SUPREME NOVICES BETTING PREVIEW 

The Supreme Novices' Hurdle is a popular race amongst punters as they try and get off to a winning start at the Cheltenham Festival. It’s a Grade 1 National Hunt hurdle contest, run over two miles and half-a-furlong, for horses aged four years and upwards. Summerville Boy (9/1) came with a thundering rattle to get up in the 2018 renewal, just getting the better of Kalashnikov (5/1).

And now we'll take a closer look at this year's Skybet's Supreme Novices' Hurdle and try to determine which horse is likely to prevail.

AL DANCER has won all three starts since going hurdling this season and made a mockery of his opening handicap mark when winning on the New Course at Cheltenham in December. Wins over hurdles at Carlisle and Ffos Las followed, impressive in the latter when scoring an easy two lengths’ winner over Present Value to justify short odds.

ANGELS BREATH made a deep impression when winning on his Rules debut at Ascot in November. That form alone wouldn’t win him a Supreme, far from it, but you get the feeling this horse has a lot of ability and has to be respected in any line up.

MISTER FISHER is getting better all the time. He has a strong form after beating some good horses at Kempton over Christmas and easily winning the trial at Haydock last time out. Last time out he won a Grade 2 contest at Haydock and seems to act on any ground.

ARAMON has looked a very useful prospect in his starts over hurdles, winning three of his six starts this campaign. He posted an impressive ten lengths’ success over Sancta Simona at Leopardstown over the Christmas period to win the Paddy Power Future Champions Hurdle. He was involved in the Chanelle Pharma Novice Hurdle when beaten only a head behind stablemate Klassical Dream.

ELIXIR DE NUTZ, runner-up on his seasonal and stable debut at Cheltenham last October, is 3-3 since that race. A run that saw this horse winning a pair of race at this venue, including the Grade Two Sharp Novices’ Hurdle where he saw off Itchy Feet.

Other strong contenders?

ITCHY FEET beat Grand Sancy at Kempton back in October, a month later he was second in the trial race at Cheltenham but he has a break since then.

FAKIR D'OUDARIES was very impressive when winning at this trck last time out and is one of the most ante-post backed entries.

KLASSICAL DREAM had five starts in France before coming over to Ireland. The way he won on Irish debut at Leopardstown showed that he looks above average.

FELIX DESJI came into the reckoning when winning at Punchestown in January. He had been a bit disappointing but bounced back to form in emphatic style.

VISION D'HONNEUR as only 4th on his hurdles debut behind Klassical Dancer but then bolted up at Punchestown and finished 3rd last time out at Leopardstown, behind two useful novices.

THOMAS DARBY beat Elixir De Nutz at Cheltenham and wasn’t disgraced behind Mister Fisher on ground that might have been a bit too soft at Kempton.

Possible dark horses?

We mention BRANDON CASTLE (66/1) and THE BIG BITE (50/1)
