Skybet Supreme Trial Novices Hurdle
(The Kennel Gate)
Over the years this race has featured some top class novice hurdlers, none more so than Champion Hurdle winner Make a Stand who sauntered to success.
This season saw a small but select field of three line up with the three superpowers of jump racing of Nicholls Henderson and Mullins all represented.
All in a line with two fences to jump, Emerging Talent with Sam Twiston-Davies crashed out leaving L'ami Serge to show a ready turn of foot to dispatch Killultagh Vic with the minimum of fuss.
The meeting also saw a fascinating clash between some top novice chasers, with Ptit Zig's slick fencing and decisive change of pace making the difference in the Mitie Novices Chase ( registered as the Noel Chase ) over chasing debutante Josses Hill.
