About the National Hunt Chase Challenge Cup

The National Hunt Chase Challenge Cup is a showcase for the UK’s top amateur jockeys, who take on a 4 mile steeplechase course on 4-year-old and above novice staying chasers. 24 fences are jumped in the course of the race.

The National Hunt Chase Challenge Cup is an important part of the Cheltenham Festival, with a history stretching back to 1860. It is also the longest distance race run at the Cheltenham Festival, and was considered the second most important race in the UK until the 1930s.

Betting on the National Hunt Chase Challenge Cup

The fields that compete in the modern version of the National Hunt Handicap Chase are set to improve with the race’s elevation to Grade 2 status in 2017. However, the recent history of the race draws in a ragtag group of novice chasers who have their work cut out pacing the 4 mile race properly under their novice riders.

Despite this, the National Hunt Chase Challenge Cup doesn’t tend to go to long shots, and in recent years winners have run home priced under the 16/1 margin, with several winners priced under 10/1. The favourite will usually be priced within range of a profitable each-way punt on a place, but keep an eye out for proven stayers trading between the 4/1 to 10/1 mark.
