Cheltenham Tips

What is the Arkle Challenge Trophy?

The Arkle Trophy is a Grade 1 novice chase, which is run over just shy of two miles (one mile, seven furlongs and 199 yards) and is traditionally held on the first day of the Cheltenham Festival, known as Champion Tuesday. The race is seen as ideal preparation for the following year’s Queen Mother Champion Chase, and winners of the Arkle regularly go on to complete that particular double the following year, with the 2017 winner Altior the most recent Arkle winner to achieve the feat, doing so in 2018.      

What happened in the 2020 Arkle Challenge Trophy?

Henry De Bromhead's Notebook was clear favourite for the Arkle Challenge Trophy, but it was the Irish handler's second string that delivered on the big stage as Put The Kettle On produced a magnificent front-running display to fend off the gutsy Fakir D'Oudairies to land the spoils at 16/1. Put The Kettle On was prominent from the outset alongside Cash Back, but the latter began to falter as they got into the second part of the race, while Notebook was unable to quicken when asked to get closer. Turning for home it was Put The Kettle On and Fakir D'Oudairies that pulled clear and it was De Bromhead's charge that found more for Aidan Coleman and claimed a fine win. Rouge Vif picked up the pieces to finish third.

The history of the Arkle Challenge Trophy

The Arkle Challenge Trophy was first introduced to the Cheltenham Festival in 1969, and was named after the three-time Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Arkle, who is largely considered to be the greatest National Hunt horse of all-time. Arkle winners regularly follow up at the Cheltenham Festival later in their careers, and several horses have done so this decade - Sizing Europe, Sprinter Sacre, Un De Sceaux and Altior. The Arkle has been sponsored by the Racing Post since 2012. 

Who is the most iconic winner of the Arkle Challenge Trophy?

The name of the Arkle is a deceptive one when looking at the roll of honour for the race, as the great Arkle never won the race himself. The race hasn’t suffered from that, though, and a host of star names have made their mark in the race - including Moscow Flyer. Although he was a Grade 1-winning hurdler, Moscow Flyer really came into his own over fences, and barring two falls he enjoyed an excellent novice chasing season, which culminated in winning the 2002 renewal of the Arkle. Jumping issues would continue to niggle Moscow Flyer throughout his career, but he built up a formidable record nonetheless, winning the Queen Mother Champion Chase in 2003 and 2005. Moscow Flyer would continue racing until the grand old age of 12, and signed off by finishing a creditable fifth in the 2006 Champion Chase. 

Are there any trials for the Arkle Challenge Trophy?

There are plenty of trial races for the Arkle that are worth keeping an eye out for throughout the season, with the most significant of those being the Henry VIII Novices’ Chase at Sandown and the Wayward Lad Novices’ Chase at Kempton. Other races to note include the Future Stars Intermediate Chase at Sandown, the November Novices’ Chase at Cheltenham, the Noel Novices’ Chase at Ascot, the Lightning Novices’ Chase at Doncaster and the Kingmaker Novices’ Chase at Warwick. Over in Ireland, races to watch include the Buck House Novice Chase and the Craddockstown Novice Chase, which are both at Punchestown, and the Racing Post Novice Chase and the Irish Arkle, which are both at Leopardstown.

Who is the most successful jockey in the Arkle Challenge Trophy?

The joint-most successful jockeys in the history of the Arkle Trophy are Barry Geraghty and Ruby Walsh, who both have four wins. Barry Geraghty’s Arkle wins came with Moscow Flyer (2002), Forpadydeplasterer (2009), Sprinter Sacre (2012) and Simonsig (2013), while Ruby Walsh’s four Arkle wins came with Azertyuiop (2003), Un De Sceaux (2015), Douvan (2016) and Footpad (2018).

Who is the most successful trainer in the Arkle Challenge Trophy?

The most successful trainer in the history of the Arkle Trophy is Nicky Henderson, who has won the race six times, with Remittance Man (1991), Travado (1993), Tiutchev (2000), Sprinter Sacre (2012), Simonsig (2013) and Altior (2017).
