  • Won one of last three starts
  • Last ran in a Graded novice chase
  • Had won left-handed
  • Officially rated 144+

Did Trends Win Last Year's JLT Novices' Chase?

Shortlisted via the JLT Novices' Chase trends last year were Pravalaguna, Defi Du Seuil, and Lostintranslation - the latter two filling the first two places in the newest Cheltenham Festival novices' chase.

The Philip Hobbs-trained Defi Du Seuil the JLT Novices' Chase shortlist by winning a ‘Key Race’ (see below), the Scilly Isles Novices’ Chase at Sandown and cantering to the top of the Cheltenham betting. Lostintranslation finished second that day, and the pair had also met at Cheltenham, where Defi Du Seuil was beaten.

They ticked all the key trends, including all of the Top 5 listed above, as did Pravalaguna, with the exception of the requirement to have last run in a Graded race - her last run was winning a Listed chase.

The 14/1 shot also had not run three times that season, winning her two outings by wide margins instead. Nevertheless, she was an ideal candidate on 'Place Trends', though she could manage just ninth after hitting the fourth-last.

How Defi Du Seuil Won 2019's JLT Novices' Chase

Cheltenham Festival glory went to Defi Du Seuil in the 2019 JLT Novices' Chase, as the six-year-old justified favouritism to win by more than two lengths.

Never far from sparring partner Lostintranslation, the Barry Geraghty-ridden winner jumped the last upsides, but landed the winner and kept on strongly.


1.30 CHELTENHAM - 2019 JLT NOVICES' CHASE RESULT

  1. Defi Du Seuil 3/1f
  2. Lostintranslation 4/1
  3. Mengli Khan 9/1

Lostintranslation had been beaten by Defi Du Seuil last time out at Sandown in the Grade 1 Scilly Isles Novices' Chase, though was as short as 4/1 for the rematch, having earlier beaten him at Cheltenham.

Third was Mengli Khan, who was running beyond 2m1f for the first time and recorded a career-best effort, despite making a costly mistake three fences from home. He went on to be third in a third consecutive Grade 1 novice chase at Aintree.
