JLT Novices' Chase Odds
Day 3 - Thursday 15th March 2018 - 1.30pm - JLT Novices' Chase - Grade 1 - 2m4f
The JLT Novices' Chase was introduced as a new race at the 2011 Cheltenham Festival, not to be confused with the old Jewson Novices' Handicap. The race is first up on day three of the meeting, run over two and a half miles. This new race caters for horses to slow for the Arkle but not enough stamina for the RSA Chase and was won on it's seventh by favourite Yorkhill, trained by Willie Mullins.

JLT Novices' Chase Background
The JLT Novices' Chase was a brand new addition to the 2011 Cheltenham Festival and it promises to be an exciting addition as it opens the third day of the Festival. It involves a distance of 2 miles and 4 furlongs, and because it falls between the 2 mile trip of the Arkle and the 3 mile trip of the RSA Chase it is likely to attract a quality field.
The race was formerly known as the Jewson, which was transferred from what will now be known as the Centenary Novices Chase (which is now run on the opening day of the Festival).
