The first race of the 2022 Cheltenham festival sees the Grade One Supreme Novices' Hurdle and we are siding with the superstar Constitution Hill for Nicky Henderson.
The gelding looks to be a serious animal for Nicky Henderson and owner Michael Buckley, with the £120,000 purchase making an extremely taking rules debut at Sandown in December.
The five year old had been seen once in a point to point before his rules debut, when finishing a head second in what might turn out to be a smart P2P.
Heading to Sandown in a Novices' Hurdle, he cruised next to the favourite Might I for Harry Fry, who is a good horse in his own right, and having jumped the last impeccably he went on to take the event by 14 lengths.
This saw Constitution Hill go from a 40/1 outsider for this race to a general 4/1 second favourite.
Seen once more since then he managed to land Grade One glory in the Tolworth Hurdle winning just as impressively as his previous, pulling away from a decent field to win by 12 lengths.
He looks a freak of a horse and although needing to improve again, he looks the one to beat.
