Cheltenham Tips

What is the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle?

The Baring Bingham Novices’ Hurdle (currently known as the Ballymore for sponsorship reasons) is the opening race on day two of the Cheltenham Festival, Ladies Day, which is traditionally held on a Wednesday in March. A Grade 1 novice hurdle, the Baring Bingham is run over two miles and five furlongs and is currently sponsored by Ballymore Properties - which is in its second association with the race. 

The history of the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle

The Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle was established in 1971, initially as the Aldsworth Hurdle, before the title was changed to honour Baring Bingham, who organised the first Cheltenham Festival in 1902. The winner of the race regularly follows up at future Cheltenham Festivals, with the most prolific alumnus perhaps being Istabraq, who won the Baring Bingham in 1997, before going on to win three successive renewals of the Champion Hurdle in 1998, 1999 and 2000. The most recent winner of the Baring Bingham to win another race at a subsequent festival is Yorkhill, who won this race in 2016 before winning the JLT Novices’ Chase the following year.  

What happened in the 2020 Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle?

A stellar field lined up for the 2020 Ballymore Novices' Hurdle, but the betting was all about one horse Envoi Allen, who was a winner in the 2019 Champion Bumper, and the Gordon Elliott-trained superstar was sent off the 4/7 favourite. Stalking the leaders throughout the contest, Envoi Allen was travelling smoothly, but coming down the hill he had some work to do as The Big Getaway and Easywork kicked for home. However, Russell gradually reeled in the leaders and Envoi Allen duly pulled clear to send favourite backers into raptures.

Who is the most iconic winner of the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle?

The roll of honour for the Baring Bingham Novices’ Hurdle contains some illustrious names, including that of the 2002 winner Galileo (not that one!), though one name that stands out in particular is the 2014 winner of the race, Faugheen. Carrying the familiar Rich Ricci colours, it didn’t take Faugheen long to make a lasting impression on the sport, and having made a winning debut in a bumper in May 2013, he racked off three facile successes over hurdles the following season, which led to him being sent off as a strong 6/4 favourite for the 2014 Baring Bingham Novices’ Hurdle. Faugheen won in commanding fashion, and he would continue doing so, winning the 2015 Champion Hurdle on his way to recording ten straight victories, and earning himself the nickname “Faugheen The Machine”. Nichols Canyon would end his unbeaten run in November 2015, and although he quickly bounced back with back-to-back Grade 1 wins, he would be ruled out of the 2016 festival through injury. His highly-publicised injury issues would deliver a considerable chink into his armour, and Faugheen was arguably never the same again, finishing only sixth in the 2018 Champion Hurdle. However, he had one final trick up his sleeve, and recorded his final victory in the Champion Stayers’ Hurdle at the 2018 Punchestown Festival a month later, making all to score by 13 lengths. A noble third in the Cheltenham equivalent followed at the 2019 festival, before Faugheen bowed out in the Aintree Hurdle a month later, when reportedly suffering a heart problem. 

Are there any trials for the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle?

There are several notable trial races for the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle, with the most important of those being the Challow Novices’ Hurdle at Newbury, the Tolworth Hurdle at Sandown, and the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle at Cheltenham on Festival Trials Day. There are two more Ballymore-sponsored races to note at Cheltenham prior to that (in November and on New Year’s Day), whilst it is also worth keeping an eye on the Persian War Novices’ Hurdle (Chepstow), the Winter Novices’ Hurdle (Sandown), the Heroes Introductory Hurdle (Newbury), and the Leamington Novices’ Hurdle (Warwick). Over in Ireland, races to note are the Monksfield Novice Hurdle and the Navan Novice Hurdle at Navan, and the Deloitte Novice Hurdle at Leopardstown. 

Who is the most successful jockey in the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle?

The joint-most successful jockey in the history of the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle is Ruby Walsh, who has ridden four winners of the race, courtesy of Fiveforthree (2008), Mikael d’Haguenet (2009), Faugheen (2014) and Yorkhill (2016).

Who is the most successful trainer in the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle?

The most successful trainer in the history of the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle is Willie Mullins, who has trained the winner of the race on four occasions. Like Ruby Walsh, Mullins’ four winners in the Baring Bingham came with Fiveforthree (2008), Mikael d’Haguenet (2009), Faugheen (2014) and Yorkhill (2016).
