2024 Anniversary Juvenile Hurdle Betting Odds at Aintree racecourse

Thursday, 11 April 2024

Sir Gino has been flawless during his short career to date, with the four-year-old looking like the one to beat when it comes to the Anniversary 4-Y-O Juvenile Hurdle. Nicky Henderson’s runner is highly talented and has the highest overall rating out of any horse, with Nico de Boinville on board a charge who is now trading at odds-on.

Kalif Du Berlais also has an impeccable record coming into this encounter and Paul Nicholls saddles a runner who is second favourite to win, while Kargese could be a lively runner for Willie Mullins. The first three in the betting are trading a good deal shorter than the other horses in the race.

2024 Anniversary 4-Y-O Juvenile Hurdle Tips

Sir Gino disappointed antepost Cheltenham Festival backers when failing to turn up for the Triumph Hurdle although it appears that he’ll take his chance when it comes to the Anniversary 4-Y-O Juvenile Hurdle. There has already been a couple of victories this season, with the latest win coming at Cheltenham at the end of January.

This was a ten-length success when fending off Burdett Road, with the runner winning a Triumph Hurdle Trial race, with this coming after a success at Kempton Park. The odds-on favourite was able to triumph over two miles on that occasion, although there are plenty of viable contenders for this encounter.

Kalif Du Berlais has enjoyed three successive victories and Paul Nicholls trains this runner who was last seen triumphing at Kempton Park when beating four other rivals. This came after a nice victory at the same track where Roaring Legend was beaten into second by a sizeable distance.

Kargese has finished in the first two in all four appearances to date, with Willie Mullins training a runner who finished second to Majborough at the Cheltenham Festival. There was a second placed finish in the JCB Triumph Hurdle after the horse was able to secure the spoils when running well at Leopardstown at the Dublin Racing Festival.

2023 Anniversary Juvenile Hurdle Tips

Some of the best four-year-olds in the land will be lining up in the Anniversary 4-Y-O Juvenile Hurdle, with Willie Mullins hoping that Zenta can produce a similar type of performance to the JCB Triumph Hurdle where the horse finished in a solid third position. It was no disgrace to lose to favourite Lossiemouth and there was only two and half lengths between the runners.

Zenta was previously an easy winner in a Juvenile Hurdle at Fairyhouse and that Cheltenham form has to be respected, although there are no guarantees after such a tough race at the Festival. Bo Zenith has scored back to back successes for trainer Gary Moore and the latest of these came at Stratford where the odds-on favourite won by a sizeable distance.

Nusret runs for Joseph O’Brien and the four-year-old was also third to Lossiemouth at Leopardstown Racecourse on Boxing Day, although the margin of victory was a good deal more sizeable. There were signs of improvement at Kempton Park when the runner claimed a victory in the Coral Adonis Juvenile Hurdle and perhaps there’s some each-way value.

Scriptwriter runs for lesser-known trainer Milton Harris and it all depends whether we can excuse the horse’s under-par performance in the same race at Nusret, with the same horse having previously finished second in a Triumph Hurdle trial and the horse also won at Cheltenham in November which means he’s one for the shortlist.
