RACING POST ARKLE CHALLENGE TROPHY NOVICES' CHASE (Grade 1) (1)
The Arkle Chase is the race for the top two-mile novice chasers. The Arkle has been won in the past by the likes of Moscow Flyer, Azertyuiop, Sizing Europe and Sprinter Sacre, all of whom went on to land the Champion Chase at subsequent Festivals.
