The Jewson Novices' Handicap Chase is a Listed National Hunt chase in Great Britain which is open to horses aged five years or older. It is run on the New Course at Cheltenham over a distance of about 2 miles and 5 furlongs (4,225 metres), and during its running there are seventeen fences to be jumped. It is a handicap race for novice chasers, and it is scheduled to take place each year during the Cheltenham Festival in March.
