Cheltenham Festival betting gets underway each year with the Supreme Novices Hurdle, a grade one event run over a distance just exceeding two miles.
The Supreme is run at a fast and furious pace as tends to be the norm at this big National Hunt Race meeting. The race attracts a large number of entrants and therefore experience of competing in similar big fields before Cheltenham is often of paramount importance.
Once again the main lesson to learn when punting on this race should be determined by the ground conditions. If the going is on the good side look for the flat bred runners as they will have the pace to take the race the reverse also holds if the ground is soft.
Recent Cheltenham Festival Form for the Supreme Novices Hurdle points towards successful entrants which have been lightly raced during the season and have acquitted themselves well in large fields. Irish entrants have a strong record in this event.
