2024 Lawlors Of Naas Novice Hurdle Betting Odds at Naas racecourse

Friday, 12 January 2024

There are any number of potential winners when it comes to the Lawlor's Of Naas Novice Hurdle, with this Grade 1 encounter attracting some star names. Firefox has claimed a victory in his past four outings and the six-year-old will be looking to follow up recent victories at Down Royal and Fairyhouse with another success here.

Ile Atlantique runs for Willie Mullins and could also be competing for favoritism, with the horse having impressed on his last outing when winning at Gowran Park. This nineteen-length triumph came after a lengthy break and there could also be a strong showing from Chapeau De Soleil who runs in the familiar Rich Ricci colours.

2024 Lawlor's Of Naas Novice Hurdle Tips

It’s typical to see Gordon Elliott and Willie Mullins-trained runners heading the betting market for the Lawlor's Of Naas Novice Hurdle. Firefox is regarded as the strongest competitor and the six-year-old racked up a couple of victories already this season. Indeed, he has now achieved four straight wins and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see number five here.

The latest win came in early December when the horse enjoyed a two and a half length win over Ballyburn in a Maiden Hurdle race, with Ile Atlantique next in the betting and this horse was able to triumph last time out when winning at Gowran Park by a sizeable margin to announce his credentials.

Chapeau De Soleil was able to score in a previous outing and this is another Willie Mullins-trained horse who has serious credentials, with plenty to like about the way in which the horse obliged at Clonmel Racecourse by nine lengths over two miles and three furlongs. Croke Park also comes in as a previous winner of two races this season.

Gordon Elliott saw his charge beat nine other runners at Clonmel before obliging at Navan in November and there is also the unbeaten Mystical Power who enjoyed back to back wins in the JP McManus green and gold colours, with the five-year-old bidding for a consecutive hat-trick when it comes to a return to the track.
