Turners Novices Chase Odds

The Turners Novices Chase is one of the newer races at the Cheltenham Festival. Since being created in 2011, this race has seen some fantastic battles across the years. However, there has also been a small period of dominance during the race when Ruby Walsh and Willie Mullins won the race three years in a row with Vautour, Black Hercules and Yorkhill. The Turners Novices Chase is the first race of the third day of the Cheltenham Festival and is run on the new course of the Cheltenham racecourse.

About the Turners Novices Chase

The Turners Novices Chase (also known as the Golden Miller Novices Chase) is a grade one race during the National Hunt season, more specifically during the Cheltenham Festival. The race is run on the New course and is run over a distance of 2 miles and 4 furlongs. With 17 fences to be jumped, there are is a lot of room for error in the Novices Chase and it leaves room for horses lower down in the betting odds to have a successful Cheltenham Festival. The race is run on turf, on a left-handed track and for horses to qualify for the race they must be five-years-old and older.

Some big names have won this event and gone on perform well at races such as the Cheltenham Gold Cup. Meanwhile, some horses have performed well at the likes of the Scilly Isles Novices Chase and Sandown Park before going on to race in this event with Defi du Seuil being the standout winner of both races.

Turners Novices Chase Odds 2024

Sitting at the top of the betting odds for the 2024 rendition of the Turners Novices Chase is Fact to File, the race has a smaller number of horses in the ante post betting odds but this horse was the favourite for the Champion Bumper last year and came in second behind a Dream to Share. However, as the horse has never finished worse than second and the field last year was 21 horses, it's certainly one of the most consistent horses in the race and should be considered as an each way if the odds are high enough.

If bettors do steer clear of Fact to File they might wish to look at the likes of Ginny's Destiny, Gaelic Warrior and Facile Vega in the ante post betting, they are three horses with a good chance of winning if Fact to File puts a foot wrong on race day.

As it stands, all three of those horses are entered into multiple races and we may see a heavily backed horse take part in a different race than what you've backed. With BetUK's No Runner No Bet offering, if this happens, you'll receive your money back.
