2022 Pertemps Final Tips

When it comes to Cheltenham Festival betting odds, you can sometimes back a big priced winner when it comes to the Pertemps Final. There are often lots of runners lining up to compete in this race at the meeting, with many leading horse racing bookies offering extra places when it comes to each-way betting on the big race.

The picture is always a little murky when it comes to this handicap race considering that there are lots of horses entered although much depends on the weights allotted to each runner. There are likely to be some leading contenders in the form of Dunboyne and Sporting John, with the former having failed to win any of his past four outings.

Are Dunboyne and Sporting John Leading Pertemps Final Contenders?

Dunboyne is a seven-year-old who has a point to prove, although Gordon Elliott will retain his faith in a runner who ran well in the Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle qualifier when finishing in fifth place at betting odds of 18/1. Jack Kennedy is likely to be on board a runner who underwhelmed in his last outing at Leopardstown.

Sporting John looks like a better Cheltenham bet considering that the JP McManus-owned horse has shown plenty of winning form during the 2021-22 National Hunt season. Most recently, he landed the victory in the Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle qualifier at Warwick, with this triumph occurring in mid January.

Previously to this, the horse ran at Cheltenham on 10 December and was sent off as the 5/4 favourite to win a handicap hurdle only to finish in fourth. Indeed, he fell in the Brown Advisory Novices' Chase at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival, with the horse showing some form when winning the Paddy Power Games Handicap Hurdle on 13 November.

Can Sire Du Berlais Land a Third Pertemps Final Victory?

Sire Du Berlais has won two Pertemps Final races at the Cheltenham Festival and it would be quite a story if the Gordon Elliott-trained charge was able to secure a hat-trick. There could be life in the ten-year-old and he wasn’t too far behind Sporting John in the Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle at Warwick.

We know that the veteran horse is able to run well at Cheltenham and Mark Walsh gave the horse a tremendous spin in the Paddy Power Stayers’ Hurdle when finishing second behind Flooring Porter twelve months ago.

The second race on Day Three of the 2020 Cheltenham Festival is the Pertemps Network Final, with this race having formed part of the meeting since 1974 and it’s one of the furthest races with it spanning over three miles.

Phoenix Way is among the favourites to land the spoils, with the Harry Fry-trained charge having recently returned to the track after an enormous break and he was able to win at Huntingdon.

The seven-year-old is owned by JP McManus, with the horse obliging over three miles and a furlong on soft ground which bodes well for Cheltenham considering that the ground is likely to be on the soft side come March.

The Storyteller is a more experienced runner and the horse is trained by Gordon Elliott who has landed victory in the Pertemps over the past couple of years. He saddled Delta Work to a win in 2018 before doing the same with Sire Du Berlais and his latest hope has to stand a chance.

The horse ran in the Ryanair Chase a year ago and was pulled up although he scored a victory at Clonmel in December before a creditable performance at Leopardstown which was a qualifier for this race.

Last year’s winner Sire Du Berlais could be in the race bidding for a double and it’s often the case that we get horses for courses, with the horse having enjoyed a successful prep run for the Festival when finishing fourth in a race at Warwick and outrunning his odds of 16/1.

Tout Est Permis could be an interesting runner and the Noel Meade-trained charge recently finished in the frame in a Grade B race in Ireland, while Skandiburg and Ronald Pump other horses to watch.
