Lightning Novices' Chase Betting

The Lightning Novices' Chase is a Grade 2 race run at Doncaster over 2m 78y, and is run in late January on a sparkling card at the Town Moor racecourse, which also includes the River Don Novices' Hurdle and the Sky Bet Chase and can provide a plethora of Cheltenham Festival clues.

Established in 1979, the Lightning Novices' Chase was run at Ascot for a few decades, before it was moved to its current location of Doncaster in 2010, and is now one of the leading trials for the Arkle Challenge Trophy, while some trainers have used it as a stepping stone to the JLT Novices' Chase.

Deep Sensation is one of the most notable winners of the race in 1992 and the following season that raider went on to bound to glory in the Queen Mother Champion Chase, while some other notable winners of this race include Woolcombe Folly (2010) and Vaniteux, who stormed to victory in the 2016 renewal for Nicky Henderson.
