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

Named after the legendary Gold Cup winner.

El Fabiolo wins the Arkle Chase

The Arkle Chase takes pride of place on the horse racing calendar as the most prestigious novice chase over the minimum distance.

It is the second race on the Cheltenham Festival schedule and it is a fast-and-furious contest as there are 13 fences to be tackled at speed on the Old Course.

El Fabiolo smashed Jonbon in last season’s renewal of the Arkle – named after the three-time Gold Cup winner – and the trophy looks likely to remain in Ireland as the home team lack stars in division.

You can run the rule over our Arkle 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.
