NATIONAL HUNT CHASE BETTING PREVIEW

The National Hunt Chase is a huge test for both horses and jockeys and a very tough race to win. It's a Grade 2 National Hunt chase, run over four miles, for novice chasers aged five and older. There are 24 fences to be jumped, so this contest is a true test of stamina and jumping skills. Irish trainers have a very good record in this race, with both Gordon Elliott and Willie Mullins winning the race in recent years.

With many interesting horses in the field this season we can expect a great National Hunt Chase at the 2018 Cheltenham Festival.

And now we'll take a closer look at this year's National Hunt Chase 2018 and try to determine which horse is likely to prevail.


JURY DUTY won a Grade 2 novice at Punchestown (from stablemate Shattered Love) in November before finishing a good second to the same rival at Leopardstown last time.

KEEPER HILL Has won two of his three starts since going over fences, improving again when winning at Doncaster, but he fell at Musselburgh last time out. He has schooled well since and should not disappoint again.

Colin Tizzard's SIZING TENNESSEE has had his issues with the obstacles so this slower pace could suit him better. His sole win over fences so far came over just short of three and a quarter miles at this track.

MOSSBACK is another who could improve further for this longer trip. He won a maiden at Naas before finishing a good half-length second in a Grade 2 Chase at Navan.

RATHVINDEN is yet to prove his stamina past two and a half miles, but was still travelling well when falling at Leopardstown on his last outing. He has won 4 times early in the season (including Grade 3 novice at Tipperary).

NO COMMENT has only had one run over fences and that was a well-beaten third behind Terrefort in the Scilly Isles Novice Chase at Sandown. Improvements are expected. Useful in bumpers and progressive over hurdles, runner-up in handicaps at Aintree/Punchestown Festivals.

MS PARFOIS is an interesting options. She has done nothing wrong in five starts this season over fences, winning three of them. This horse has won two Listed races at Warwick and Newbury and last time out was a decent second to Black Corton in the Reynoldstown Chase.

Dark horses?

DUEL AT DAWN was not disgraced behind the talented Ms Parfois last time out. PYLONTHEPRESSURE is very lightly raced but bettered previous form when winning second chase start at Thurles (2m) last month. IMPULSIVE STAR, REIGNING SUPREME and CLONDAW CIAN are other horses that might have a chance.
