Mildmay Novices' Chase
The Mildmay Novices' Chase is a Grade 2 National Hunt chase in Great Britain which is open to horses aged five years or older. It is run on the Mildmay course at Aintree over a distance of about 3 miles and 1 furlong (5,029 metres), and during its running there are nineteen fences to be jumped. The race is for novice chasers, and it is scheduled to take place each year during the Grand National meeting in early April.
The event was established in 1981, and its first two winners – Bregawn and Burrough Hill Lad – both went on to win the Cheltenham Gold Cup. The race used to be regularly sponsored by Mumm, but it has had several different sponsors since 2001. The latest of these, Matalan, began supporting the event in 2009.
The Mildmay Novices' Chase usually features horses which ran previously in the RSA Chase, and the last to win both races was Star de Mohaison in 2006.
