The Altcar Novices Chase betting will be here when available...
THE ALTCAR NOVICES CHASE IS A POTENTIAL PATTERN RACE TRIAL FOR THE JLT NOVICES CHASE AT THE CHELTENHAM FESTIVAL
The Altcar Novices Chase is a Grade 2 contest run over a trip of 2m4f at Haydock Park each January. Normally known under a sponsors name, the Altcar is an important mid season race for the Novice Chasers with some very nice horses winning this one in recent years on their way to bigger and better things.
Taquin Du Seuil won this race back in 2014 before going on to win the JLT Novices Chase at Cheltenham, whilst 2016 winner Bristol De Mai ran a massive race in the JLT when finishing 2nd which highlights exactly how important this contest at Haydock can prove to be each season.
