Sky Bet Supreme Novices’ Hurdle (Grade 1)

Posted by Paul Moon in Blog | Tagged , , , | Leave a comment

Tuesday 13th March 2018 Cheltenham Festival is the first day and provides three massive races - the Supreme Novices Hurdle, the Arkle Chase and the Champion Hurdle. It is imperative we get off to a great start and we have the information to make that possible. The Racing Horse will offer its members FREE collated trends and news on ALL 28 races giving members everything we need to make a profit!

 Just as last year we will use the successful Racing Horse Richter Scale which is a numerical percentage for expressing the magnitude of an event repeating itself. The power cannot be underestimated!

For example, for this particular race there are 16 pieces of information that suggests we back something with a 90% chance or more of happening again!

The Racing Horse RICHTER SCALE: 6yo carrying 11st 7lbs who won last time out, had 3 runs that season. Rested 40 days, had 4 hurdle runs and started at 12/1


Not a great race for favourites!

The Supreme Novices’ Hurdle is the opening race of the Festival and a 2m110y hurdle race on the old course. The race is restricted to novices and often produces winners who continue to shine at the Festival in future years. It is one of the most eagerly anticipated races of the entire season though not a great race for favourites. Only two have won in the last 12 renewals but that said, only a couple of those have started longer than 12/1. The longest-priced winner was Arctic Kinsman at 50/1 in 1994.

Cheltenham roar!

Willie Mullins has won this race five times, Nicky Henderson three and Noel Meade twice. The punters always hope to get off to a good start and the Grade One has become famous for the 'Cheltenham roar' which accompanies the start of the contest. Beware, handling the ground conditions with the ability to race in large fields is key and must be considered in unison with the trends below...

By then we will have the official runners and riders and a clear idea of the ground conditions. This template has been replicated on all the other 27 races so that the reader has all the information they need to WIN at this year's Festival. It is a must-have tool and well worth the £9.95 membership charge...



Proven mathematical laws are the governing force of horse racing betting. Consequently every bet we place is conceived then predicated from statistical analysis protected by a maths-based edge with perceived value attached. Our formula is simple because we are yet to be convinced that a complication of a system is proportional to profit. So what do we mean by a maths-based edge? It means finding something with a solid mathematical core, something historically profitable and something that is unlikely to change or suffer fatigue going forward. Then, if we can filter negative influences from the original proposal and provide a sound rationale for doing so, we can claim that betting edge.


The absolute key to success in betting is the ability to identify value bet situations where the odds available are greater than the true chance of winning and then to have the discipline to methodically bet only when these situations arise. If this is done the laws of mathematics and probability dictate that in the long term, you will make a profit.
