The November Novices' Chase, currently known as the Racing Post Arkle Trophy Trial Novices' Chase, is a Grade 2 National Hunt chase in Great Britain which is open to horses aged four years or older. It is run on the Old Course at Cheltenham over a distance of about 2 miles (3,219 metres), and during its running there are twelve fences to be jumped. The race is for novice chasers, and it is scheduled to take place each year in November.

The event was formerly known as the Coventry Novices' Chase, and for a period it was classed at Listed level. It was given the title of the November Novices' Chase and promoted to Grade 2 status in 1994. The race was sponsored by The Independent from 2000 to 2011 before the Racing Post took over sponsorship in 2012 and renamed it the Arkle Trophy Trial Novices' Chase.
