BALLYMORE NOVICES HURDLE BETTING PREVIEWThe Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle will open day two of the Cheltenham Festival. The race has changed sponsor this year, as it had been known as the Neptune Investment Management Novices' Hurdle. The contest is a Grade 1 hurdle race covering two miles and five furlongs, for horses aged four years and upwards. It is one of the best novice hurdle races of the season and usually brings together some of the best up and coming horses.
In the last ten years alone we have seen the likes of Faugheen, The New One, Simonsig, Peddlars Cross and Yorkhill stride to victory in the Ballymore.
Who will win the Ballymore Novices Hurdle 2021?We'll take a closer look at this year's Ballymore Novices' Hurdle and try to determine which horse is likely to prevail in this contest.
APPRECIATE IT, METIER, BALLYADAM and DREAL DEAL all look set to lock horns in the Supreme Novices' Hurdle,
BOB OLINGER is the #1 favorite and comes here in search of a hat-trick of wins. The six-year-old's most recent win came in the Grade One Lawlor's of Naas Novice Hurdle, where he travelled supremely strongly. That day he bested Blue Lord, who has since run well as a staying on third when dropped back in trip at the Dublin Racing Festival.
GAILLARD DU MESNIL has recently recorded two wins at Leopardstown including a victory in the 2m6f Grade 1 at the Dublin Racing Festival. That victory put him towards the head of the market after he beat Gentlemansgame by 5 lengths.
Paul Nicholls' BRAVEMANSGAME was last seen creating a favourable impression when hammering the likes of Star Gate and The Glancing Queen in the Challow Hurdle at Newbury by an emphatic 10 lengths back in December.
BEAR GHYLLS is unbeaten in four starts but lacks a Grade 1 victory. He has won races at Lingfield, Ffos Las and Exeter all in much weaker company. He shapes as though a stronger pace will suit him but his jumping will have to improve if he is to be involved in the business end of this race.
The Tom Lacey trained ADRIMEL also comes in this race unbeaten over hurdles. He recorded his first Grade 2 success last time in the Leamington Novices’ Hurdle at Warwick when upped in trip to 2m5f for the first time.
