About Cheltenham Trials Day 2020

It may be very early in the UK National Hunt horse racing season which takes us from autumn 2019 through to the spring of 2020, but there’s plenty going on. Horse racing enthusiasts and sports bettors have one eye on 2020 Cheltenham Festival, following the form of the main runners without yet knowing which contests they will run in.

The 2020 Cheltenham Trials Day is an invaluable tool for those looking to get their cash down on the Prestbury Park showpiece event which takes place over the course of four days in March, running from Tuesday to Friday. Bookmakers have priced up a number of antepost markets on the festival and this gives punters the chance to predict which races horses will run in and how they will perform, placing win and each-way bets.

The Cheltenham Trials Day will take place on Saturday 25 January 2020 and will be the final meeting before the festival in March. One last chance to get a look at some of the early betting favourites, checking on form, price and fitness. The results of Cheltenham Festival trials day will have a huge impact on how many punters approach their antepost bets.

Cheltenham Trials Day Races

Let’s now take a closer look at all seven of the races that help to make up the Cheltenham Trials Day, starting with the JCB Triumph Hurdle.

Prestbury Juvenile Novices Hurdle – JCB Triumph Hurdle Trial – 12:40


Prestbury Juvenile Novices Hurdle Time is 12:40


Type: Grade 2 National Hunt Hurdle (2 miles ½ furlongs)


Trial race for JCB Triumph Hurdle

This race is also known as the Prestbury Juvenile Novices Hurdle and has a Grade 2 listing. It is contested over two miles at Cheltenham and is open to three-year-old entrants with eight hurdles standing between the opening field and a champion. The race was first run back in 1987 when Daffodil scored under the ride of Ron Hyett for owner Sally Oliver.

What Happened in 2019?

The 2019 race was won by Fakir D’Oudairies for the jockey and owner team of Slevin and JP O’Brien. They finished ahead of runner up Fine Brunello under the ride of Barry Geraghty with Adjali back in third that day. Fakir D’Oudairies ran in the Supreme Novices Hurdle last year but finished back in fourth, a race won by Klassical Dream at 6/1.

JCB Triumph Hurdle Trial Past Winners

  • 2019 – Allmankind (Jockey: Harry Skelton / Trainer: Dan Skelton)
  • 2018 – Quel Destin (Jockey: Harry Cobden / Trainer: Paul Nicholls)
  • 2017 – Apple’s Shakira (Jockey: Barry Geraghty / Trainer: Nicky Henderson)

Timeform Novices Handicap Chase – 13:15


Timeform Novices Handicap Chase Time is 13:15


Type: Grade 2 Steeple Chase (2 miles 5 furlongs)


Trial race for Close Brothers Novices' Handicap Chase

The second race of the day comes in the form of the Novices Handicap Chase, which gets underway at 13:15pm. Run over a distance of 2 miles and 5 furlongs, many trainers will be looking on to see if their prized assets have the stamina to last over such a demanding track.

With a number of Cheltenham hopefuls expected to line up in this one, it could well be one of the most competitive races on Trials Day, with the betting odds from the bookies representing this already. Mick Channon-trained Mister Whitaker was last years winner.

Key Runners

Whether or not any of this particular bunch of novices can go on to make their mark at the 2020 Cheltenham Festival remains open to doubt, however it’s a fascinating potential line-up at the five-day entry stage with Gordon Elliott’s former Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle winner Samcro the standout name.

Here are six of the best early entries with final declarations being made on Friday January 24th:

  • Burbank (Age: 8, Trainer: Nicky Henderson)
  • Champagne Court (Age: 7, Trainer: Jeremy Scott)
  • Cloudy Glen (Age: 7, Trainer: Venetia Williams)
  • Imperial Aura (Age: 7, Trainer: Kim Bailey)
  • Samcro (Age: 8, Trainer: Gordon Elliott)
  • Simply The Betts (Age: 7, Trainer: Harry Whittingdon)

Timeform Novices’ Handicap Chase Tips

Rather typically for a handicap, and just as it should be for that matter, the early entries and weights for this novices’ chase make the contest look extremely tight and it may well take some solving.

