When is the Arkle Chase? Cheltenham date, start time, runners and betting

Paddy's already paid out on Jonbon...

The Arkle Chase will see the leading minimum-distance novices take their chance in the second race of the Cheltenham Festival.

There are 13 fences to be negotiated at speed on the Old Course so foot-perfect jumping is key to success in the contest, named after the legendary three-time Gold Cup winner.


Nicky Henderson is the leading trainer in Arkle history and the Seven Barrows handler will be hoping Jonbon – second in last year’s Supreme Novices’ Hurdle – can provide him with an eighth winner.

You can run the rule over our antepost Arkle Chase odds on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise all the key details about this year’s renewal can be found below.
