Sky Bet Supreme Novices' Hurdle

The Sky Bet Supreme Novices' Hurdle is a Grade 1 race for 4 year old and above novices hurdlers, run over a distance of 2 miles ½ furlong on the old course at Cheltenham.

It is the first race run at the festival each year and as such the atmosphere in the build up to the race and the roar that greets the start, play an important part in the way the race is run. The start of the race is at the top of the hill, which ensures the race is run at a fast gallop.

Given the pace of the race, the winning horse will need good stamina at the distance, but will also need enough basic speed to be able to keep up with the pace during the race. The winner will also need to demonstrate sound jumping ability at a fast gallop.

Last time out winners seem to hold a good advantage, unless there was a really good reason why a horse failed to win on it's last start.
