The Golden Miller Novices’ Chase, presently known as the Turners Novices’ Chase for sponsorship purposes, is a Grade One National Hunt chase in Great Britain open to horses aged five and above. It is run over a distance of about 2 miles and 4 furlongs (2 miles 3 furlongs, and 168 yards, or 3,976 meters) on the New Course at Cheltenham, with seventeen obstacles to be jumped. It is a novice chaser race that takes place each year on March’s third day of the Cheltenham Festival.
The event was founded in 2011 as a new race at the Festival and was first sponsored by Jewson. From 2005 to 2010, Jewson sponsored the Jewson Novices’ Handicap Chase, a handicap event for novice chasers held on the festival’s third day. At the 2011 Festival, Jewson shifted their sponsorship to this new competition, which took the position of the Novices’ Handicap Chase on the third day, while the handicap race was relocated to the last race on the first day of the Festival and renamed the Centenary Novices’ Handicap Chase. The British Horseracing Board raised the Jewson Novices’ Chase to Grade One after its 2014 running.
