Close Brothers Novices’ Chase 2020 Betting Preview & Odds

10.03.20 4:50pm Close Brothers Novices’ Handicap Chase

The is the second of two handicaps on the card on day one of the festival. It offers an interesting challenge for punters who bet on Cheltenham, and finding the winner is not easy.

This is a race confined to novice chasers, and usually where horses run if they are not quite good enough for the big novice races.

For this reason, we often get a competitive race and the weights are usually very tight, with just a few pounds between the best and worst.

Although a competitive affair, it is a race where you can use Cheltenham free bets to place a wager and try pick out a winner.
