The 2022 Supreme Novices’ Hurdle field is shaping up nicely, with Willie Mullins having enjoyed several successes in this race over the past few years. The Irish handler has scored with Champagne Fever, Vautour, Douvan and Klassical Dream among others and he looks to have some lively chances for the big race on Tuesday 16 March 2022.

Appreciate It is the market leader for the Supreme and if you compare the current bookmaker odds for the Cheltenham Festival, you will see that the seven-year-old is trading shorter than 3/1 with every bookie, although the prices might yet fluctuate between now and the start of the race.

Appreciate It came back after a 256-day break to enjoy a win at Cork although it was a win at Leopardstown in the Paddy Power Future Champions Novice Hurdle on 27 December 2020 that really had people talking and the nine-length victory as the 7/4 favourite was as impressive as it’s possible to be.

Trainer Harry Fry could have a couple of lively chances to try and topple the Mullins favourite and Metier is a horse that might come to Cheltenham off the back of a successful run in the Betfair Hurdle, with the runner having scored a consecutive hat-trick of victories.

There was plenty to like about the win in the Unibet Tolworth Novices' Hurdle which has really announced Metier’s claims, with the five-year-old potentially being the best each-way bet in the race.

Fry also trains Boothill who scored a success in the Racing To School Novices' Hurdle at Taunton in December, with more to come from a horse that was a facile winner of the above race at odds of 4/6 favourite and we could also see Third Time Lucki among the favourites on the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle racecard.