Burbank (8/1)

As a last-time-out winner trained by Nicky Henderson, Burbank will be popular if he runs but he arguably wasn’t at his best over hurdles at Cheltenham so may not be in love with this place, while he was also better for going over a longer trip last time out.

Samcro (12/1)

Potential topweight Samcro is a Cheltenham Festival winner over the smaller obstacles and has started well all things considered in his chasing career.
Gordon Elliott’s charge has good form with Fakir D’Oudairies, who many feel he would have beaten had he stayed on his feet, and with Faugheen who clearly saw out the trip in heavy ground better than this chap last time.

He does need to jump better though and its particularly crucial round here, so carrying 11st12lbs would not be ideal without the knowledge that he has performed much, much better at home.

Imperial Aura (3/1)

Kim Bailey’s Imperial Aura has been installed as the ante post favourite for the race following a virtual walkover at Fakenham on his chasing debut and a fine runner-up effort behind Pym here last time out. That last race proved he can handle Cheltenham, but also that the three-mile trip was too far for him so going back over this distance is a major positive and he should go extremely close.

Simply The Betts (8/1)

At a bigger price there should be some interest in Harry Whittingdon’s Simply The Betts. He’s hard to judge right now, but on potential he has a big chance and at a general 7/1 and 8/1 represents some value.

Simply The Betts handles Kempton OK and saw things out at Newcastle over a shorter distance, leading to doubts as to whether he’ll be at his best up the Cheltenham hill which all means that the percentage call at a best-priced 7/2 is Imperial Aura.

Timeform Novices’ Handicap Chase Ante Post Tip: IMPERIAL AURA

Spectra Cyber Security Solutions Trophy Steeple Chase – 13:50


Spectra Cyber Security Solutions Trophy Steeple Chase Time is 13:50


Type: Grade 3 Steeple Chase (2 miles 5 furlongs)

Another race that’s sure to pull in the crowds, the results, times and performances of each of the entrants will have antepost backers reaching for their notepads, jotting down those all-important numbers with an eye on March’s festival. Could a Cheltenham Festival winner appear in this race?

It’s certainly possible but this race is also a great chance for backers to boost their profits in great time for March. This may be a trials race but it’s also a very competitive contest and there will be no lack of value available. For those unable to attend Cheltenham, this race will be shown live on ITV.

Key Runners

This will be a thoroughly competitive Grade 3 handicap chase, one that could provide several Festival candidates. There are at least ten in with chances at the ante post stage, these six perhaps being the biggest headline-grabbers:

  • Ex Patriot (Age: 7, Trainer: Ellmarie Holden)
  • Highway One O One (Age: 8, Trainer: Chris Gordon)
  • Jerrysback (Age: 8, Trainer: Philip Hobbs)
  • Lalor (Age: 8, Trainer: Kayley Woollacott)
  • Spiritofthegames (Age: 8, Trainer: Dan Skelton)
  • Warthog (Age: 8, Trainer: David Pipe)

Spectra Cyber Security Solutions Trophy Steeple Chase Tips

Ex Patriot (8/1)

Seven-year-old Ex Patriot was well fancied for a very similar race to this here on New Year’s Day in which he made a mistake at the last fence and was beaten just four lengths. With that experience under his belt he may now go on to better things for his little-known Irish handler and is right in with a shout.

Highway One O One (7/1)

Highway One O One is a very consistent performer including over this course and distance, but he’s not one that is showing any real improvement making his virtually unchanged handicap mark of 145 look hefty enough and so he may be fighting for place money.

Jerrysback (8/1)

JP McManus’ Jerrysback was gambled on in a major way for the Silver Cup at Ascot and he did alright there to finish third. He could come on for that run, however he hasn’t always looked his best around Prestbury Park and so we can perhaps knock a couple of pounds off what we think his potential performance level will be.

