Neptune Novices’ Hurdle Race Betting Odds


The Ballymore Properties Novices’ Hurdle Race – 13:30PM

The Ballymore Properties Novices’ Hurdle is a Grade 1 hurdle race for the best middle distance prospect around.

Staged over the two mile five furlong course, it requires both speed and stamina in similar measure and the winner is almost certainly going to prove top class as a second season hurdler, or indeed a novice chaser.

 

In 2017, Willoughby Court outstayed Neon Wolf to provide Ben Pauling with a first Cheltenham Festival success. That horse has subsequently proved to be a top class novice chaser and is now favourite for the Grade 1 JLT Novices Chase at the 2018 Cheltenham Festival.  So – which of the main contenders this year will put their hand up as the Ballymore winner?

Main Players

The Cheltenham betting market is dominated by the looming presence of trainer Gordon Elliott’s highly exciting Samcro, a horse that has looked a bit of a tank in his hurdling starts to date. Despite a hold up in his preparations over Christmas, all is reported to be A1 now and he is very much the one they all have to beat.

Nicky Henderson’s On The Blind Side is very much the most legitimate danger for the UK trained contingent. You can still get 7/1 in a place or two if you shop around the online bookmakers offering prices for Cheltenham Ladies Day races at the Festival!
