Leamington Novices' Hurdle Trends
Tue, Jan 8th, 2013

The Leamington Novices Hurdle is a Grade 2 run at Warwick in early January over 2 miles 5 furlongs.

It should be a pointer to the Neptune Investment Management Novices Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival and shares the same sponsor in 2013. The roll of honour includes subsequent World Hurdle winner Inglis Drever and a future Hennesy winner in Carruthers. The 2012 renewal was won by Cotton Mill who appeared to be running a big race before ducking out at Cheltenham.

Nigel Twiston Davies, Aintree Bumper winner The New One created a good impression was an imppressive winner of the 2013 renewal:
