2017 Supreme Novices Hurdle PT 2

He appears to have formed a quality relationship with Scudamore and the pair remain undefeated as they head towards a very big festival season – he's the justifiable favourite at this point and the 5/1 could look a snip if he winds up romping up the hill when it all gets down to business on that massive Tuesday afternoon.


Willy Mullins has the second choice here with a number of bookmakers listing Cilaos Emery at a price hovering at an 8/1 margin. He's rather lightly raced compared to Moon Racer and comes into the contest with just a pair of outings under his belt. He scored in a bumper at Punchestown last year and looked rather good doing it, acquitting himself well and then came out on his seasonal debut this year and toppled a massive field of 24 at Navan in a maiden contest when sent off at a 5/4 price tag.

It's worth noting he didn't go off as the favourite with a 5/4 price in a field of 24.

It's the only festival entry that he boasts so this is a move that you can make with confidence but the fact remains that you are effectively wagering on him to be able to show that he not only has a lot of upside but could be set to flourish if given the right type of run with a plausible ground beneath him on the day.

Another really interesting option is Melon – who is actually unraced on the National Hunt circuit under rules and is a winner on the flat in France. The five-year-old son of Medicean has been one of the hotly whispered fancies emerging in Willy Mullins yard so this is certainly a contender to keep your eye on as he hovers around a 10/1 margin right now.

Finian's Oscar is an interesting option and he comes into the race boasting an undefeated record in his three efforts for Colin Tizzard. He made his first victory a point to point contest back in late October an then was able to come into a maiden hurdle effort at Hereford and put seven lengths on his closest competitor when they actually got down to the finish line.
