2024 Mersey Novices Hurdle Betting Odds at Aintree racecourse

Saturday, 13 April 2024

We’re expecting a competitive race when it comes to the Turners Mersey Novices’ Hurdle, with Slade Steel a potential winner and there have been three successes in the space of four races this term. There was everything to like about a triumph in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle at Cheltenham and there could be more to come.

Brighterdaysahead landed a consecutive hat-trick of victories and the five-year-old runs for Gordon Elliott, with the same handler potentially having Firefox lining up. Caldwell Potter has achieved a consecutive double and could land the spoils, with Billericay Dickie landing a victory last time out.

2024 Turners Mersey Novices’ Hurdle Tips

There was plenty to like about Slade Steel’s win in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, with the horse achieving a win in the 2024 Cheltenham Festival opener. The runner was previously second to Ballyburn at the Dublin Racing Festival when losing by seven lengths and this form stacks up as pretty attractive.

Brighterdaysahead enjoyed a consecutive hat-trick of victories, with the five-year-old finishing second in his previous encounter. The horse ran in the Ryanair Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle and was sent off as the 5/6 favourite before being beaten by Golden Ace at the Cheltenham Festival.

Previously to this came a strong performance at Navan and she might profit from the weight allowance when it comes to this race. Gordon Elliott will have high hopes for the horse, although there are several other decent contenders including Caldwell Potter who has landed back to back successes.

Paul Nicholls trains a runner who was last seen winning at Leopardstown during the festive period when fending off eight other rivals, with Predators Gold beaten by over six lengths. This came after another triumph at Navan, with Jack Kennedy likely to be on board a horse who can deliver a success.
