When is the National Hunt Chase 2024? Cheltenham date, start time, runners and betting

It's the second longest race of the fez.

Gaillard Du Mesnil wins the National Hunt Chase in 2023

The National Hunt Chase lays claim to being the race has been run more times than any other at the Cheltenham Festival, although it has changed over the years.

A stamina-sapping slog over 3m6f, it features amateur jockeys in the saddle of some of the leading staying novices in the game and reliable jumping is required as there are 23 fences to be negotiated.

The Irish have landed six of the last seven renewals of the National Hunt Chase, with hot fancy Gaillard Du Mesnil justifying favouritism in last year’s contest before going on to place third in the Aintree Grand National.

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