Lalor (7/1)

Kayley Woollacott’s Lalor is a former Arkle Trophy favourite who ran a cracker here last time when upped to this course and distance, finishing third ahead of Ex Patriot in a blanket finish and being unlucky not to win.

While Ex Patriot may well improve, so too will this chap meaning the 3lb pull the Irish horse has shouldn’t be enough to make up four lengths. If that race is the best form guide which we think it is, then this horse could be the one.

Spiritofthegames (7/1)

Spiritofthegames is yet another here with strong course and distance Grade 3 form, but much like Highway One O One he remains consistent without improving while Warthog, you guessed it, a course and distance Grade 3 winner, can keep improving from his lower rating but may not be coming into this from a race as strong as the Lalor/Ex Patriot form and that’s crucial.

At around 7/1 ante post then, Lalor appears to represent the best value.

Spectra Cyber Security Solutions Trophy Steeple Chase Tip: LALOR

Past Winners

Year Winner Age Weight Jockey Trainer
2019 Siruh Du Lac 6 10-06 Lizzie Kelly Nick Williams

2017 Foxtail Hill 8 10-00 Jamie Bargary Nigel Twiston-Davies

BetBright Trial Cotswold Chase – 14:25


Cotswold Chase Time is 14:25


Type: Grade 2 Steeple Chase (3 miles 1½ furlongs)


Trial race for Cheltenham Gold Cup

The BetBright Trial Cotswold Chase is another Cheltenham Trial and is a Grade 2 contest open to horses aged five years old and above. Run on the new course, it sees entrants do battle over 3m 1f with no less than 21 fences to be jumped. It’s a real tough test but shows us the shape of the main runners and how well their preparations are going.

Win this race and runners will be extremely popular in the festival antepost betting, that’s for sure. Who will your cash be on? Frodon won the race in 2019, beating Elegant Escape into second with Terrefort back in third.

Key Runners

The Grade 2 Cotswold Chase is a genuine prep race for the Gold Cup at the Cheltenham Festival, with these five runners entered up at the early stages, all looking to prove themselves worthy of a place in the final Blue Riband field on March 13th:

  • Bristol De Mai (Age: 9, Trainer: Nigel Twiston-Davies)
  • De Rasher Counter (Age: 8, Trainer: Emma Lavelle)
  • Delta Work (Age: 7, Trainer: Gordon Elliott)
  • Santini (Age: 8, Trainer: Nicky Henderson)
  • Top Ville Ben (Age: 8, Trainer: Philip Kirby)

2020 Costwold Chase Tips

Bristol De Mai (5/2)

Nigel Twiston-Davies’ Bristol De Mai is a real Haydock specialist who was finally beaten around the Merseyside track this season by Lostintranslation, though he remained at his usual high level behind the Gold Cup hope. He runs OK around here but perhaps not to his very best, whether that’s good enough then remains to be seen.

De Rasher Counter (8/1)

Emma Lavelle is adamant her Ladbrokes Trophy winner De Rasher Counter is good enough for this level and for the Gold Cup, though the bare form of his win at Newbury doesn’t place him among the best of these and so he would need to step up significantly on what he’s achieved thus far.

Delta Work (6/1)

Gordon Elliott’s Delta Work is a most interesting candidate. Winner of the 2018 Pertemps Final over hurdles and third in the RSA Chase last year when favourite, this is a real Cheltenham Festival horse whose love of this track is not in doubt.

Having now got used to things over fences he looks a real top-class type, winning the Savills Chase last time out when drifting left and an even better performance is expected this time.

Santini (7/4)

Santini, the clear favourite for this in the ant post market at a best-priced 7/4, has always been held in very high regard. A winner here over hurdles and second in the RSA last year ahead of Delta Work, there are no worries about the track with him for sure.

He lost a shoe in the RSA too but Delta Work was badly short of room at one stage and had to switch, meaning he may well have gone on to justify favouritism with a better run so we can’t help thinking that at 7/4 this chap is just far too short versus Delta Work’s varying quotes of between 3/1 and 6/1.

