2015 Supreme Novices Hurdle Entries
Thu, Jan 29th, 2015

Kauto Star half-brother has sights set on The Festival as entries revealed for novices' hurdles

Thursday, January 29, 2015 – Entries are revealed today for the three Grade One novices' hurdles at The Festival – the Sky Bet Supreme Novices' Hurdle (Champion Day, Tuesday, March 10), the Neptune Investment Management Novices' Hurdle (Ladies Day, Wednesday, March 11) and the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle (Gold Cup Day, Friday, March 13).

There are also entries for the Grade One JCB Triumph Hurdle (Gold Cup Day), which is restricted to four-year- olds.

2/1 ante-post favourite Douvan tops 84 entries for the £120,000 Sky Bet Supreme Novices' Hurdle over an extended two miles. The five-year-old is unbeaten in two starts for Ireland's champion Jump trainer Willie Mullins and was not extended to win the Grade Two sportinglife.com Moscow Flyer Novice Hurdle at Punchestown on January 10.

Mullins accounts for 18 of the 38 Irish-trained horses and is seeking a third consecutive win in the Sky Bet Supreme Novices' Hurdle following on from Vautour and Champagne Fever. The Co Carlow handler has also put in another ex-French horse Alvisio Ville, a facile winner at Leopardstown over Christmas, Grade One Royal Bond Novice Hurdle victor Nichols Canyon and Tell Us More, who was narrowly beaten by stable companion McKinley in the Grade One Lawlor's Hotel Novice Hurdle at Naas on January  4.

Dermot Weld has two engaged, headed by last year's Weatherbys Champion Bumper hero Silver Concorde, while Henry de Bromhead is responsible for Grade One scorer Sizing John and the unbeaten Identity Thief.

L'Ami Serge is the shortest-priced British-trained entry at 9/2 after three impressive victories since joining Nicky Henderson. The French import recorded a 14-length victory in the Grade One Tolworth Hurdle on his latest start at Sandown Park on January 3.

Henderson has also entered Peace And Co, who is ante-post favourite for the JCB Triumph Hurdle, Doncaster scorer Cardinal Walter and Aintree maiden hurdle winner Hunters' Hoof.

Other eye-catching entries include Jollyallan (Harry Fry) and Seedling (Warren Greatrex), who are both unbeaten in three starts over hurdles this season, plus high-class Flat recruit Dabadiyan (Gary  Moore).
