The Victor Chandler Chase

Grade 1 Steeplechase

Ascot racecourse : 2m1f




   

The Victor Chandler Chase . A Grade one race over 2 miles and 1 furlong at Ascot.

Although this race actually had a dreadful start when the first two races in 1987 and 1988 were abandoned because of poor weather (Frost and fog) the first time is was run in 1989 was one of the best races I have ever seen. Then a handicap run over a slightly shorter distance of 2 miles saw Desert Orchid the bold front running grey taking on the very smart Panto Prince and giving him a stone and 8 pounds, over a distance that was shorter than ideal for Dessie and getting the better of Panto Prince holding on to win by a head..

The race was changed from a handicap and up-rated to Grade 1 status and a further furlong added to the distance in 2007.

Run 6/7 weeks and at a similar distance to races at the Cheltenham festival this race is often seen as a good pointer for the festival
