Tingle Creek Chase

The Tingle Creek Chase is a Grade 1 National Hunt chase in Great Britain which is open to horses aged four years or older. It is run at Sandown Park over a distance of about 2 miles (3,219 metres), and during its running there are thirteen fences to be jumped. The race is scheduled to take place each year in early December.

The event was first run in 1979, and it was named in honour of Tingle Creek, a popular National Hunt racehorse in the 1970s. Tingle Creek had a particularly good record in races at Sandown Park.
