Tolworth Hurdle Trends

This Saturday’s Unibet Tolworth Novices’ Hurdle and is staged at Sandown Park racecourse and is often a good guide ahead of the Cheltenham Festival in March.

In recent years the contest has been a good race for the favourite with 8 of the last 13 market leaders being placed, with five being successful, while winners often go onto contest a race at that season’s Cheltenham Festival – with Noland (2006) and the 2018 winner – Summerville Boy - going onto win the Supreme Novices Hurdle, while the 2016 winner, Yorkhill, went onto land the Neptune Investment Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival later that season.

Trainer Colin Tizzard has won three of the last five runnings, while Nicky Henderson has four successes since 2011 and Paul Nicholls won the race three years in a row between 2006 and 2008.

12 months ago we saw the Harry Fry win the race for the first time when their 5 year-old Metier won the race.

Here at GEEGEEZ we give you all the key stats ahead of the 2022 renewal, this year staged on Saturday January 8th.
