FAV in Supreme Novices Racing Odds

The current state of play for Supreme Novices Odds 2022 is that we have joint-favourites in the form of CONSTITUTION HILL and DYSART DYNAMO.

They are a current quote of 9/4 in the Cheltenham Festival betting odds* (odds recorded at 17:54 GMT on March 14th, 2022 at Paddy Power).

Dysart Dynamo is unbeaten over four trips, the last two being over the hurdles and those were both secured by a wide margin.

He looks something special from trainer Willie Mullins and is expected to make a big impact at the Supreme Novices.

But he is unlucky to get things all his own way because of the presence of Constitution Hill, trained by Nicky Henderson.

It has also been two wins from two over the hurdles for Constitution Hill.

No one has laid a glove on him so far, both successes happening at Sandown. The latter of those, in January, was the Grade 1 Tolworth.

Supreme Novices Betting Contenders

There is obviously a very strong pairing at the head of the market for the Supreme Novices’ betting 2022. But what about the rest of the field?

JONBON is no mug and he is another that will be putting his unbeaten record on the table when he lines up on Tuesday.

Another of Henderson’s charades in the field, Jonbon is a good, hard-working horse with a great attitude.

It has been three wins from three over the hurdles for Jonbon and the last two were in pattern company and naturally looks to have even more to come.

Jonbon is a quote of 11/2* (odds recorded at 17:54 GMT on March 14th, 2022 at Paddy Power).

KILCRUIT may be one to consider for the shortlisted as well after picking up a success at Punchestown on his latest run.

That was a notable improvement from him after being dropped back to the 2m mark.

Kilcruit has Cheltenham experience too having taken a runner up spot at last year’s Champion Bumper.

MIGHTY POTTER brings reasonable each-way claims to the table for this one as he has been in decent shape and adds to what is a cracking renewal.

Supreme Novices Tips & Predictions Cheltenham Festival 2022

What a renewal of the Supreme Novices this is because it is just stacked with high-class talent.

It should be a thriller if the leading contenders all bring their top form.

Trainer Nicky Henderson has a strong hand in this one and JONBON just gets the nod at 5/1* (odds recorded at 17:54 GMT on March 14th, 2022 at Paddy Power).

He fits the trends very well for this fixture and brings some proven form from back to back Grade 2 success.

If the pace of the race goes his way, then he could upset the favourites.

So it is Jonbon that tops things out for our Surpeme Novices tips 2022.

Stablemate CONSTITUTION HILL warrants plenty of respect after storming the Tolworth, and the other selection that is worth a look is KILCRUIT.

The latter brings something the rest of the key contenders don’t, and that is the previous Cheltenham form from his big effort in last year’s Champion Bumper.
