    Default HERALD CHAMPION NOVICE HURDLE TRENDS 2014

    The Herald Champion Novice Hurdle takes place on Tuesday 29th April, the first day of the 2014 Punchestown Festival. It is a grade 1 run over 2 miles for novice hurdlers and the Royal Bond & Supreme Novices’ Hurdle have proven the best guides in recent years.





    Below we take a look at the trends for the past 10 years:





    Age (Win-Place-Runners)
    5yo: 5-9-35
    6yo: 3-5-29
    7yo: 1-2-13
    8yo: 1-0-5
    No strong trends on ages of the winners.

    Gender
    Mares (0-0-3) have a poor record, with all 3 female runners since 2004 failing to make the frame. Since 2000 the 6 female runners have finished last, second last or pulled up.

    Breeding
    Irish bred: 8-10-56
    German bred: 2-0-6
    French bred: 0-3-6
    NZ bred: 0-1-1
    American bred: 0-1-3
    British bred: 0-1-9
    Italian bred: 0-0-1
    8 of 10 winners were Irish bred, though they have accounted for 68.3% of total runners in past 10 years.
    German & French bred horses have done well, gained 2 wins and 3 places from a combined 12 runners (14.6% of total runners)

    Recent/Past Form
    10 of 10 winners finished in first 3 last time (5 won)
    9 of 10 winners finished in first 3 in a grade 1 or 2 on last hurdles start
    8 of 10 winners posted career high RPR last time (2 exceptions did so on penultimate start)
    10 of 10 winners had run 2 to 6 times since September
    10 of 10 winners had won 1 to 5 times over hurdles (8 had won 2+)
    8 of 10 winners had won a graded hurdle (1 exception 2nd in grade 2 & other 3rd in grade 1)
    5 of 10 winners had won a grade 1
    7 of 10 winners made their debut in a bumper (2 of 3 horses to have run on the flat had won a listed or group race)

    Trainers
    Noel Meade (3-0-11) has won 4 of the last 12 runnings of this race.
    Willie Mullins (2-4-10) trained the 1-2 in 2009 & 2010 but his 3 runners in 2012 were all unplaced and last year he accounted for the unplaced favourite.
    Eddie O’Grady (2-0-2) has seen all 4 of his runners since 2001 all win.
    Tony Martin (0-1-1) saddled the runner-up last year.
    British trained runners (0-3-9) have a poor record in this race, failing to win with any of their 9 representatives and gaining just 3 places. They have been responsible for 2 favourites in past 10 years.

    Price
    8 of 10 winners came from the first 2 in the betting
    All 10 winners were priced 8/1 or below & came from the first 4 in the betting.
    Favourites (5-3-10) have won 6 of the last 10 giving a level stakes profit of 2.92.



    Summary:


    Based on the trends from the past 10 years you are looking for a horse:


    - Irish or German bred
