As part of our Cheltenham online betting guide Genie is looking forward to the betting on the Supreme Novices Hurdle, where Dunguib heads the market, now best priced at 4/5 with Paddy Power. Be sure to check out our cheltenham free bets guide if you are thinking of having a punt.
Supreme Novice’s Hurdle Preview
Irish trained horses have been successful in 7 of the last 9 runnings of the Supreme Novices Hurdle. The festival curtain raiser often throws up a surprise, with the average winning price being 10/1 in that period.
Approximately 20 horses will set off at a frantic pace in the grade 1, 2 mile race and this year is particularly intriguing as we will be looking at one of the potential future superstars of the hurdling world. A famous roar from the Cheltenham faithful will signal that the festival gets underway and we can all take our minds off the recession for 4 days at least. All going well, we might have made enough to retire by Friday at 5pm. Don’t bank on it!
Supreme Novice’s Betting
Last year the well backed favourite Cousin Vinny was seen off by Go Native. In 2010 all of the post race attention is on the hot favourite, Dunguib, who heads the market after 8 consecutive wins; 5 since coasting to victory in the Champion Bumper last year at the Festival. Proven on the track and proven in this company means that Dunguib is well deserving of his favourite mark and if you are placing a lucky 15 on tuesday you might be well advised to put Dunguib at the top of the slip. The Philip Fenton trained 7 year old with B T O’Connell on board will be going off as the odds on favourite but this is a race that has thrown up many an unfancied winner in years gone by. Dunguib loves the heavy ground and the betting line will move to reflect the weather forecast.
We will be updating the article with latest betting odds when the starting field has been confirmed. Menorah looks set to head the ‘best of the rest’ market as trainers decide whether they would be best to avoid a head-to-head with Dunguib, in favour of a run in lesser company on another day.
