The Sky Bet Supreme Novices’ Hurdle is traditionally the opening race of the Cheltenham Festival.

The Supreme is the championship race for novice hurdlers and highlights the best up-and-coming talent over the shorter 2 mile trip.

With fields of up to 19 runners in recent times, online bookmakers are always looking to start the Cheltenham Festival with a bang by giving away opening race offers including 4 places each way on the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle. Of course, offering 4 places each way is an excellent way to offer maximum profit opportunity for punters and is a promotion which will drive 2024 Cheltenham Festival new customer registrations for savvy bookmakers.

2024 Supreme Novices' Hurdle 4 Places Each Way

The Sky Bet Supreme Novices’ Hurdle has seen some top-notch talent and winners in recent years. 2020 saw Nicky Henderson trained Shishkin win at 5/1 following on from 2019 victor Klassical Dream who won under Ruby Walsh at 6/1. 2017 saw the quirky Labaik beat favourites Melon and Ballyandy after being backed-in from 40/1 to 25/1 at the off in what proved to be a huge training performance from Gordon Elliott. 2016 saw the impressive Nicky Henderson trained Altior beat the Willie Mullins trained 15/8 favourite Min by a distance. That win for Altior was amazingly Henderson’s first win in the Supreme Novices’ since 1992 and burst Willie Mullins run of 3 consecutive Cheltenham Festival opener winners. Mullins had saddled Champagne Fever (2013), Vautour (2014) and Douvan (2015) – all piloted by Ireland’s Number 1 jockey Ruby Walsh.

With anything up to 19 runners across recent stagings, online bookmakers pay out the standard 3 places each way at either 1/4 odds or more often 1/5 odds for this level-weight race. However the Supreme is so popular with punters desperate for a serious bet, that a bookmaker or two may well introduce an additional place with 4 places each way on the opening race of the 2024 Cheltenham Festival a distinct possibility. 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.
