Mildmay Novices Chase Tips
The Mildmay Novice Chase is another of the excellent races on Friday at the Grand National Festival and it is always a cracking renewal. It is run at just over the 3m1f distance so it often attracts some of the best chasers around and our selection for this race will be live closer to the race.
What is the Mildmay Novice Chase?
The Mildmay Novice Chase is Grade 1 race run over as trip of 3m1f at Aintree during the Grand National meeting and is open to horses aged five and over. The race itself is a huge prize for the first season chasers and can often point to the Gold Cup with the best of these likely to head to the Festival the following season for a crack at the biggest race in the sport.
We do tend to see a number of horses from the RSA Chase head to Liverpool looking to do the famous spring double and that Cheltenham contest and it is a cracking opportunity to run the rule over the Gold Cup horses of the future.
The history of the Mildmay Novice Chase
First run in 1981, the Mildmay has grown into one of the premier novice chases of the entire season in the intervening years.
The Mildmay tends to produce a top class winner with some legendary names on the roll of honour, especially since it was upgraded to a Grade 1 in 2014.
Might Bite famously won the Mildmay back in 2017 to complete the double having picked up the RSA Chase at Cheltenham a few weeks before, while future Gold Cup hero Native River is another stand-out name on the list.

Who is the most iconic winner of the Mildmay Novice Chase?
The near 40 year history of the Mildmay Novice Chase has seen some classy horses claim the Mildmay but it is of course difficult to pick just one winner
Big Buck's is worthy of a mention although his success would come back over hurdlers later in his career, while we have already mentioned Native River who won in Liverpool in 2016 before going on to win the Cheltenham Gold Cup in 2017.
On balance though, it is Burrough Hill Lad who takes the title as the best winner of the race with the Jenny Pitman trained star claiming the Mildmay back in 1982. The horse would go on to win a Gold Cup and a King George during his career to prove himself one of the best stayers of the 80's and his success at Aintree deserves special mention as a result.
Are there any trials for the Mildmay Novice Chase?
The Mildmay is a fantastic race for the the very best staying chasers in training across the UK and Ireland and by this stage of the spring it tends to be an excellent contest on the track at Liverpool.
The RSA Chase at the Cheltenham Festival tends to be the key race from which punters can extract form from although last season we did see Lostintranslation run in the shorter trip JLT at Prestbury Park before being stepped up in trip for the Mildmay in Liverpool.
Who is the most successful jockey in the Mildmay Novice Chase?
Richard Dunwoody won the Mildmay four times during his career with wins on Against The Grain (1987), Sparkling Flame (1991), Banjo (1995) and Cyborgo (1997) to his name in the race.
Who is the most successful trainer in the Mildmay Novice Chase?
Nicky Henderson has enjoyed five Mildmay wins so far during his career with Sparkling Flame (1991), Irish Hussar (2003), Burton Port (2010), Might Bite (2017) and Terrefort (2018) all scoring for the Seven Barrows handler.
