The Kauto Star Novices' Chase is a Grade 1 National Hunt chase in Great Britain which is open to horses aged four years or older. It is run at Kempton Park over a distance of about 3 miles (4,828 metres), and during its running there are eighteen fences to be jumped. The race is for novice chasers, and it is scheduled to take place each year during the King George VI Chase meeting on Boxing Day. The race was originally known as the Feltham Novices' Chase. The 2012 running additionally carried the name of Kauto Star (a winner of the King George VI Chase on five occasions) pending a permanent change of name.[1] The permanent name change was confirmed by the BHA in July 2013.[2]

Lizzie Kelly's victory on Tea For Two in the 2015 renewal made her the first female jockey to win a Grade One race in Britain.[3]
