2022 Supreme Novices' Hurdle Tips

6100 Showlhs N
The first race of the Cheltenham Festival, the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle kicks off the festival in fine fashion and it’s greeted with the “Cheltenham Roar".

Starting the festival with a Grade One race is the perfect opener and the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle has a history of producing both upset results and seeing some of the best future jumpers take flight.

Names such as Vautour, Douvan and Altior grace the past winners’ list, and the 2022 renewal of this great race could produce another superstar.

Supreme Novices’ Hurdle History


Originally called the Gloucestershire Hurdle and run in two divisions, it was changed to the Champion Novices’ Hurdle in 1974 and now races under the title of Supreme Novices’ Hurdle. 

There are eight hurdles to jump for the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle runners and the shorter distances makes for an exciting contest and it gets the crowd fired up.

The “Cheltenham Roar” is a special attribute for the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle and it’s what makes the race a great way to open the Cheltenham Festival.

The Supreme Novices’ Hurdle was dominated in the early stages by Vincent O’Brien, who trained an incredible 10 winners during a 15-year period. That included eight wins in nine years with only the Fred Rimell-trained Tokoroa getting in the way of nine-straight victories. 

In more recent times, Willie Mullins has been the most successful trainer with five victories, including three in a row from 2013-2015.

Probably the most famous wins in recent times, Mullins lined up the likes of Champagne Fever, Vautour and the well-backed Douvan.

Champion jockey Ruby Walsh has five wins to his name and most notably scoring three straight wins for Willie Mullins. 

In 2020, Sishkin claimed the top prize, powering home and holding off Abacadabras to hand Nicky Henderson his fourth victory in this great race.
