2023 Liverpool Hurdle Betting Odds at Aintree racecourse

Saturday, 15 April 2023

The Liverpool Hurdle is one of several Grade One races that takes place at Aintree Racecourse during the three-day Grand National meeting, with this being a long distance hurdle race that features many of the runners who lined up in various races at the 2023 Cheltenham Festival.

Marie’s Rock ran a poor race in the Mares Hurdle when losing to Honeysuckle and will now get the allowance when competing over the longer distance, while Gordon Elliott’s Teahupoo will also get a chance to improve on a showing in the Stayers’ Hurdle, with Flooring Porter and Champ also set to run.

Liverpool Hurdle 2023 Betting Tips

Marie’s Rock was disappointing when finishing well down the order of the mares’ race on Day 1 of the Cheltenham Festival, although perhaps the horse was running in the wrong race. She might find a distance over three miles more to her liking, with the horse having previously won the Relkeel Hurdle at Prestbury Park at odds of 11/2.

However, Teahupoo is possibly the horse to side with and there was lots to like about a narrow third placed in the Stayers’ Hurdle, with the six-year-old having been somewhat unfortunate not to beat eventual winner Sire Du Berlais considering the controversial start of that particular race.

Dashel Drasher was sent off at 40/1 in that race before landing a runner-up spot and there could be more to come from Jeremy Scott’s charge and might have won without making a mistake five hurdles out. The ten-year-old might benefit from the flatter Aintree track and there could be lots of other interesting contenders.

Champ might be set for a final hurrah in this Liverpool Hurdle race and the JP McManus-owned runner was able to win the Coral Long Distance Hurdle on 25 November 2022, with the eleven-year-old having enjoyed a decorated career which saw the horse finish third in the Liverpool Hurdle last year behind none other than Sire Du Berlais.
