The meeting always provides glimpses of future stars and it was no different in the latest renewal of the Sky Bet Supreme Trial Novices’ Hurdle. The runners were well bunched throughout the race with no certain winner appearing. Eventual Cheltenham Festival winner, Summerville Boy took the lead as they climbed the Cheltenham Hill, drawing clear of the rest of the field by 3 lengths but Slate house, under Harry Cobden, fought back to win the race by 3/4 of a length.
