2023 Formby Novices Hurdle Betting Odds at Aintree racecourse

Tuesday, 26 December 2023

Authorised Speed looks to be a worthy favourite and trainer Gary Moore will feel confident that his horse can continue to have the winning feeling. The leading horse racing betting sites have three runners trading at a much shorter price than their adversaries, with Arctic Bresil third favourite in the market behind Tahmuras.

Tahmuras lines up for trainer Paul Nicholls and is the highest-rated horse in the field, although some punters will be looking to place an each-way bet on Arctic Bresil considering we see the classic Henry de Bromhead – Rachael Blackmore combination, with the horse trading at a backable price.

2023 Tolworth Novices’ Hurdle Tips

Authorised Speed is a talented six-year-old bidding for a consecutive hat-trick of wins. After finishing an impressive fifth place in last year’s Champion Bumper at the Cheltenham Festival (at odds of 50/1), the horse claimed a victory at Lingfield Park in November when triumphing in a Maiden Hurdle.

There was further success in a Novices’ Hurdle at Sandown Park although we don’t know how good this horse is in esteemed company and perhaps the odds have gone a little too short about a runner who will have plenty to beat in the Tolworth Novices’ Hurdle, especially as Tahmuras has been impressive.

Paul Nicholls will have high hopes for a horse who won a fairly competitive Novices’ Hurdle at Haydock Park in mid-November, with the runner obliging as favourite when winning by over five lengths. Previously to this, there had been an eight-length win when claiming a win in a Maiden Hurdle.

Arctic Bresil is the Irish raider who is something of an unknown quantity, with the six-year-old winning a twenty-two runner race when winning a Maiden Hurdle at Cork Racecourse. Nemean Lion and Colonel Harry come next in the betting, with punters advised to compare the best horse racing odds.
