Dial-a-Bet Chase - 27th December, 2014

Alan King's Uxizandre was a fine winner of the Shloer Chase at Cheltenham last time out and the Barbury Castle inmate is set to head over to Leopardstown on Saturday afternoon for what looks a fascinating renewal of the Grade 1 Dial-A-Bet Chase.

Aiming to enhance his claims as a potential Champion Chase contender the six-year-old will need to improve on that success at Prestbury Park, but he shaped like there's still more to come this season and he has to be earmarked for the shortlist.

Ballycasey returned to the track with a victory at Gowran Park and Willie Mullins's star has shown that on his day he is a real class act, and whilst like Uxizandre he will need to improve for his first win he oozes quality and has to be a major player.

Hidden Cyclone has tasted the turf on his last two starts, so Shark Hanlon will be desperate for his challenger to at least complete the course and he could figure if ironing out his jumping mistakes, whilst Simply Ned has some smart form at his best and will be an interesting runner heading over to the Emerald Isle for Nicky Richards.

Of the others who could take their chance, Sizing Europe is entered, but he failed to land a blow behind King George VI Chase hope Champagne Fever last time out, with the likes of Bright New Dawn and Felix Yonger adding more depth to a cracking entry list.

Dial-a-Bet Chase History

The Dial-a-Bet Chase is a Grade One race run at Leopardstown over two miles, one furlong for horses aged four years or older and is widely regarded as a trial for the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.

Established in 1998 the inaugural running was won by the Ted Walsh-trained and Ruby Walsh-ridden Papillon and the father and son duo teamed up again in 2000 with the same horse and the Millennium year was to be an historical one for the Walsh family as their inmate managed to win the Aintree Grand National.

However, this race is often used for potential Champion Chase contenders at the Cheltenham Festival and the illustrious roll of honour in the 2000's has shown some horses have used this race as a stepping stone to the two-mile contest at Prestbury Park.

Moscow Flyer was a dual winner of the Dial-a-Bet Chase for trainer Jessica Harrington in 2002 and 2003 with the latter of those years being the highlight as the then nine-year-old went on to win a plethora of top class races including the Tied Cottage Chase, Fortria Chase, Tingle Creek Chase and most importantly the Queen Mother Champion Chase.

Historically attracting small but select fields, the race still continues to lure the leading Irish chasing speedsters and Big Zeb is another who has won this event twice and emulated Moscow Flyer by also adding the Champion Chase to his CV in a stellar career.
