2025 Turners Novices Chase Betting Odds at Cheltenham racecourse

Thursday, 13 March 2025

Gaelic Warrior looks like the one to beat when it comes to the Turners Novices’ Chase, with Willie Mullins training a horse who has enjoyed back to back victories this season. The six-year-old is likely to be favourite and could go up against a couple of stablemates, with Facile Vega potentially going down the same route and bidding for a victory.

Fact To File might be another from the Willie Mullins stable who lines up in this race, while Corbetts Cross can be a promising horse and Emmet Mullins will hope that he can run into the frame at the very least. Found A Fifty and Inthepocket are other viable contenders, with Blood Destiny and Hermes Allen also entered at the time of writing.

2024 Turners Novices’ Chase Tips

Gaelic Warrior is the short-priced favourite to win the Turners Novices’ Chase, with the six-year-old having finished second in the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle at the previous Cheltenham Festival. He then went on to perform well at Punchestown, with a ten-length victory being secured in the Irish Mirror Novice Hurdle.

This season, there have been further victories at Punchestown and Limerick, with the latter win coming in the Faugheen Novice Chase where a winning distance of five and a half lengths was posted. It will be interesting to see what price Gaelic Warrior happens to be on the day of the race, with Facile Vega currently next in the market.

The latter was fourth in his latest outing although the horse was second in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle at last year’s Cheltenham Festival after finishing second to Marine Nationale. This was followed by a victory at Punchestown where the horse obliged as odds-on favourite in the Champion Novice Hurdle.

Corbetts Cross is another seven-year-old with decent claims and the horse has been in the first three home in his three appearances this season. The runner was third out of nine at Naas before claiming a victory at Fairyhouse in early December. Then came a second-placed finish at Leopardstown where Grangeclare West once again proved too strong.


2023 Turners Novices' Chase Betting Tips

Mighty Potter is sure to be a warm order when it comes to the opening race on Day Three of the 2023 Cheltenham Festival, with the Gordon Elliott-trained runner having put together a string of victories leading up to the meeting. Since being pulled up in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle twelve months ago, the horse has been winning races and has taken well to the bigger obstacles.

This season, a Beginners Chase victory at Down Royal was followed by an impressive run in the Drinmore Novice Chase at Fairyhouse, with the horse travelling strongly and jumping well throughout the two miles and four furlongs. There were some good horses beaten that day and then came a victory in the Ladbrokes Novices Chase.

Over two miles and five furlongs, the even money favourite won by over eight lengths, with El Fabiolo also boasting a strong track record and there have been three straight wins for the Willie Mullins runner. The six-year-old was an impressive winner of the Goffs Irish Arkle Novice Chase over two miles and one furlong but will need to find more over a longer distance.

Appreciate It is the eye-catching entry in the race and perhaps the Willie Mullins-trained runner will improve after finishing ten lengths behind his stablemate at the Dublin Racing Festival. The horse might continue an upward trajectory over fences although there isn’t a lot of proof that the runner will be able to beat Mighty Potter going into this race.


2022 Turners Novices' Chase Tips

Trainer Henry de Bromhead is excited to see Bob Olinger turn out at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival again, with the Irish handler revealing that he was comfortable with the horse bypassing the Dublin Racing Festival before taking his place in the Turners Novices’ Chase, where he’s going to be a strong Cheltenham Festival betting tip.

Bob Olinger was regarded as something of an Irish Cheltenham Festival banker when lining up for the 2021 Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle. The then six-year-old was trading as the 6/4 favourite before an impressive performance when landing a victory by seven-and-a-half lengths which means he’s a potential Cheltenham Gold Cup winner.

Indeed, it will be worth considering the 2023 Queen Mother Champion Chase odds or 2023 Gold Cup betting odds where you might find Bob Olinger among the favourites if a big run is enjoyed here, with the horse having won the Group 3 Kildare Novice Chase and we’re likely to see Rachael Blackmore give the runner a big spin.

Can Anyone Beat Bob Olinger at Cheltenham?

L’Homme Presse might be among the Cheltenham betting favourites, with the seven-year-old having won on four consecutive occasions this season. Venetia Williams trains a runner who could be the fly in the ointment to Bob Olinger, with Charlie Deutsch riding the horse to an excellent win on New Year’s Day.

