THE WAYWARD LAD NOVICES CHASE IS A PATTERN RACE TRIAL FOR THE ARKLE AT THE CHELTENHAM FESTIVAL
The Wayward Lad Novices Chase is a Grade 2 race run at Kempton Park over a distance of two miles. The race takes place each December during the King George Chase Festival and gives punters a great chance to cast their eye over some of the best young chasers in training. Currently the race is run under the sponsorship of William Hill and is often a key trial race for the Arkle Chase at the Cheltenham Festival in March.
In recent years we have seen some very nice horses win the Wayward Lad including Simonsig and Sprinter Sacre who both went onto success in the Arkle at the Festival.
