Rising Stars Novices Chase – Grade2
The Rising Stars Novices’ Chase is a Grade 2 National Hunt steeplechase in Great Britain which is open to horses aged four years or older. It is run at Wincanton over a distance of about 2 miles and 4 furlongs (2 miles 4 furlongs and 35 yards, or 4,225 metres), and during its running there are seventeen fences to be jumped. The race is for novice chasers, and it is scheduled to take place each year in early November.
The event was formerly held at Chepstow, where it was contested over 2 miles and 3½ furlongs. For a period it was scheduled to be run in February, and it was switched to November in 1994. The race was transferred to Wincanton and extended to its present length in 2004.
