Supreme Novices' Hurdle Tips

Cheltenham Tips

What is the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle?

The Supreme Novices’ Hurdle is the traditional curtain-raiser of the Cheltenham Festival, held on the first day of the Cheltenham Festival in March, known as Champion Tuesday. The race, a Grade 1 contest over two miles and 87 yards, has been won by some legendary names over the years, including Flyingbolt, L’Escargot, Sprinter Sacre and Altior.  

Punters will understandably be keen to get off to a flying start, and as a result the market regularly changes throughout the season. Make sure you keep your eyes peeled on horseracing.net for expert views and analysis on the 2020 Supreme Novices’ Hurdle as the picture becomes clearer.

What happened in the 2020 Supreme Novices’ Hurdle?

A field of 16 lined up for the hugely-competitive Supreme Novices' Hurdle with the Willie Mullins-trained Asterion Forlonge being sent off the clear favourite. Setting the pace from the outset, Asterion Forlonge jumped to his right and he hampered the smooth-travelling Elixir D'Ainay,who fell as the race got into the latter stages. However, in behind Abacadabras and Shishkin, who drifted markedly in the betting all day, were cruising and duly pulled clear of the leader, who struggled to keep up the gallop. Jumping the final flight upsides each other, it was Shishkin that just managed to find enough in the tank to edge out his adversary and won on the nod. Chantry House stayed on best of the race to take third spot.

The history of the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle

The Supreme Hurdle was originally known as the Gloucestershire Hurdle, and would be split into either two or three divisions for the first 25 years or so of its lifespan. The legendary trainer Vincent O’Brien dominated the race during this period, winning on ten occasions during the 1950s. The race began being known as the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle in 1978, when Waterford Crystal began to sponsor it. The race has had several different sponsors since, and is currently supported by Sky Bet. A host of Supreme winners have gone on to taste further success at the Cheltenham Festival, including the 2016 winner Altior, who has won the 2017 Arkle Trophy and the 2018 and 2019 renewals of the Champion Chase since. 

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

There are plenty of Supreme winners who have gone on to bigger and better things, but perhaps none more so than Altior, who has won at the Cheltenham Festival on three occasions since claiming victory in the 2016 renewal of the race. Having made three starts in bumpers, Altior has well and truly come into his own over obstacles, and has yet to suffer a defeat over them, winning 19 races and counting. He has picked up four festival wins in that time, with the first coming in the 2016 Supreme, before winning the 2017 Arkle Trophy and the 2018 and 2019 renewals of the Champion Chase. Plenty of racing fans and pundits have expressed a strong desire for Altior to step up to three miles and have a crack at the 2019 King George VI Chase at Kempton, though whether connections decide to do so in the 2019/20 season remains to be seen.  

Are there any trials for the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle?

There are several races to note in terms of the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle throughout the season, with the most significant being the Tolworth Hurdle at Sandown and the Betfair Hurdle at Newbury. Other races to note include the Sharp Novices’ Hurdle and the National Hunt Novices’ Hurdle (both at Cheltenham), the Kennel Gate Novices’ Hurdle (Ascot), the Dovecote Novices’ Hurdle (Kempton), the Supreme Trial (Haydock), the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle (Cheltenham) and the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle Trial (Kempton). Over in Ireland, it could be worth keeping an eye on the Royal Bond Novice Hurdle at Fairyhouse, and the Future Champions Novice Hurdle and the Deloitte Novice Hurdle, which are both at Leopardstown.

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

The most successful jockey in the history of the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle is Ruby Walsh, who has six wins. Walsh’s six Supreme wins have come on board Noland (2006), Al Ferof (2011), Champagne Fever (2013), Vautour (2014), Douvan (2015) and Klassical Dream (2019). 

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

The most successful trainer in the history of the Champion Hurdle is Willie Mullins, who has six wins to his name. Willie Mullins’ six Supreme Novices’ Hurdle wins have come courtesy of Tourist Attraction (1995), Ebaziyan (2007), Champagne Fever (2013) Vautour (2014), Douvan (2015) and Klassical Dream (2019).
