brendan Powell to win the 2020 Ultima Handicap Chase by a neck.
The eight-year-old had won over course and distance on his first handicap chase outing back in October, and had since finished second in the prestigious Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury.
2.50 CHELTENHAM - 2020 ULTIMA HANDICAP CHASE RESULT
- The Conditional 15/2
- Kildisart 10/1
- Discorama 11/2j
- Vinndication 11/2j
He was well beaten last time out in the 2m5f Classic Chase at Warwick, but trainer David Bridgwater bounced him back to form with his second application of cheekpieces, and a 59-day break.
Kildisart had every chance after the last, but could not quite reach the winner, finishing two and a quarter lengths of the less experienced Discorama, and topweight Vinndication.
