Supreme Novices Hurdle

Cheltenham Racecourse
A Brief History Of Supreme Novices Hurdle
The Supreme Novices' Hurdle is a Grade 1 National Hunt hurdle race for four-year-old and above novices run over a distance of 2 miles 110 yards (3,319 metres) at Cheltenham Racecourse during the Cheltenham Festival in March. There are eight hurdles to be jumped in the race.

It is traditionally the first race at the Cheltenham Festival, and the race was known until 1974 as the Gloucestershire Hurdle. Prior to 1972 the race was split into separate divisions, usually two, but in both 1946 and 1963 there were three races.
