It’s clear Champ has bundles of quality and he’s bound to improve with the step up in trip. If the RSA Chase was run on a flat-track like Aintree or Newbury, with a long run to the line, I wouldn’t be confident taking Champ on. Cheltenham, however, poses a different challenge.

Although Allaho remains a looming danger, I identified MINELLA INDO as a great 2020 RSA tip at the start of the season and I’m perfectly happy to stick with my ante-post selection.

Minella Indo hasn’t sparkled on either of his starts over fences so far, but he’s jumped like a natural on both occasions. De Bromhead’s charge ran a blinder after two similar prep-runs last season, and I’m sure Rachael Blackmore’s mount will be primed to produce his best when he makes his triumphant return to the Cheltenham Festival next month. Minella Indo looks the most likely winner.


RSA Novices’ Chase

Some would say that, along with the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, the RSA Novices’ Chase is the most important contest for novices during the entire Cheltenham Festival. Any horse hoping to claim victory in the RSA will have to be a tip-top jumper and many of its winners have gone to taste big-race glory in subsequent seasons. Our team of experts will be attempting to identify this year’s winner with their Cheltenham day 2 tips.

Arkle came to Cheltenham to win the RSA in 1963 and he was followed into the winners’ enclosure by fellow future Gold Cup winners like Lord Windemere, Bob’s Worth and Denman.
