Latest 2020 National Hunt Chase Betting

The National Hunt Chase was the first race of the second day of the Cheltenham Festival. From the 2020 edition, the organisers have decided to move it to the opening day (last race). This is a marathon that was run over four miles (now has been shortened a little), and it is dedicated to amateur jockeys. In 2019 Le Breuil landed glory for trainer Ben Pauling (14/1 chance).

National Hunt Chase Betting Preview & Tips

Day 1 – Tuesday 10th March 2020 – 5.30pm – National Hunt Chase – Amateur – 3m 5f

The National Hunt Chase is a traditional race of the Cheltenham Festival, and it has received some bad publicity lately. Still, it is one of the fans’ favourites, and some changes have been made to make it less of a test. Two furlongs have been reduced, and horses will have to have some experience before they are allowed to run here. For instance, they would have had competed over a minimum of 2 miles and 7 furlongs on several occasions.

In the latest years, this race has been dominated by trainers Willie Mullins and Gordon Elliott who have won five of the last ten renewals. Elliott has won it three times, and it is not surprising to see that horses like Carefully Selected and Champagne Classic are so up in the betting market.

Champagne Classic is surely a very interesting horse who is a previous Cheltenham Festival winner and has also landed Grade 1 races over hurdles. A terrific stat is that over his 15 career runs he has never gone outside the top three.


Our preference though goes to Springfield who is coming here in fantastic form having extended his winning sequence over the larger obstacles to 5. In February he delivered another dominant effort at Exeter, and this ride looks perfect for his skills. Carefully Selected could be a threat to our selection, although he tends to make odd mistakes, so Springfield looks a much more solid option in what is going to be an open renewal.

Our Verdict: Springfield Fox

National Hunt Challenge Cup History

The National Hunt Challenge Cup has a great history as it was firstly established in 1860. It is a gruelling race over 4 miles with 24 fences that have to be negotiated by the contestants. The race is for novice chasers that are five years old and older. There have been renewals won by 7-year-olds, but the trainer that stands out is undoubtedly Jonjo O’Neill. The Irishman has already secured five wins and is the most successful trainer in the history of the National Challenge Cup.
