2023 Cleeve Hurdle Betting Odds at Cheltenham racecourse

Saturday, 28 January 2023

Can Paisley Park land yet another Cheltenham victory? Aidan Coleman steered the eleven-year-old to victory in the Ladbrokes Long Walk Hurdle and the horse racing betting sites think that the popular runner is the most likely winner when it comes to the Cleeve Hurdle, although there are some smart horses that are also going to be lining up.

Dashel Drasher has recorded a string of strong performances this season and has to be respected based on current form. Gelino Bello will also be bidding to make a strong showing off less weight, with the seven-year-old having fallen last time out after landing a place in the winners’ enclosure on two successive occasions.

2023 Cleeve Hurdle Betting Tips

Paisley Park continues to line up and win in esteemed company, with the eleven-year-old going off as the short-priced favourite to win the 2023 Cleeve Hurdle. The horse put together a solid performance in the Long Walk Hurdle at Kempton Park on Boxing Day, with the horse obliging at 9/2 and it was a typically strong run where the runner came from a long way back to land the spoils.

Beating Goshen and Champ was no mean feat and there’s a strong case for backing Paisley Park to record a win, with Dashel Drasher having strung together some good performances this season. The Jeremy Scott-trained runner was able to run impressively in the Relkeel Hurdle when finishing second behind Marie’s Rock and might benefit from a longer trip.

Gelino Bello was enjoying a consecutive run of four victories before falling last time out at Kempton Park on Boxing Day. The seven-year-old appeared to be travelling well in the Kauto Star Novices’ Chase although connections have decided to revert to hurdling and it’s hardly a surprise considering the horse was looking smart when it came to that department.

The horse won the Sefton Novices’ Hurdle and Paul Nicholls will hope that the runner can rediscover a similar level at Cheltenham. Like Paisley Park, Botox Has goes off the top weight and was fairly underwhelming when finishing seventh in the Relkeel Hurdle. However, Gary Moore’s runner previously scooped a victory in the Betfair Exchange Stayers' Handicap Hurdle.
