The first race at the Cheltenham Festival on the Tuesday is the Supreme Novices Hurdle which starts at 1:30pm. Luck in running can play a big part in this fantastic race. 17 of the last 19 winners had won their previous race.
The Irish have a fantastic record in the race and Min is the current market leader latest prices for the Supreme Novices can be found here. The five year old is trained by Willie Mullins he prefers good ground and was well touted as a flying machine before his racecourse debut. He has pulled a bit in the past so will need to settle in the race.
Altoir for Nicky Henderson is certainly in with a chance after winning it’s last few races and we think Nico De Boinville could well pilot the horse on the day. Certainly we think it will be in the mix. Buveur D’dair is another possible runner for the stable he has speed and recently beat Wait for Me who run well in this race last year.
Our fancy for a big price winner though is Supasundae which is trained by Henry De Bromead. His first couple of runs over hurdles didn’t go particularly fantastic but he did win by a good few lengths on his second run and it looks like the penny could be dropping. He will need to settle and he looks to have some potential to improve so rather than go with any of the market leaders at this stage we are sticking with him. 20/1 is available at the time of writing so it might be the time to get involved.
