The Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle, formerly the Neptune Novices’ Hurdle, is the opening race on Ladies Day at the Cheltenham Festival.

Registered as the Baring Bingham Novices’ Hurdle, it’s a Grade 1 race run over 2 and a half miles for enterprising novice hurdlers. Won recently by the Mullins trained superstars Faugheen and Yorkhill, the race has varied in entry numbers from as few as 8 in 2013 – the year that The New One triumphed – through to 17 back in 2010 and 2012.

For the 2024 Cheltenham Festival any field approaching 15 or more runners is very likely to see 4 places each way offered by online bookmakers, meaning an additional place over and above the standard 3 places each way. Of course, offering 4 places each way in the Ballymore is an excellent way to offer maximum profit opportunity for punters and is a promotion which will undoubtedly drive 2024 Cheltenham Festival new customer registrations for savvy bookmakers.

2024 Ballymore Novices' Hurdle 4 Places Each Way

The Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle has seen plenty of quality winners over the years. Danoli, Istabraq and Hardy Eustace have all won this in their novice year. Since 2010, Simonsig, The New One, Faugheen and Yorkhill have all triumphed for Nicky Henderson, Nigel Twiston-Davies and Willie Mullins respectively. Simonsig went on to win the 2012 Arkle, Faugheen the 2015 Champion Hurdle plus 2016 Irish Champion Hurdle, with 2016-winner Yorkhill winning the JLT in 2017. Willoughby Court beat 2/1 favourite Neon Wolf in 2017 and 2018 saw the most popular victory for years as the hugely popular Irish raider and odds-on favourite Samcro dominated. Envoi Allen and Bob Olinger have continued the Irish domination in this race.

With anything up to 17 runners across recent stagings, online bookmakers up until now have paid the standard 3 places each way at 1/4 odds and more commonly 1/5 odds for this Ballymore Novices’ championship hurdle. However 2024 could see this change as the competitive nature of the online bookmaker industry would make any field of 15 or more runners rife for an additional each way place. We could certainly see 4 places each way for the Ballymore in 2024. It’s worth remembering as a punter that the big online bookmakers have a new customer war chest for the Cheltenham Festival, so offering additional each way places attracts new customers who spot the value to be had. Naturally 4 places covers circa 25% of the field – a situation which can only drive the chances of profit.

At the time of writing, no bookmakers have extended beyond the standard 3 places each way terms. As soon as this changes we’ll confirm details here.

We track the value provided by online bookmakers across the major National Hunt races. Extended each way terms gives punters a huge boost in terms of profit potential and is the perfect promotion for those who love to back big priced long-shots. With some High Street bookmakers still categorically giving their customers the standard each way terms, knowledgeable punters have been using online bookmakers who have been offering far better value to their customers now for years.

The 2024 renewal of the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle could be the year that sees online bookmakers offering extended each way place for the first time.