 2020 Costwold Chase Tip: DELTA WORK

Past Costwold Chase Winners

What Happened in 2019?

In 2019 we watched on as Frodon won the race for Bryony Frost, holding off the attentions of Elegant Escape and O’Brien in second. Terrefort completed the major places that day, landing backers the each-way value. The winner of the 2019 Cotswold Chase went to the Cheltenham Festival and won the Grade 1 Ryanair Chase off an SP 9/2. That rates as one of the standout Cheltenham Trials Day 2019 results.

Year Winner Age Jockey Trainer
2019 Frodon 7 Bryony Frost Paul Nicholls
2017 Many Clouds 9 Leighton Aspell Oliver Sherwood
2018 Definitly Red 9 Danny Cook Brian Ellison

Ballymore Classic Novices’ Hurdle – 15:00


Ballymore Classic Novices' Hurdle Time is 15:00


Type: Grade 2 National Hunt hurdle (2 miles 4½ furlongs)


Trial race for Ballymore Novices' Hurdle

As perhaps one of the most important races on Cheltenham Trials Day, the Ballymore Classis Novices Hurdle is always notoriously difficult to predict, with a whole host of future stars set to be on show.

Punters have an option on this race. They can watch on as interested bystanders, keeping an eye on eth results and noting the performances of early betting favourites for the Cheltenham Festival or treating the race as a single contest and making the bets needed to beat the bookies and boost your betting balance.

The 2020 renewal promises to provide us with a star-studded field with owners and trainers running the rule over their runners before deciding which race to enter them in at the Cheltenham Festival. It also provides them with an update on the shape of their main rivals.

Key Runners

  • Champagne Well (Age: 7, Trainer: Fergal O’Brien)
  • Harry Senior (Age: 6, Trainer: Colin Tizzard)
  • House Island (Age: 6, Trainer: Paul Webber)
  • King Roland (Age: 6, Trainer: Harry Fry)
  • Protektorat (Age: 5, Trainer: Dan Skelton)
  • Sporting John (Age: 5, Trainer: Philip Hobbs)

2020 Ballymore Classic Novices’ Hurdle Tips

Champagne Well (8/1)

Trained locally by Fergal O’Brien, it’s no surprise that Champagne Well has a great course record and having been tried at three miles last time, we can expect further improvement now that he’s back to 2m4f.

Harry Senior (7/1)

Only a maiden winner and at the fourth attempt into the bargain Harry Senior is well thought of but so far, his form simply isn’t matching up to his hype and he’ll need to take a giant leap to be involved in the finish we feel.

House Island (9/1)

House Island is coming along nicely over hurdles and improving in lumps along the way, despite a second-place finish last time. If there’s another 6-7lbs improvement to come, which remains possible, it could be hard to hold this horse back at these weights just as long as he handles the hill.

King Roland (3/1)

King Roland is very hard to judge after two utterly bloodless wins to begin his hurdling career with, and in that case some such types go on to be absolutely top class while others don’t handle things so well when the pace is quicker and the opposition is better, so at only 4/1 he’s passed over this time.

Sporting John (6/4)

Another very easy winner last time out was Sporting John in fact he also beat Harry Senior the time before so we have a good form line to follow there. Unbeaten in two hurdle races he can still get better yet, so off just 11st 5lbs he has to be in with a chance here.

Plenty can have their say then, but on all known evidence and taking ante post odds into the equation too, the 9/1 available about House Island is perhaps just too juicy to turn down.

Ballymore Classic Novices’ Hurdle Tip: HOUSE ISLAND

Ballymore Classic Novices Hurdle Past Winners

What Happened in 2019?

Last year the winner of the Ballymore Classic Novices Hurdle was Birchdale for Barry Geraghty and trainer Nicky Henderson. Staying on for a second place finish that day was Buster Valentine for Aspell and Jarveys Plate came good for third with Brennan in the saddle. Birchdale went to the Cheltenham Festival the same year but didn’t enjoy the same luck. He was pulled up by Geraghty when competing in the Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle, a race won by Minella Indo.
