Cheltenham 2019: Hold your Breath for Nicky Henderson’s Angel in the Supreme Novices Hurdle

Cheltenham 2019 Betting News

Ask Dillon, an impressive maiden hurdle winner at Ascot in late December has been introduced in Betfair’s Albert Bartlett Cheltenham betting market at 33/1.  Fergal O’Brien’s charge also has an alternative entry in the Ballymore Novice Hurdle where he can be backed at 40/1 with Unibet. Read on for more Cheltenham 2019 betting news and tips…

Supreme Novices Hurdle Betting Tips

The Albert Bartlett and Ballymore Novice Hurdle are two possible targets for Nicky Henderson’s ANGELS BREATH another horse raced just once over hurdles and successful on debut at Ascot last December.

Going in to the Sky Bet Supreme Trial Novices’ Hurdle Angels Breath, an Irish point-to-point winner who was sold for €85,000, was described as “highly rated” by his trainer. Henderson’s high opinion was vindicated as his charge ran out a ready winner against some proven performers – four of his rivals were last time out winners.

This was the third time Henderson had landed this established Festival trial in five years (L’Ami Serge being successful in 2014 and Claimantakinforgan in 2017) and Angels Breath is now just 12/1 top-price (at bet365*) for the Sky Bet Supreme Novice Hurdle.

Vinndication faith justified

In a day full of informative Cheltenham Festival trials (at Ascot) Kim Bailey’s five-year-old Vinndication took his career record to six-from-six when taking a Grade 2 novice chase.  

The bumper winner, also unbeaten in three novice hurdles least season, readily accounted for three classy rivals and catapulted himself to business end of the betting in both the RSA Chase (16/1 Betvictor) and JLT Novice Chase (16/1 Betfred).  

A Walk for Paisley Park

The JLT Hurdle, better known as the Long Walk Hurdle, left the Stayers Hurdle at the 2019 Cheltenham Festival looking more baffling than ever. This has always been the very best of all Cheltenham Festival trail races with Baracouda, Big Bucks (three times), My Way de Solzen and Thistlecrack using this race as stepping stone to Cheltenham Festival glory in the three-mile showpiece race.

Whilst Paisley Park did nothing wrong in claiming his third win of the season, last season’s Albert Bartlett Novice Hurdle 13th had an easier task than anticipated when last year’s winner, Sam Spinner, who was an early faller and Unowhatimeanharry departed at halfway.  Ultimately he proved two-lengths too good for 40/1 poke West Approach.

Paisley Park’s trainer, Emma Lavelle, has tasted Cheltenham success before with Crack Away Jack (Fred Winter Juvenile Handicap Hurdle in 2008) being her first Festival winner.  

If you fancy her improving six-year-old son of Oscar can take the stayers crown Betfred is the place to head, they will give you 16/1 while keeping last year’s Stayer Hurdle winner, Penhill, on their side as 6/1 favourite.
