2024 William Hill Handicap Hurdle Betting Odds at Aintree racecourse

Friday, 12 April 2024

There will be testing ground conditions when it comes to the William Hill Handicap Hurdle, with twenty-two runners in the line up for an encounter over two miles and four furlongs. Go Dante has won twice this season and the eight-year-old is respected by the bookies who also have Jango Baie as one of their favourites.

Kateira has put in some solid showings this season and could be set to hit the frame, while Making Headway has landed two victories during the current campaign. We recommend looking out for extra places with the bookies as this is definitely a race which is best for each-way betting.

2024 William Hill Handicap Hurdle Tips

There will be twenty-two runners battling it out in the William Hill Handicap Hurdle and virtually every horse is available at a double figure price. Olly Murphy trains Go Dante and we’ve seen this charge land two victories already this term. The latest of these came at Sandown in February where Faivoir was beaten by a nose.

That Imperial Cup success was achieved over two miles on soft ground and it will be interesting if Go Dante can fare well over a longer trip. He was third out of twenty-one runners in the Betfair Hurdle at Newbury, with the horse finishing six lengths behind Iberico Lord on heavy ground.

Jango Baie hasn’t been out of the first two this season and has to be considered for the shortlist here. There was a second-placed finish at Kelso in the Premier Novices’ Hurdle and the horse returns to an Aintree track where he was able to achieve a success when winning a Novices’ Hurdle back in December.

Kateira could go well for Dan Skelton and there’s also Making Headway who has a couple of victories on the board this term. Finishing fourth in the Imperial Cup was a solid outcome and that came after a win at Newbury when fending off twelve other competitors. However, the horse has plenty to find after finishing a long way behind Jango Baie at Aintree.
