We are looking forward to many races at Cheltenham in 2021, and one of the big ones is the Festival Novices Steeple Chase. Horses aged five and older contest the Grade 1 National Hunt chase, held at the Cheltenham racing course. Horses have to run 3 miles and ½ furloughs to win the grand prize, which stands at £175,000.
We love this annual event because it keeps us on the edge of our seats, and it’s a traditional race that is always popular with punters.
This exclusive event will play on a live stream held by Cheltenham and on the MansionBet UK live stream. Be ready for this exciting event held on the 17th March, 2021 at 14:10 GMT.
Festival Novices’ Steeple Chase: Tips and Predictions
It shouldn’t take long before those Irish eyes are smiling as MONKFISH looks far too tasty for his rivals in the Brown Advisory Novices’ Chase. He won the Albert Bartlett over 3m here last season and has looked every inch a superstar in the making this season since going chasing. He scared off most of his rivals for this and could be a Gold Cup winner of the future.
The Big Breakaway has to jump better but has a significant engine, and perhaps Scilly Isles winner Sporting John might be second-best. That Sandown performance was quite something given he didn’t appear at all happy early on, but he picked off Grade 1 winner Shan Blue at his leisure in the end. That form may give him an edge on the Tizzard horse.