That victory was achieved by ten lengths in the Paddy Power Novices' Chase, beating off The Glancing Queen which certainly indicated that the horse can act at Prestbury Park. The horse then enjoyed an impressive prep run at Sandown Park thanks to a win in the Virgin Bet Scilly Isles Novices' Chase.

It’s far from certain as to what the final field will look like for the 2022 Turners Novices’ Chase, with many of the leading betting contenders having multiple entries into various encounters. Blue Lord is prominent in the Cheltenham betting market and Bravemansgame might also take his place although the presence of Bob Olinger might scare a few contenders away.


Can Envoi Allen be a Banker in Turners Novices’ Chase?

Envoi Allen is trading at odds-on with the vast majority of online bookmakers right now for the Turners Novices’ Chase, with the six-year-old having swept all before him so far in his career. At the 2019 Cheltenham Festival, the runner really put himself on the map when winning the Champion Bumper at odds of 2/1 and he then returned to the meeting a year later and proved successful again.

There was everything to like about the horse’s victory in the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle when he made easy work of beating Easywork into second place, with the runner sent off at 4/7 and it might be the case that we see him at a similar price for the Turners.

While Envoi Allen has multiple entries for different 2021 Cheltenham races, the chances are that he will be seen in the Turners Novices’ Chase and it might be worth waiting for the bookies to offer Non-Runner No Bet should you want to get an early price.

Who Can Beat Envoi Allen at 2021 Cheltenham Festival?

While Envoi Allen will be regarded as a red-hot banker at Cheltenham, there are going to be plenty of other quality horses in the Turners Novices’ Chase and this includes Shishkin who won the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle twelve months previously and could potentially go close in a race such as this one.

Nicky Henderson saw his horse comfortably win a two-mile chase on soft ground at Kempton recently and it means that the runner has now enjoyed five consecutive victories and that bodes well for the Festival.

Monkfish is another horse that could land a victory in the Turners Novices’ Chase, with Willie Mullins having seen his charge pass a series of recent examinations and that included a win in the Neville Hotels Novice Chase over Christmas at Leopardstown.


We reach the halfway stage of the Cheltenham Festival and hopefully there is still money left in our pocket as we approach Day Three of the meeting which takes place on Thursday 12 March, 2020.

The Turners Novices’ Chase gets us underway and looks like an attractive race, with Faugheen trading as the favourite with most bookmakers and it’s easy to see why punters are latching on to the Willie Mullins-trained horse.

FAUGHEEN has a long association with the Cheltenham Festival and finished third in last year’s Stayers’ Hurdle, with the 12-year-old now being sent over the bigger obstacles and he’s won twice already this season over timber.

Indeed, both victories were pretty convincing, with Faugheen triumphing by over seven lengths at Punchestown before thrashing Samcro in the Boxing Day encounter at Limerick and the horse could be backed down to short odds for this one.

However, perhaps there is a chance that SAMCRO will turn the tables on his adversary come March, with Paddy Power offering a best price 12/1 about the Gigginstown horse who has had more than his fair share of injury worries.

Gordon Elliott has an excellent record of getting horses primed for the big meetings and the eight-year-old could yet strike the right balance over bigger obstacles.

There are lots of well-known horses entered for this renewal and it naturally follows that some won’t run in this race and potentially be re-routed to another race at the Cheltenham Festival instead.

However, JP McManus is sure to have a presence in the race and perhaps Champ can line up for this clash, with CHAMP having won twice this season before falling in his most recent outing.

The eight-year-old scored two successes at Newbury before falling on New Year’s Day, although he was second in the Ballymore at last year’s Festival and looks the sort who will run well at Cheltenham.

Fakir D’oudairies has developed a habit of finishing in the top two for every race he appears in and the Joseph O’Brien-trained charge is clearly open to further improvement at the tender age of five.

Having won at Navan and Fairyhouse a few weeks ago, the horse then finished second behind Notebook at Leopardstown and we’re expecting him to make a big showing by the time spring comes around.

Black Op is also entered and the Tom George-trained beast is still adjusting to the bigger fences after underwhelming over hurdles when it really mattered last year. He was especially disappointing in the Stayers Hurdle when finishing well down the field.

However, the fact that Black Op hasn’t been out of the top two in his three outings to date suggest that he could have a say in this opening race on Day Three.
