The Sky Bet Supreme Novices’ Hurdle Race

The traditional curtain raiser for the Cheltenham Festival, the roar that erupts from Prestbury Park as the starter sends the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle runners on their way can be heard for miles around. Only the slickest novice will be good enough to triumph over this trip and earn themselves a spot in horse racing folklore.

Flyingbolt and L’Escargot won the Supreme during the 1960s and they’ve since been joined on the honour’s boards by Brave Inca, Douvan and Altior, who all went on to secure more prestigious prizes at future Cheltenham Festival.
