The Finale Juvenile Hurdle is a Grade 1 National Hunt hurdle race in Great Britain which is open to horses aged three years. It is run at Chepstow over a distance of about 2 miles and 110 yards (3,319 metres), and during its running there are eight hurdles to be jumped. The race is for novice hurdlers, and it is scheduled to take place each year during the Welsh National meeting in late December.

It is the first of three Grade 1 juvenile hurdle events to be run in the British jump racing season, followed by the Triumph Hurdle and the Anniversary 4-Y-O Novices' Hurdle.
