Stage Star wins the Turners' Novices Chase

The Turners Novices’ Chase is a relatively new addition to the Cheltenham Festival programme after its inaugural running just over a decade ago.

It is the first race of the four-day meeting to take place on the New Course as the action switches from the Old Course and there are 17 fences to be negotiated over 2m4f.

Stage Star landed last year’s renewal to hand trainer Paul Nicholls his first Cheltenham Festival winner in a fair while.
