Latest 2020 Marsh Novices’ Chase Betting

The Marsh Novices’ Chase was established from the 2011 Cheltenham Festival and it is a different race then the old Jewson Novices’ Handicap. The JLT Novices’ Chase is the race that opens the third day of the Cheltenham Festival, and it is run over a distance of two and a half miles. This race is particularly suitable for those horses that are too slow for the Arkle, but that still don’t have enough stamina to compete in the RSA Chase. In 2019 it was Defi Du Seuil who landed glory at Cheltenham.

The Marsh Novices’ Chase Betting Preview & Tips

Day 3 – Thursday 12th March 2020 – 1.30pm – The Marsh Novices’ Chase – Grade 1 – 2m4f

The third day of the Cheltenham Festival will open up with a Grade One race, the Marsh Novices’ Chase. Formerly called the JLT’, the Marsh Novices Chase always gets the third day going in the best possible way.

It is interesting to note that Irish horses have been dominating this first race which takes place on St Patrick’s Day at the Cheltenham Festival. We have seen top quality Irish horses performing here like Sir Des Champs and Vautour. This race was introduced nine years ago, and we have had seven Irish champions since, so it is always worth taking a look at who are the Irish contenders.


Faugheen hasn’t run well at Cheltenham in the past two seasons so it can be ignored here quite safely. Mister Fisher is our choice here instead. Nicky Henderson’s trained had trouble giving weight to race-fit Torpillo on debut, and in fact, the two-mile trip was a bit too hard for him. In the Rymans Novices’ Chase he responded well and secured a win over Good Boy Bobby. He then produced the good in the Lightning Novices’ Chase at Doncaster defeating proper two-miles like Al Dancer and Lisp. Mister Fisher has already shown he can do it over this course and distance and the decent ground that is forecasted for day three will suit him very well.

Our Verdict: Mister Fisher

The Marsh Novices’ Chase History

The Marsh Novices’ Chase is a relatively new race at the Cheltenham Festival as it was established only in 2011. It opens up the third day of the Festival, and it is run over 2 miles and 4 furlongs. It is a race that is in between the Arkle (2 miles) and the RSA Chase (3 miles) and tends to attract a competitive field.
