British And Irish Set For Epic Battle In Supreme Novices' Hurdle

Tuesday 11th March 2014

Punters will look to hit the ground running and kick off the 2014 Cheltenham Festival with a winner, but the 2014 Sky Bet Supreme Novices' Hurdle is a real betting minefield, as a host of leading contenders from Britain and Ireland will do battle in the curtain-raiser of what will be an electric start to the four-day national hunt extravaganza.

Paul Nicholls's Irving will spearhead the home challenge as he looks to maintain his unbeaten start to his career, but the DItcheat raider has failed to shake off Willie Mullins's Vautour at the head of the market and that pair are sure to be a popular duo in an intriguing contest, with Paddy Power offering a cracking Money Back Special.

Away from the front two in the betting there's been significant support in the morning for Enda Bolger's Gilgamboa, whilst Mullins other challenger Wicklow Brave is proving popular in the betting offices, along with Nicky Henderson's Vaniteux, who will be another flying the flag for the home battalion in a crackerjack renewal.
