Queen Mother Champion Chase Top TrainersBelow is a table of how some of the top trainers have fared in the last ten years in the Champion Chase:
|Trainer||Runners||Wins||Places||Win LSP||Each Way LSP|
|H De Bromhead||7||1||4||4.00||7.35|
Three wins apiece for Paul Nicholls and Nicky Henderson in the last ten renewals and five wins in total for Nicholls (also won this race with Azertyuiop in 2004 and Call Equiname in 1999) and four total wins for Henderson (also won in 1992 with Remittance Man).
Willie Mullins has been surprsingly poorly represented in this race and only last year's second, Un De Sceaux, has come into the race with a strong chance. 2016 Arkle winner Douvan could change all that if given the green light for this race and he is currently the short price favourite with most of the bookmakers.
Punters who are looking for a trainer to follow in this race outside of Nicholls, Henderson and Mullins could do worse than monitoring any runners from the Henry De Bromhead stable. The County Waterford based trainer has recorded one win (Sizing Europe 2011) and four other placed horses from just seven runners in the last ten seasons.
