The Racing Post Novice Chase is a Grade One National Hunt chase held at Leopardstown, Ireland, as part of their Winter Carnival equivalent. The race is run over a distance of 2 miles and 1 furlong and during its running there are 11 fences to be jumped.
The race is run on the 26th December, which is known in Ireland as St Stephen's Day, and is one of the feature races of the course's four-day Christmas Festival.
Prior to 2011, it was titled the Bord Na Mona With Nature Novice Chase, and before 2009 it was titled the Durkan New Homes Novice Chase.
The contest has been the Willie Mullins show in recent years, with three of his top chasers; Douvan, Min, and most recently Footpad beginning life here.
