About the Baring Bingham Novices' Hurdle
The Baring Bingham Novices’ Hurdle, also known as the Neptune Investment Management Novices’ Hurdle, is the premier 2 mile 4 furlong novices hurdle in the United Kingdom. The race is open to 4-year-old and above novice hurdlers, who are required to jump 10 hurdles on the way to the finishing post.

Betting on the Baring Bingham Novices’ Hurdle
The Neptune Investment Management Novices Hurdle is one of the toughest Grade 1 races at the Cheltenham Festival to call. The young, inexperienced but talented field is enough to make a mockery of betting markets and pundits predictions.
Generally horses that are rated 150 or higher with strong recent form are going to be worth a closer look, although these will typically be at the top of the markets anyway. One strategy is to look out rapidly improving horses rather than the obvious candidates, as these have the potential to storm to victory at better odds than you’ll find on the top two to three in the betting.
