40/1 Shot Ebaziyan wins Supreme Novices' Hurdle 13/03/07



Ebaziyan, returned at 40/1, became the joint second-highest priced winner ever of the Anglo Irish Bank Supreme Novices’ Hurdle when prevailing by three lengths in the opening race of The Festival 2007. The 1994 victor Arctic Kinsman (50/1) was the biggest outsider while the 1986 winner River Ceiriog was also returned at 40/1.

The winner, having only his third outing over hurdles, is owned by Dublin-based hotelier and businessman Peter Garvey, trained by Willie Mullins and ridden by Davy Condon, enjoying his first-ever Festival success on only his third ride at the event. Mullins was recording his 10th Festival success and his second victory in this race, following Tourist Attraction in 1995.

Mullins said: “I am delighted. To be honest, I’d have been delighted if he’d finished in the first six to eight and have counted it as a win if he’d finished in the first three.

“I had intended to run him last year, but he broke a pelvis. He ran well first time although he got beat, and then won at Thurles.

“We thought he might have more than he has showed so far so that is why we thought he was worth taking a chance with today.

“Davy has given him a great ride. He got caught up in the melee at the start and then did well to follow Amaretto Rose through. I thought he jumped well, although Davy said he wasn’t foot perfect at all of them.

“Peter Garvey has been a tremendous owner. We will have to think about it, but he could go to Punchestown now.”

The winning rider added: “Great - I can't believe it. I couldn't believe how well he was going. Coming here today, we didn't have much confidence, but he has done it really.

“It's brilliant. I was too far back all together. I was happy to see as we passed the bend that Mick (Fitzgerald) was right there, so I thought I can't be doing too bad, I'll follow him through, and it all worked out in the end. It's a brilliant buzz. I thought I had got there a bit too soon because he doesn't do much in front, but luckily he battled really well."

Placed horses bow to Ebaziyan

Despite defeat at the hands of 40/1 outsider Ebaziyan in the opening race at the 2007 Cheltenham Festival, connections of the placed horses had no complaints.

John Hales, owner of 15/2 runner-up Granit Jack, said: “It was a brilliant performance by the winner and we were beaten by a better horse on the day. But my horse is a chaser, he hasn’t been bought for hurdling.

“Ruby said he jumped badly, but what he meant was he jumped big because all the horse knows from his time in France is jumping fences.”

Granit Jack suffered from stomach ulcers earlier this season, and Hales said: “When we bought him in France, we had no reason to scope him because he was in such wonderful condition. He was eating up and there was no reason to suspect he had ulcers.

“I sent him to Bristol [to the equine hospital] expecting him to need a soft-palate operation, but I was told he was way above the average horse in terms of his engine and oxygen intake. They couldn’t find anything wrong with him, other than the ulcers that were in an area of his stomach that caused him distress in a race.”

Asked about future options for the grey, Hales said he would need to speak to trainer Paul Nicholls, and he added: “If he runs at Aintree or Punchestown I won’t be able to see him because I’m in Barbados for the Cricket World Cup - I’ll have to get to the nearest bookmaker.”

Johnny Weatherby, head of the 120-strong Weatherbys Racing Club and Weatherbys, racing’s secretariat, said of their mare, third-placed Amaretto Rose, the hot 2/1 favourite: “Mick [Fitzgerald] said she just got a bit hampered coming down the hill after the second-last which just stopped her rhythm and put her back a bit. She battled on up the hill and he said she would have been closer but for that incident.

“We’re all delighted and not deflated. Many owners strive all their lives to have a runner at Cheltenham, let alone a fancied one. We’ve achieved our objectives and she’s run a blinder.”

Paul Webber, trainer of fourth-placed De Soto, said: “He stayed on so the two-and-a-half miler at Aintree might suit him now. The ground was a bit tacky for him today. He loves this place, but he didn’t quite get the break after the false start. The first time he had a lovely position, but was facing the other way on the second start - but I’m pleased he’s run a super race.”

