Hampton Novices' Chase: Could we see a Cheltenham novice chaser emerge from Warwick event?

Paul Nicholls is set to saddle the exciting Threeunderthrufive at Warwick.
Paul Nicholls is set to saddle the exciting Threeunderthrufive at Warwick.

There's a £25,000 bonus for any horse that can win the Hampton Novices' Chase at Warwick on Saturday and go on to claim victory in a novice chase at the Cheltenham Festival. So, we look at those horses that could potentially land the coveted and valuable double...

Having saddled Next Destination to victory in this race 12 months ago, Paul Nicholls will bid to retain the Grade 2 title and he is set to unleash the very smart staying novice chaser Threeunderthrufive, who is likely to go off a warm order in the betting for Saturday's contest. Beaten on his chasing debut at Chepstow, the Ditcheat raider has improved immeasurably and has landed three wins on the bounce over fences, with his last one coming in a Grade 2 event at Doncaster.

Now around a 25/1 chance for the Festival Novices' Chase, the seven-year-old is the most likely winner of this race at the weekend, but many have reveled in his ability to stay, so it's no surprise to see him as short as 8/1 for the National Hunt Chase at the Cheltenham Festival. With stablemate Bravemansgame looking like the primary Festival Novices' Chase contender from the Nicholls yard, and with the classy Galopin Des Champs also sitting pretty at the head of the betting, then the National Hunt Chase could be his destination come March, and a win here would boost his chances of landing that mammoth bonus prize.

Lucinda Russell's Corach Rambler has been progressing at a rate of knots over fences, and while he holds an entry in the Classic Chase later on in the card, he is also a potential runner in the Hampton at 13:50. A comfortable winner at Cheltenham last time out, Russell's charge was handed a quote of 33/1 for the Festival Novices' Chase, but like Threeunderthrufive could be more suited by the National Hunt Chase. Also, a 33/1 chance for that marathon test, Corach Rambler will certainly give the Nicholls raider a challenge for glory here, should he line up, and both can bolster their Cheltenham claims.

A narrow winner at Wetherby last time out, Dan Skelton's Midnight River was installed as a 33/1 chance for the National Hunt Chase in March, but he needs to win this well to book his place at the festival, while adding depth to this event, Mint Condition and Doyen Bread are potential improvers and should run well in an intriguing renewal.
