Horse Racing - Supreme Novices' Hurdle

This, the two-mile Novice Championship at the Cheltenham Festival for four year olds and over, is traditionally the first race of the most important meeting in the British National Hunt calendar. It was originally called the Gloucestershire Hurdle and, until 1972, was split into two or three divisions (separate races)  each year. From 1974-77 it was called the Champion Novices' Hurdle before adopting its present title in 1978.
