2023 Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle Betting Odds at Cheltenham racecourse

Friday, 17 March 2023

This hurdle race is open to horses aged four or older, with the race having been in operation since 2009. We’ve seen Willie Mullins, Gordon Elliott and Paul Nicholls all achieve success in this race, with Langer Dan and Chemical Energy proving to be the market leaders for the 2022 renewal.

Langer Dan is trained by Dan Skelton and the English handler is often skilled at landing the spoils when it comes to the handicap races. The horse finished second in the same race twelve months previously and it will be interesting to see what condition the horse appears in here.

Langer Dan is a six-year-old who hasn’t been seen at a racecourse this season and that adds an element of doubt as to how he will perform. On the flip side, the horse won the 2021 Imperial Cup at Sandown Park before coming narrowly close to securing a big million double in the Martin Pipe and Skelton appears focused on trying to make this happen in 2022.

This is only a little horse who was able to win the Imperial Cup by four and a half lengths, with the runner being desperately unlucky to run into a horse like Galopin Des Champs considering that the latter has gone from strength to strength during the 2021-22 National Hunt season.

Chemical Energy runs for Gordon Elliott and there is plenty to recommend a horse that was last seen at a racecourse when claiming a Fairyhouse victory in a Novices Hurdle over the festive season. That was over two miles and four furlongs, with the horse being a potentially strong each-way bet to land the spoils here.

Saint Felicien is another interesting contender and it will be good to get enhanced place terms when it comes to the Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle. This is a five-year-old who has no Cheltenham experience, although the horse could only finish second to Darasso in the BetVictor Limestone Lad Hurdle.


If you haven’t backed any winners at the Cheltenham Festival 2020 at this point, then you only have one chance left and that comes in the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle.

This is the final race of the 2020 meeting, with the race having been in operation since 2009, with Andytown winning the first ever heat, while recent winners have been Champagne Classic, Blow By Blow and Early Doors.

The hurdle race takes place over two miles and four furlongs, with Willie Mullins proving the most successful trainer thus far thanks to saddling Sir Des Champs, Don Poli and Killultagh Vic over the years.

Trainer Gavin Cromwell had a winner for JP McManus last year and perhaps it will be the same story this time around, with Ilikedwayurthinkin likely to trade among the favourites and the six-year-old put on an impressive showing at Leopardstown over Christmas.

The horse finished fifth on soft ground against a decent field of horses, with Barry Geraghty likely to be on board and the big question is to how the runner is going to adapt to Cheltenham considering he has never run there before.

Column Of Fire runs for Gordon Elliott, with the six-year-old having enjoyed a successful season and the latest performance saw the horse finish third out of a field of twenty-eight horses.

Jack Kennedy was on board the 5/1 favourite at the time, with Davy Russell having previously won at even money when landing a Maiden Hurdle victory over two miles and four furlongs at Punchestown.

There are other horses that could be in contention, with The Bosses Oscar another Gordon Elliott charge who is five-years-old and the horse hasn’t been out of the top two this season.

A victory at Leopardstown during the Christmas break was a highlight and that Maiden Hurdle win was followed by a second-placed finish in a Novice Hurdle at Thurles.
