The RSA Insurance Novices’ Chase is the 2nd race to take place on day 2 of the Cheltenham Festival. Day 2 is Ladies Day where both men and women traditionally dress to impress and enjoy a day of racing, fun and glamour.

The RSA Chase takes place on the Cheltenham old course and is run over a distance of approximately 3 miles and 80 yards with 20 fences to be jumped.

The race was first introduced in 1946 as the Broadway Novices’ Chase but has had various names over the years due to sponsorship with the current sponsor being RSA Insurance.
