The Slaney Novice Hurdle is a Grade One National Hunt hurdle race in Ireland. It is run in January at Naas Racecourse, over a distance of 2 miles and 4 furlongs. The race is often contested by horses who go on to compete at the Cheltenham Festival, such as the 1978 winner, Golden Cygnet, who went on to win the Supreme Novices' Hurdle and 2009 winner, Mikael d'Haguenet, who went on to win the Ballymore Properties Novices' Hurdle.

The race was run over 19 furlongs until 1995. It was awarded Grade 3 status in 1993, raised to Grade 2 in 2005 and then to Grade 1 in 2015.[1] The race has been run as the Lawlor's Hotel Novice Hurdle since 2015.
