Altcar Novices' Chase Betting

The Altcar Novices' Chase is a Grade 2 race run over 2m 4f at Haydock Park in January, and is a leading trial for the elite novice chases at the Cheltenham Festival in March, with some horses trainers using it as a trial for the Arkle Challenge Trophy and JLT Novices' Chase, while others having even warmed up for the RSA Chase with a run in this event.

Established in 1996, this race has continued to grow in stature and is run on the same day as the Champion Hurdle Trial, which is another vital form guide for Cheltenham in March, and down the years there have been some notable winners of this race who have gone on to bigger and better things.

The most notable winner of this race was the Alan King-trained My Way de Solzen, who had already tasted victory in the 2006 World Hurdle, but was then sent over fences and he tasted victory in this race in 2007 and then a couple of months later went on to win the 2007 Arkle Challenge Trophy.

Diamond Harry won this race in 2010 and he went on to storm to victory in the Hennessy Gold Cup later on in his career, while Taquin De Seuil was a fine winner in 2014 and he was another that went on to tast victory at the Cheltenham Festival later on in his career, as this race continues to throw up top notch winners.
