Latest Supreme Novices’ Hurdle Odds – Facile Vega Heads The Betting
The Cheltenham odds for the opening race of the 2023 Cheltenham Festival indicate that Facile Vega will go off as the betting favourite to win the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle.
The 6-year-old gelding currently heads the market at odds of around 2/1 with the best horse racing betting sites. Facile Vega won his first six racing starts in 2021 and 2022 and has went off as the favourite in every one of his racing starts.
The Irish racehorse has won at Cheltenham before which is one reason why he is the bookies favourite to win the Supreme. Facile Vega triumphed in the Champion Bumper last year at the Festival, winning by an impressive four lengths.
It comes as no surprise to see him as the overriding bookies favourite here in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, given his Cheltenham pedigree and experience from last year. He certainly looks the strongest horse in the race and is certainly the one to beat here in the 2023 Cheltenham Festival opener.
Trainer Willie Mullins has real faith in his 6-year-old and will be hoping for the best possible start at this year’s Festival. If Facile Vega were to go on to win, this would be Mullins’ 89th winner at the Cheltenham Festival.
Facile Vega’s biggest threat in the race come from the Barry Connell trained Marine Nationale. He is the second favourite in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle on Tuesday and it is clear to see why. He has won on each of his five racing starts, including two wins over hurdles. The Irish gelding is priced at odds of around 4/1 with the best Cheltenham betting sites.
Three other Mullins’ horses in Impaire Et Passe, Gaelic Warrior and Il Etait Temps could pose a huge threat to Facile Vega as well. However, if Facile Vega is on top form, he will be hard to stop here in the opener on Day 1 of the Cheltenham Festival.
