2024 Pertemps Network Final Betting Odds at Cheltenham racecourse

Thursday, 14 March 2024

Shoot First might be able to give trainer C Byrnes a rare Cheltenham Festival win, with the seven-year-old having demonstrated his ability to run well at the same course. On 22 October, the horse was able to beat a field of fifteen horses to land a victory by two lengths, although much depends on the weight allowances that are handed out.

The rest of the favourite’s form is more modest, with Perceval Legallois and Thanksforthehelp running in the JP McManus silks and the former was a winner last time out. However, it’s the latter who is carrying less weight and might rate as a better each-way bet, while there are a queue of Gordon Elliott-trained runners also set to run.

2023 Pertemps Network Final Handicap Hurdle Betting Tips

The Pertemps Network Final Handicap Hurdle is always a difficult race to predict and we know that bigger-priced horses are often able to make the frame. Therefore we recommend casting the net far and wide when it comes to finding a winner, with Charles Byrnes having scored with Shoot First at the Cheltenham November meeting which is a good marker.

Perceval Legallois was an impressive winner at the Dublin Racing Festival when winning a handicap hurdle at Leopardstown, with the six-year-old not finding a top weight too much of an obstacle. Gavin Cromwell will hope for another strong run after this victory by over three lengths, with the horse having finished fourth in a big field at Leopardstown in a previous race.

On that day, we saw Maxxum claim a victory and we’re surprised that the six-year-old is trading at a bigger price for a win in this encounter. Gordon Elliott’s runner will have to carry 11-10 and claimed two victories in his past three races, although the horse fell flat when losing as the 7/4 favourite in the race won by Perceval Legallois.

Thanksforthehelp is trained by David Pipe and looks favourably handicapped, with a victory in the Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle marking him out for a potential success and that was achieved by over six lengths. That came recently at Chepstow Racecourse and The Bosses Oscar is an Elliott-trained runner who also has the credentials to go well.


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.
