Cheltenham November Novices Chase (2m)

The two mile November Novices Chase ( previously the Coventry) is seen as an important trial for the Arkle Challenge Trophy Chase on the opening day of the Cheltenham Festival. Azertyuiop in the 2002-2003 season was the last horse to double up in both races.

The roll of honour inludes horses who went on to win show their best over further notably Best Mate, Seebald and Thisthatandtheother since 2000. The 2011 winner Al Ferof may be a horse to fall into this category and tries a longer trip in the 2012 Paddy Power Gold Cup.
