Novices’ Handicap Chase Betting Odds


The Close Brothers Novices’ Handicap Chase – 17:30PM

Cheltenham Champion Day 2018 will draw to a close with this quality and valuable £70,000 Handicap Chase for the “best of the rest” novices, who are of real potential but not quite up to Arkle quality.

Trainer Alan Fleming notched up a win for Ireland with Tully East last year and in 2018, we are set to have yet another top quality renewal with lots of exciting young horses beginning to form around the head of the betting market.

This is the ideal race to end a memorable Champion Day at Cheltenham and of course, it provides Day 1 punters with a final chance to find a big race winner at the 2018 Cheltenham Festival in March.

Main Players

The Willie Mullins trained and Rich Ricci owned Koshari has been improving and catching the eye in Irish novice chase races in the past few weeks and interestingly, heads the Close Brothers Cheltenham betting for this handicap contest. He is a nice type and jumps very well, while the Spring ground would definitely be in this French   import’s favour.

Harry Fry’s Acting Lass is very much the most interesting of the UK contingent, on the back of a seriously impressive success at Ascot last time out. He is a really scopey young chaser and will be near on favourite if taking up this assignment in March.
