National Hunt Chase Tips

National Hunt Chase Info

The fifth race on the opening dayof the Cheltenham Festival is the National Hunt Chase. Something a bit different, a race over the marathon trip of 4 miles and all jockeys are amateur riders. To make things even more interesting, all the horses are young novice chasers! It’s a recipe for a shock result and the race generally hasn’t disappointed with only three favourites winning in the last 21 years. We're amazed it’s not sponsored by a bookmaker!

Favourites don't have a particularly good record in this race, although the jolly didobliged three years in succession from 2011.
