THE DOVECOTE NOVICES HURDLE IS A PATTERN RACE TRIAL FOR THE SUPREME AT THE CHELTENHAM FESTIVAL
The Dovecote Novices Hurdle is a Grade 2 affair run over a trip of two miles at Kempton Park each February. The race is a big one its own right as well as being one of the last main trials for the Supreme Novices Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival the following month.
The last horse to win both the Dovecote and the Supreme in the same season was Flown in 1992 although we have seen some excellent winners since including Sire De Grugy, who of course went onto win the Champion Chase during his career.
