2022 Brown Advisory Novices' Chase Tips

After the 2022 Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle, we move on to the Brown Advisory Novices' Chase and this is an exciting race which takes place over a distance of three miles and half a furlong. This is a Cheltenham race where the leading Cheltenham Festival betting sites create extra places and there might be as many as twenty horses lining up to run in this encounter.

Galopin Des Champs is a six-year-old with a bright future and it’s possible that we’ll see the Willie Mullins-trained horse eventually become a Cheltenham Gold Cup betting contender. Right now, he’s trading at odds-on to win the Brown Advisory Novices' Chase and this horse was the winner of the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival.

The Mullins-trained charge was sent off at 8/1 on that occasion and has gone from strength to strength. The horse then won the Irish Mirror Novice Hurdle at the Punchestown Festival, with the horse then taking to the bigger obstacles when securing the spoils at the Ballymaloe Relish Beginners Chase and he kicked on to win the Ladbrokes Novice Chase on 6 February.

Can Anyone Stop Galopin Des Champs Winning Brown Chase?

Although Bob Olinger is trading at short odds to win the Brown Advisory Novices' Chase, there’s a strong chance that this runner won’t line up here. Only the Cheltenham Festival NRNB bookies are offering a shorter price which indicates that we should consider the chances of Bravemansgame instead.

Paul Nicholls clearly has a talented horse on his hands, with the horse finishing third in the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle when it came to the 2021 Cheltenham Festival. It was a creditable performance behind two leading contenders, with the horse having won three chase encounters at Newton Abbott, Haydock Park and Kempton Park this season.

The latter victory came in the Ladbrokes Kauto Star Novices' Chase which was a Grade 1 race and that was over three miles on Boxing Day, with Bravemansgame beating 11/10 favourite Ahoy Senor into second place and there was a distance of seven lengths between the two horses.


Can Monkfish Score For Willie Mullins in Festival Chase?

Monkfish is currently trading as favourite to win the big Chase on the Wednesday of the 2021 Cheltenham Festival, with Willie Mullins having this horse in the famous Ricci colours and there’s plenty to recommend a horse that is currently enjoying a consecutive run of victories.

Monkfish is already a Cheltenham Festival winner after winning the Albert Bartlett Hurdle and Paul Townend steered the 5/1 shot to victory in this encounter, while the horse looked the part in the Beginners Chase at Fairyhouse although sterner tests await this talented horse.

Could Envoi Allen Line Up in the Big Wednesday Race

Envoi Allen is a big talent and has any number of entries for the 2021 Cheltenham Festival although Gordon Elliott and Gigginstown deciding to put this horse in the race would really shake things up and the horse could end up looking like a slice of value should connections decide to take their chances in this race.

Envoi Allen won the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle when being sent off as the 4/7 favourite and it looks a case of picking which race is going to suit this supremely talented runner who could be a serial winner at the Cheltenham Festival.

The Big Breakaway is a more plausible runner in this encounter and Colin Tizzard certainly knows a thing or two about training a high-class chaser, with the trainer having previously gone with Cue Card who was a top class three miler.

The five-year-old was fourth to Envoi Allen in last season’s Ballymore but can be backed with confidence to run well considering there was a solid performance in a recent Novices’ Chase at Cheltenham, while the horse got another victory under his belt when running strongly at Exeter.


The Brown Advisory Novices Chase has been in place since 1946, with Birthlaw winning the first ever race at the Cheltenham Festival 2020, with this being a Grade 1 encounter which has often been won by a seven-year-old in recent years.

This is a three-mile race which is highly popular from a betting point-of-view and it’s fairly rare to have a strong favourite considering this is a competitive heat and it was Topofthegame who claimed the spoils in the 2019 renewal.

The year before, Presenting Percy put in a superb round of jumping to win the Brown Advisory Novices Chase, while Might Bite was another winner who would then go on to run in a Cheltenham Gold Cup, with Don Poli and Blaklion having also scooped recent honours.

Champ is currently trading as a fairly short favourite at 7/2 to win the race although the landscape is far from clear considering we’re months away from the action.

The seven-year-old finished second in the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle at the 2019 Cheltenham Festival, with the Nicky Henderson-trained charge finding City Island too good for him, although he has since claimed victory at Aintree before a double success at Newbury.

There’s been very little to dislike about the JP McManus horse who has been in the top two every time he has run during a successful career, with the charge ticking a lot of the trend boxes.

There are likely to be several other leading horses lining up on Day 2 of the Cheltenham Festival and Samcro could potentially be entered in this race, with the picture no clearer for this horse after it fell recently at Fairyhouse.

Samcro has had his fair share of injury problems, although there’s little denying that the horse has plenty of class and let’s not forget that he won the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle two seasons ago.

Minella Indo could be a more viable alternative, with Henry de Bromhead having a peach of a horse that has most recently been seen at Gowran Park when the six-year-old finished second to impressive mare Laurina.

The horse was the surprise winner at 50/1 when it came to the Albert Barlett Novices’ Hurdle at the last Cheltenham Festival, with the horse beating Commander Of Fleet.

Battleoverdoyen is also worthy of consideration and we didn’t learn much from his outing at the 2019 Festival when the horse was pulled up in the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle, while there have been victories at Galway and Punchestown this season.
