Henry VIII Novices Chase Betting

The Henry VIII Novices Chase takes place each year during December as the national hunt season really begins to hot up. It is a novices chase for horses aged four and over and it is part of an exciting racecard for betting at Sandown.

It is a 2 mile affair, with thirteen fences to be jumped along the way. It was upgraded to Grade One status in 2011 and it is part of the same racecard as the prestigious Grade One Tingle Creek Chase.

Ante-post betting is likely to be very competitive as some very fine Grade One winners have won in the past, including Direct Route, Contraband and Racing Demon. The highly rated Somersby won in 2009 for Henrietta Knight and Knight has enjoyed plenty of success at Sandown in the past.

Knight has trained three Henry VIII Chase winners and her entries are well worth looking out for in the ante-post odds, while champion trainer Paul Nicholls is also a multiple winner.

Other exciting national hunt betting opportunities during December include:

Queen Mother Champion Chase

The Queen Mother Champion Chase takes place each year during the Cheltenham Festival in March and it is undoubtedly the most prestigious 2 mile chase in national hunt racing. The winners' list is a who's who of top class chasers and betting on the race this year is likely to be as exciting as ever.

Several runners from the Henry VIII Chase go on to try their luck in the Queen Mother Champion Chase in future years, including 2009 winner Somersby who went on to finish fifth in the 2011 Cheltenham race.

This year is likely to boast a stellar field once again and betting is sure to hot up as the season progresses....