1. The Anglo Irish Bank Supreme Novices’ Hurdle was known as the Gloucestershire Hurdle until 1974. Capel Cure Sharp backed the contest for the first time in 2000 and the company, which became Gerrard Wealth Management, supported the race until 2003. Racecourse caterers Letheby & Christopher became the sixth sponsor since the initial backer Lloyds Bank in 1974 when supporting the contest in 2004 and 2005. Anglo Irish Bank sponsors the race for the second time in 2007.

2. The Anglo Irish Bank Supreme Novices’ Hurdle is the only race at The Festival to have been divided. From 1946-1971 when known as the Gloucestershire Novices’ Hurdle, it divided on no less than 25 occasions. In 1963 and 1946 there were even three divisions.

3. The oldest horse to have won was 12-year-old Beau Caprice in 1966 (Div One). Three eight-year-olds have also been successful; Like-A-Butterfly in 2002, Sondrio in 1989 and Boys Hurrah in 1956 (Div One).

4. The 1993 winner, Montelado, holds a unique position in the history of The Festival at Cheltenham. He is the only horse to have won consecutive Festival races, landing the Weatherbys Champion Bumper in 1992, the last race of that year’s meeting, and returning to win the Anglo Irish Bank Supreme Novices’ Hurdle in 1993, the first race12 months later.

5. The Anglo Irish Bank Supreme Novices’ Hurdle has thrown up one winner of the totesport Cheltenham Gold Cup and three Smurfit Kappa Champion Hurdle heroes. L'Escargot won in 1968, before consecutive Gold Cup triumphs in 1970 and 1971. Bula scored in 1970, before Champion Hurdle victories in 1971 and 1972, while the 2002 Smurfit Kappa Champion Hurdle winner Hors La Loi III took the race in 1999, and Brave Inca took the Champion Hurdle last year having landed the novice event in 2004.

6. The race has been won by Irish-trained raiders on no less than 35 occasions, and by the French once. Of the 16 divisions from 1952-59, Vincent O'Brien won 10. Ireland also kept a stranglehold on the race for seven years from 1977-83 and have won three of the last five runnings.

7. The smallest field was in 1950, with nine runners in Division 1, and the largest, 30 runners, for both Harry Hastings' win in 1985 and French Ballerina in 1998. The maximum field allowed is now 24.

8. Since the race ceased to be divided, big-name jockeys have found the Anglo Irish Bank Supreme Novices’ Hurdle difficult to win. Tony McCoy, successful on Hors La Loi III in 1999, is the only one of the last four champion jockeys to have scored in this particular contest, and only Charlie Swan (1993 and 2002), Tommy Carmody (1980 and 1983) and Niall Madden (1978 and 1981) have been successful twice.

9. The longest-priced winner was Arctic Kinsman at 50/1 in 1994. The shortest-priced winners at 4/9 were Tsaoko in 1950 and Flyingbolt in 1964. Favourites have been successful eight times in the 34 runnings since 1972, with three of the last five winning.

10. The fastest time for the winning horse was achieved by Montelado in 1993 at 3 mins 50.6 secs. French Ballerina came close to that record in 1998 when her time was 3 mins 50.9 secs.


Anglo Irish Bank Supreme Novices' Hurdle - Analysis

The Grade One £120,000 Anglo Irish Bank Supreme Novices’ Hurdle has attracted a bumper 131-strong entry, the highest since 2002 and 18 more than in 2006, including a record 53 from Ireland.

Moon Over Miami

Moon Over Miami

The Charlie Mann-trained My Turn Now fell at the last when making headway in that Grade One contest and had won all his previous four starts over hurdles. Mann has also entered Cortinas and Moon Over Miami who was successful over two miles at Cheltenham in the Grade Two Anglo Irish Private Banking Novices’ Hurdle in November.

The latter was subsequently held in second by the Ian Williams-trained Tagula Blue in the Grade Two Mitie Kennel Gate Novices’ Hurdle at Ascot in December.

Philip Hobbs has engaged dual winner Liberate, Manhattan Boy, Snow Patrol, 200,000gns purchase Warsaw Pact, Odal d’Airy and Huntingdon winner French Saulaie.
