Brown Advisory Novices' Chase History

The grueling race for horses aged five years old or higher is a good lead-up race to the Cheltenham Gold Cup, with the likes of Bobs Worth and Lord Windermere going on to win the Gold Cup the following year. 

First run in 1946, the Brown Advisory Novices' Chase has been raced under many different names but currently is run under the RSA Insurance Chase title. 

The most successful jockey is Pat Taaffe, who scored five wins starting in 1953 and ending in 1970 when Proud Tarquin was victorious. The most successful recent jockey is Davy Russell, who scored wins in 2010, 2013 and 2018. 

Peter Scudamore scored three consecutive Brown Advisory Novices' Chase wins from 1991-1993. That feat has only been recorded once in the history of the race, with Pat Taaffe scoring three wins in four years. 

From 1948 to 1950, the race was held in divisions and the very first winner of the Brown Advisory Novices' Chase, Birthlaw, was aged 11 – a record that stands to this day. 

Most of the recent winners are aged seven of eight, with the seven-year-olds scoring 13 of the last 19 editions. 

The 1947 edition was abandoned due to snow and frost. The 2001 race, like every other race during the Cheltenham Festival, was called off due to a foot-and-mouth crisis.

In 2020, it seemed like Ireland would be celebrating, as Minella Indo and Allaho jumped the last with a lengthy advantage. However, in an amazing twist, Nicky Henderson's Champ flew up Cleeve Hill and pipped his rivals to the post.
