Supreme Novices Betting Tips, Preview & Prediction

While Fiddlerontheroof and Chantry House both travel to Cheltenham with strong each-way chances, the best of the British bunch if you're looking for Supreme Novices' Hurdle 2020 tips has to be Shishkin.

Nicky Henderson’s six-year-old has been highly impressive on both of most recent starts, and should be very competitive as he makes his Cheltenham debut.

That being said, I’d rather side with the second runner baring the Donnelly’s silks, ASTERION

Despite some wayward leaps, Willie Mullins’ novice has displayed a noticeable turn-of-foot on all three of his starts this term. 

Most recently at the Dublin Racing Festival, where Asterion Forlonge swept aside a good-quality rival in Easywork to win the Chanelle Pharma by a streak.

I’m expecting Asterion Forlonge to have progressed again between runs, and I can’t see soft ground, or the uphill finish at Cheltenham causing this dazzling grey any problems.
