Supreme Novices Hurdle

13:30 Cheltenham - Supreme Novices Hurdle

Dysart Dynamo was last seen in the Grade 2 Moscow Flyer where he made all to record a nineteen-length victory, setting an almost relentless gallop yet looking in complete command throughout and at the same time also capable of more if needed, finishing a full ten seconds faster than a couple of other two-mile hurdle races on the card. Unbeaten in four, he looks to have bags of potential and for me should be capable of emulating the likes of Vautour and Douvan in following up a victory in the Moscow Flyer with a win in the opener.

Constitution Hill demolished rivals in the Grade 1 Tolworth Hurdle at Sandown in January, travelling strongly and jumping both fluently and economically, easing clear of the chasing pack to win by twelve lengths. As visually impressive as he was in victory, the horses that finished second and third were only rated in the 120’s and although both arrived with multiple victories to their respective names, these victories came over intermediate trips so while there is no denying he is a hugely exciting prospect I would be a little wary of the bare form especially at such a short price.

Mighty Potter doesn’t quite look the finished article as yet, however has gone a long way to suggest he has the potential to go far, winning by almost thirty lengths on hurdles debut before an encouraging third in the Grade 1 Royal Bond in November, staying on very strongly on the run in to go down by just over a length. He put that experience to good use when seeing off the challenge of Three Strip Life to win a Grade 1 at Leopardstown in December and although a little quirky is undoubtedly a talented individual so warrants plenty of respect and looks the best each way option for those wanting to hedge their bets.
