Arkle Trophy Trials
The Arkle is the second race of the Cheltenham Festival meeting and is a novice chase over two miles. There are many trials run over the season for trainers to get there horses in shape and we will list and result them so you can keep a tab on the form over the National Hunt season.
The Arkle trophy can often be contested by former Supreme Novices' Hurdle runners and Champion Hurdlers who have switched to have a crack over the fences.
Last season's Arkle winner was the Nicky Henderson-trained Altior.
