2023 Fred Winter Juvenile Handicap Hurdle Betting Odds at Cheltenham racecourse

Tuesday, 14 March 2023

The 2023 Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle is run over two miles and half a furlong, with each-way punters looking for price boosts after the excitement of the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, Arkle Chase and Champion Hurdle. Favourite-backers will be considering whether to aim to secure a return from backing Tekao and the Mullins-trained horse has plenty to recommend him.

However, this looks set to be a Cheltenham Festival betting race where big-priced horses are going to make the frame, with customers looking down the weights order and aiming to back a horse to give them a big run for their money at a big price. There is lots of each-way value and it might be worth looking at the betting outsiders for Race 6.

2023 Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle Betting Tips

Tekao is the betting favourite to win the 2023 Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle, with the four-year-old arguably trading at a shorter price by virtue of being trained by Willie Mullins. After all, the horse has only won one of his previous three races, with the runner finishing third in the Donohue Marquees Spring Juvenile Hurdle although he outran his odds at 16/1.

Previously to this, the same runner triumphed in a Maiden Hurdle and there is a market confidence that the horse can finish in the frame. However, four-year-olds are largely unproven and perhaps Nusret could the horse to back, with the Joseph O’Brien-trained charge having won the Coral Adonis Juvenile Hurdle at Kempton Park.

There could be more to come from a runner who has a wealth of experience for a horse so young, although Byker also comes highly commended. There was a win in the Cheltenham Trials Day At Naas February 11th Maiden Hurdle before finishing third in a Novice Hurdle at the same course at Naas Racecourse.

Sir Allen is bidding for a third consecutive victory and the Andrew Slattery-trained runner claimed a Novice Hurdle win and that included beating Byker into third place, with the same horse winning a Maiden Hurdle at Punchestown Racecourse. Customers should wait for the weights to be announced and look for extra places on their each-way bets.

2022 Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle Tips

Gaelic Warrior looks to be the leading contender when it comes to the 2022 Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle betting odds, with the horse having recently been switched to the Willie Mullins yard and it appears as though this young runner could be the horse to beat.

When it comes to Cheltenham juvenile handicap betting tips, it is worth bearing in mind that there isn’t a great deal of racing form to go on. This four-year-old has had three outings at Auteil and much depends on the noises coming from connections before deciding whether to place a Cheltenham bet.

Champion Green Could Be Best Each-Way Bet

There are some better Cheltenham betting tips than the market leader and Champion Green could be a cracking each-way selection. This is a four-year-old who has much more robust form and that includes a victory in the Naas Racecourse Maiden Hurdle over one mile and seven furlongs.

The Joseph O’Brien-trained horse was sent off as the 4/6 betting favourite on that occasion and claimed a three length win after making all the running. There appears to be more to come from a horse who was able to keep the opposition at bay throughout that contest and there’s plenty of other experience to speak of.

The horse finished second in the Eden Capital 3-Y-O Maiden Hurdle over two miles on heavy ground and that Boxing Day performance was pretty fair, while the fact that Mark Walsh will be on the JP McManus horse is a big plus.

The Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle is also known as the Fred Winter and this race was inaugurated in 2005, with this taking place over a distance of two miles and this handicap encounter takes place on the Wednesday of the Cheltenham Festival.

Paul Nicholls has been the most successful trainer for this race and could be worth following, with the Englishman obliging with Sanctuaire, Qualando and Diego du Charmil, although Gordon Elliott has also scored a couple of winners.

The Irish trainer claimed the spoils with Flaxen Flare and Veneer of Charm, with the latest runners and riders assembling for this Juvenile Handicap Hurdle and it’s often the case that any horse is trading at single figure odds.

Wolf Prince is the market leader at the time of writing, with the four-year-old having run seven times since 19 August and it appears as though the Gavin Cromwell-trained horse could well be in the frame.

We most recently saw the horse winning at Fairyhouse when obliging as the odds-on favourite, with the charge acting well on soft ground and we’re expecting something similar when March comes around.

Mick Pastor is another horse that we’re expecting to line up in the Juvenile Handicap Hurdle, with Paul Nicholls planning on another raid in this race and the four-year-old could be the fourth winner of the race for this trainer.

The horse was trading as the 6/4 favourite for a run at Ludlow in a Juvenile Hurdle and won fairly comfortably, with Barry Geraghty likely to be on board and the Irish jockey is among the best in the business.

Sir Psycho also offers a viable alternative and runs for that successful trainer that is Paul Nicholls, with the latest victory being an enormous win at Exeter on New Year’s Day which really laid down a marker.
