The Marsh Novices Chase Betting Tips

If Allaho was to turn up here instead of the RSA, I’d be all over Willie Mullins’ raider, as I think he’s a real class act. At this stage though, that remains an if, so I’m left looking for an each-way alternative, and the one who holds most appeal is MISTER FISHER.

Nicky Henderson’s charge showed promise over hurdles, and he’s taken really well to the larger obstacles. Following a narrow defeat to Torpillo on debut, Mister Fisher jumped beautifully and showed an nice turn-of-foot to beat Good Boy Bobby in the Ryman’s here at Cheltenham in December.

Henderson’s six-year-old proved he had class and speed in abundance up at Doncaster, dropping back in distance to win the Grade Two Lightning Chase. Mister Fisher does have the option to remain over two miles and enter the Arkle. Yet, the faster the going, the better Mister Fisher’s chance, and the ground is bound to be nicer on day three than day one. I think he’s been dangerously underestimated.

The Marsh Novices Chase FAQs

When is the 2020 Marsh Novices Chase?

The Marsh Novices' Chase was introduced as a new race at the 2011 Cheltenham Festival, not to be confused with the old Jewson Novices' Handicap. The race is first up on day three of the meeting, run over two and a half miles. This new race caters for horses to slow for the Arkle but not enough stamina for the RSA Chase and was won by Defi Du Seuil in 2019.

Who will win the 2020 Novices Chase on Day 3?

Willie Mullins has won the race four times and would bring the house down if he could make it five with Faugheen. The former Champion Hurdler is a 12yo now and after a quiet spell is back with a bang this season over fences. We are tipping an each-way alternative here on Freetips.com
