Lexus Chase Stats
Wed, Jan 2nd, 2013

The Lexus Chase run at Leopardstown on the 28th of December is one of the more valuable staying chases run in Ireland.

The roll of honour includes three Cheltenham Gold Cup winners in the last decade. Synchronised (2011), Denman (2007) and Best Mate (2003) were the horses doubling up. All three were trained in GB and the overall record of British raiders is noteworthy - Tidal Bay confirmed that trend in 2012 making it 6 of the last 7 winners coming from outside Ireland. Johnjo O'Neill and Paul Nicholls trained horses should be particularly respected.

The race also throws up a strong trend for horses aged between 6 and 8 accounting for 9 of the last 10 winners (from less than 57% of the total runners).

Preference is also for horses who have:

already won over at least 3 miles (10/10)had a recent run ( 10/10 had a LTO of less than 50 days)finished in the first 3 on their last completed start ( 10/10)and had previously won a graded chase (9/10)

The market is a reasonable guide with 4 favourites winning in the last decade and no winner priced at bigger than 8/1 in that time.
