Supreme Novices’ Hurdle Odds
A free for all is certainly one way to describe the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle and there is arguably no better race for kicking off the annual Cheltenham Festival. The fact it is the first race of the four-day meeting means that Supreme Novices’ Hurdle odds tend to be very popular and the buzz in the betting ring and in the stands is unexplainable.
Find a horse in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle odds who can handle rough big fields
Horses wanting things all their own way and who are not accustomed to rougher races with lots of jockeying for position are best avoided in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle odds. With a big field always guaranteed, finding a path through the field is often difficult and because the race is loaded with talented, but novice hurdlers, lots of slow and clumsy jumping is often on show.
Therefore, it is easy to run into the back of an erratic jumper or a horse not taking well to the demands of the hilly Cheltenham course. Plotting the correct racing line and steering clear of trouble are almost as important as having a talented horse in the 2m tear up.
Irish dominating the early Supreme Novices’ Hurdle odds
There will be lots of chopping and changing in the Supreme Novices betting in the run up to Cheltenham, but it is the potential Irish entrants currently dominating. Lovethehigherlaw and Waaheb are both fancied to perform well in the Cheltenham opener, while Allure of Illusion could hand trainer Willie Mullins a record third victory in the race.
