Where To Bet on Supreme Novices' Hurdle 2020

The Supreme Novices Hurdle usually kicks off the Cheltenham Festival.

The race is a Grade 1 National Hunt hurdle race that is run on the Old Course at Cheltenham Racecourse in Cheltenham, England.

The course is open to all horses four years and older, though the fact that the race is targeted towards novices means that winning horses typically don't re-enter the event.

The course stretches nearly 3,300 metres and there are eight hurdles that must be jumped. As the name suggests, this event is open to novice hurdlers.

As this is the first event of the Festival, the race is preceded by the "Cheltenham Roar", which is when the onlookers shout and yell to bring in the start of the Cheltenham Festival.

The purse for this event is usually a little over £100,000.

The race was initially known as the Gloucestershire Hurdle and was first run in 1946.


The defending champion in this race is "Klassical Dream", who was ridden by Ruby Walsh and trained by Willie Mullins.

Willie Mullins has had a great deal of success in this event, as his horses have won four of the last seven races.
