Cheltenham festival takes place annually in March at Cheltenham Racecourse in Gloucestershire, where the best horses and jockeys come together determined to win this spectacular event. It is the pinnacle of jump racing consisting of the Gold Cup, the Champion Hurdle, the Champion Chase and the World Hurdle. It is held over 4 days, with a fantastic festival atmosphere and relaxed vibe from start to finish. Cheltenham Festival is the highlight of the National Hunt season in both the UK and Ireland and it is what everyone works towards during the winter months. Kauto Star, Denman, Long Run, Imperial Commander, Best Mate are just some of the great names to have won the Cheltenham Festival.


The next few months will see a host of opportunities for young chasers who will hope to develop into serious prospects for steeple chasings biggest prizes next season. We at Free Bets have put together a list of novice chasers who may have what it takes to compete against the best in races like the King George, Champion Chase and Gold Cup in the 2017/2018 National Hunt season.

1.ALTIOR - A best price 5-6 with Betway for the Racing Post Arkle Chase at the festival. Unbeaten in his last eight starts including three easy victories over fences. If Douvan was to step up in trip next season would be the obvious candidate for The Queen Mother Champion Chase. Will stay further than two miles but unlikely to have his stamina tested too soon.

2.MIN - Runner-up to Altior in Supreme Novices Hurdle at last years festival and one of Irelands leading chasing prospects following two easy victories over fences for trainer Willie Mullins. Chief market rival to Altior in Arkle at a standout 9-2 with Betfair Sportsbook. Looks the type to clean up at home next season where his shrewd handler will campaign him wisely.

3.BELLSHILL - Decent staying novice hurdler who was always going to make a better chaser and impressive winner of both his starts over fences this season. Potential Gold Cup horse of the future for Willie Mullins with races like the Hennessy, Lexus, Irish Gold Cup sure to be considered on the way to Prestbury Park. A standout 9-2 with Betfair Sportsbook for the RSA.

4.MIGHT BITE - Would have been an impressive winner of Kauto Star Novices Chase on King George Chase day at Kempton but for failing to navigate the final fence. Time would have been faster than that of Thistlecrack in the feature so providing that fall has not left a mark looks main danger to Bellshill in the RSA. 6-1 Generally.

5.YORKHILL - A standout 2-1 with Skybet for the JLT Novices Chase at the festival. Beat leading Champion Hurdle contender Yanworth fair and square in the Neptune at the festival and would have been well fancied for the hurdling crown if his campaign had gone that way instead of being sent over fences this season. Two easy victories over the bigger obstacles and another tremendous chasing prospect for trainer Willie Mullins and owner Graham Wylie.

6.AMERICAN - Novice chase wins at Exeter and Warwick for trainer Harry Fry who expects big things from the Malinas gelding. Entered in both the RSA and National Hunt Chase. The latter looks the easier of the two contests making the 16-1 generally available an attractive proposition.
