2023 Future Champions Novice Hurdle Betting Odds at Leopardstown racecourse

Wednesday, 27 December 2023

Down Memory Lane looks to be the pick of the Gordon Elliott-trained runners, with the five-year-old having racked up a number of eye-catching wins, with the JP McManus-owned charge looking like a strong contender although the same can be said of Daddy Long Legs. The four-year-old won his only outing to date and there could be more to come.

It’s For Me could also go well for Mullins, with the five-year-old registering a victory last time out, while Firefox has won back to back races this season and could be the pick of the each-way contenders. Ballyburn, Farren Glory and Mirazur West are other horses who could be on the shortlist for a widely-anticipated horse race.

Down Memory Lane has racked up a succession of wins and there could be more to come from the five-year-old when he lines up at Leopardstown Racecourse. There was an impressive triumph at Down Royal in November, with the horse fending off eighteen rivals, with the Gordon Elliott-trained charge able to secure a three length victory on that occasion.

Willie Mullins has Daddy Long Legs and the four-year-old was able to score at Thurles at the end of November, with the horse claiming a thirteen-length win as the 11/8 favourite and there could be more to come from a runner who is slightly shorter in the betting than Firefox, with the latter another Elliott horse who has to have solid each-way claims.

It’s For Me runs for Mullins and the five-year-old was able to score against a big field of runners at Punchestown Racecourse, with the horse obliging as the 8/13 favourite when winning a Maiden Hurdle in the middle of November. Ballyburn comes from the same stable and was able to finish runner-up at Fairyhouse when second to Firefox.

Farren Glory was able to record back to back victories, with the six-year-old landing a win at Clonmel in early November before obliging in a more competitive tussle at Fairyhouse in early December. Ile Atlantique and Mirazur West are yet more horses from the Mullins stable and we’re expecting this trainer to have a strong hand for the race.
