The Cheltenham cross country started as a place filler in 2015 when an extra day was added to the festival. In 2016, the race became a Conditions Race where weights are added to horses according to certain conditions.
The prize money here is a huge £65,000, and none of the horses are younger than five-years-old.
The latter condition is challenging and really tests the horse’s stamina, the jockey’s skill, and the trainer’s diligence.

Cross Country Chase: Tips, Predictions, and Previews
Tiger Roll will be eleven in 2021 and, had The Grand National not been cancelled, he would have had another go at winning it.
McManus is so impressed with his most recent purchase that he has mentioned that he is expecting great things from Easysland in 2021.
The well-loved Cause of Causes seems to rest on his laurels during the winter before bursting into life again at Cheltenham.
Josie’s Orders hasn’t had the best of luck last season, and unless another Nina Carberry comes along, we can’t expect much of him it seems.
Cross Country Chase: Recent Winners
Easysland beat Tiger Roll with a whole 17 lengths last time around, which really was one for the books.
Despite Tiger Roll’s Cross Country shortcomings, he has been very successful elsewhere, so this loss, while quite telling of Mcmanus’ new flame, is barely indicative of Tiger Roll.
