There was drama last year!

The Turners Novices’ Chase is one of the newest races on the Cheltenham Festival schedule after being introduced to the meeting in 2011.

There are 17 fences to be jumped over 2m4f on the New Course and the final obstacle provided plenty of drama in last year’s renewal as Galopin Des Champs tipped up when miles clear of eventual winner Bob Olinger.


Willie Mullins is blessed with plenty of options in the novice chasing ranks this season and the Closutton handler is seeking a record-extending fifth winner in the race.

You can run the rule over our antepost Turners Novices’ 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.
