Past Tingle Creek winners often figure high up in the Tingle Creek betting markets each season, while the average Tingle Creek odds in the last 18 runnings is 5/2 (3.50).

Looking at the 2020 Tingle Creek odds, there is every chance we could see the last three winners of the Tingle Creek Chase line-up again. The 2019 winner, Defi Du Seuil, will, of course, be popular in the betting as he looks to defend his title and become the first back-to-back Tingle Creek Chase winner since the mighty Kauto Star, who won the 2005 and 2006 renewals.

The 2018 Tingle Creek winner – Altior – could also head here again, while the 2017 victor – Politologue – is another past champion that would have this race as a target.

Looking at the Irish challenge, it’s a race that the powerful Willie Mullins yard have won just the once – Un De Sceaux (2016) – but if they send over Chacun Pour Soi this improving young 2m chaser would certainly have it’s supporters.

Tingle Creek Runners

Tingle Creek runners in recent years have also used this race for preparation ahead of running in the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.

In recent times, we’ve seen Tingle Creek winners – Master Minded (2008), Moscow Flyer (2004), Sprinter Sacre (2012), Sire de Grugy (2013), Dodging Bullets (2014) and Altior (2018) follow-up in the Cheltenham Queen Mother Champion Chase that same season.

Looking at the 2020 Tingle Creek runners there are some old favourites that could line-up for the latest renewal, while in recent years, it’s also a race that’s been dominated by some of the biggest jumps trainers in the UK – including Nicky Henderson, Philip Hobbs and Gary Moore, but it’s Paul Nicholls that has had the most Tingle Creek Chase winners – Since 1999, the Paul Nicholls yard have won the Tingle Creek Chase a staggering 10 times.

Form: This popular chaser has won the Tingle Creek Chase in 2018 and has landed two Cheltenham Champion Chases during his career. He’s not getting any younger at the age of 10 (will be 11 in January 2021), but his record over fences is second to none and with a very light campaign last season due to injury there could still be more to come.

Form: This 7 year-old scrambled home to win the 2019 Tingle Creek by a neck 12 months ago but followed that up with a win in the Clarence House Chase at Ascot. He’s the current Tingle Creek champion so certainly deserves a lot of respect, but those looking to take him on will look to the fact he flopped as the hot odds-on favourite in the 2020 Cheltenham Champion Chase. He’s a player, but has a bit to prove again during his career – but he’s bounced back before in the past and at the age of 7 still has time on his side.

Go to Politologue
Form: This popular grey was one of the Paul Nicholls-trained 10 winners of the Tingle Creek Chase – he landed the prize in 2017. However, he could only manage fifth in the race in 2019 and was beaten 18 lengths by the winner – Defi Du Seuil. But his supporters that stuck by him were rewarded with a top win in the 2020 Cheltenham Champion Chase. He’s certainly got the ability, but those looking to take his Tingle Creek odds on will suggest he’s not the most consistent at this level.

Tingle Creek Tips

The last back-to-back Tingle Creek winner was Kauto Star (2005 & 2006), but since then we have seen horses like Sire De Grugy, Master Minded and Twist Magic as two-time Tingle Creek winners – just not in following seasons.

With trainer Paul Nicholls having trained the Tingle Creek winner 10 times then anything he trains is often regarded at a solid Tingle Creek tip, while the Tingle Creek betting in recent times suggests to look for a horse at the head of the market. A massive 16 of the last 17 Tingle Creek winners returned just 6/1 or shorter in the Tingle Creek betting market.
