The JLT Novices’ Chase has become an integral part of the Festival in a short period of time and this looks a competitive renewal.

Terrefort (4/1 BetBright) from the Nicky Henderson yard has only had two starts in the UK but he's already a Group 1 winner and seems suited by plenty of give in the ground.

He has plenty of experience from his time in France and given his scope for further improvement, I've backed him to win this.

I grew up watching Hearts games with my dad and playing football at every opportunity so betting on it was the logical next step! Football coupons became a Saturday ritual and it introduced me into the world of horse racing. I started watching it on a regular basis, and after Galileo's Derby win in 2001 I was hooked. I follow both flat and national hunt racing attending the northern meetings when possible.
