Moscow Flyer Novice Hurdle Odds

The Moscow Flyer Novice Hurdle is a grade 2 event which takes place at Punchestown over a distance of two miles. The race is named after the great Moscow Flyer who is remembered as one of the greatest Irish chasers of all time and is run each January or February. Initially it was known as the Byrne Group Novice Hurdle before taking on the name of the great Moscow Flyer in 2009.

There have been a number of impressive winners of this race over the past few years with Kicking King the stand out among them. He famously won this race back in 2003 before going onto to win the Cheltenham Gold Cup later in his career which highlights how important the Moscow Flyer can be. Other recent winners include Vautour and Douvan who both went on to win the Supreme Novices Hurdle the same season so this really is a race to follow.
