Runners Revealed for Supreme Novices' Hurdle, Arkle, Champion Hurdle


Cheltenham Festival 2024: Runners Revealed for Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, Arkle, Champion Hurdle, and Tuesday’s Key Races

State Man, the Unibet Champion Hurdle runner-up, leads a competitive field of eight in the bid to secure victory at Cheltenham Festival for the second time, with Constitution Hill absent. Joining him are Colonel Mustard, Iberico Lord, Irish Point, Nemean Lion, Not So Sleepy, Zarak The Brave, and Luccia.

In the My Pension Expert Arkle, Willie Mullins unveils Gaelic Warrior, Il Etait Temps, and Hunters Yarn, among ten contenders for the Grade 1 chase, setting the stage for a thrilling opening day.

Mullins dominates the Sky Bet Supreme Novices’ Hurdle with six of the twelve entries, featuring Tullyhill and Mystical Power as the leading contenders, while Firefox and Slade Steel pose strong competition.

Close Brothers Mares’ Hurdle (4.10) favourite Lossiemouth, another of Mullins’ incredible team, will face ten rivals as Ireland’s champion trainer aims to reclaim a race he once dominated, but has not won since 2018.

The Maureen Mullins National Hunt Chase (5.30) will feature the smallest field of the day with just seven declared. Leading amateur rider Derek O’Connor was booked for Corbetts Cross. Embassy Gardens will be ridden by Patrick Mullins.

The Ultima Handicap Chase (2.50) did not attract a full field of 24, falling one runner shy, with the Lucinda Russell-trained Apple Away switching to the National Hunt Chase.

A full field of 22 will line up for the Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle (4.50), with the Fergal O’Brien-trained Teorie the final horse to make the cut. Topweight Liari stood his ground to pin the weights at 134.

The Gary Moore-trained Royal Way and the Gordon Elliott-trained pair of Barrier and Pacini were the shortest-priced runners to miss out and were priced at 16-1, 20-1 and 25-1.
