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.

The event was established when a fourth day was added to the Cheltenham Festival in 2005. The winning ride by Mattie Batchelor in the inaugural edition subsequently won the Lester Award for Jump Ride of the Year. The race has been sponsored by Jewson throughout its history.
