The Fairlawne Chase is run under the sponsor's name The Paddy Power Handicap Chase is scheduled as the feature race for the New Years Day Meeting at Cheltenham.
For 2021, the race is on Friday 1st January getting underway at 1.55pm
The race was established in 1990 as the Cleeve Hill Handicap Chase but was officially changed in 2014 to the Fairlawne Chase and was upgraded to Grade 3 status in 2009.
It is run over a distance of about 2 miles and 5 furlongs and is limited to horses aged 5 years and older.
Last year's race was abslutely fantastic with a 3 horse photo finish between Lalor, Saint Calvados and Oldgrangewood – pipping the other two by a nose, Oldgrangewood under Daniel Skelton was declared the winner!
