Triumph Hurdle Betting Odds Comparison - Cheltenham

18/03/2022 13:30:00

The 2021 JCB Triumph Hurdle is always the opening race on Day Four of the Cheltenham Festival, with some of the leading four-year-olds competing from both sides of the Irish Sea in a bid to announce themselves in the UK and Irish horse racing world.

This is a Grade 1 encounter over two miles and one furlong, with the leading trainers putting out relatively untested horses, although many of them go on to become big contenders for races such as the Champion Hurdle, Stayers’ Hurdle and sometimes even some of the big chases at the Festival.

Zanahiyr Looks the One to Beat in Triumph

Zanahiyr has not put a foot wrong in his career to date and has scored three consecutive victories, with Gordon Elliott only recently admitting the horse into his stable and he’s already looking like a leading contender, with triumphs at Ballinrobe, Fairyhouse and Leopardstown putting the runner on the map.

The majority of bookies have around 5/2 that the four-year-old continues his upward trajectory by scoring a victory on Day Four of the 2021 Cheltenham Festival and he certainly appears to be the standout name on the racecard, although other punters might consider that price a touch short based on his modest achievements to date.

Gordon Elliott Has Lots of Triumph Hurdle Contenders

Elliott certainly has the JCB Triumph Hurdle as one of his best possible chances of securing a victory at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival, with Quilixios another unbeaten horse who has scored some very impressive victories, winning over thirteen lengths at Punchestown before going on to land a twenty-length success at Down Royal.

On both occasions the horse was sent off as the overwhelming favourite and perhaps a much sterner test awaits him for this encounter, while Duffle Coat is another Elliott horse that commands respect and could possibly represent the best value of all.

This horse arguably has the best form of all going into the race after winning the JCB Triumph Trial Juvenile Hurdle at Cheltenham and that was against a tough field of horses, with Duffle Coat probably the betting value at the time of writing.


The Triumph Hurdle heralds the start of the fourth day of the Cheltenham Festival, with several talented horses competing over two miles and one furlong and this is always a competitive betting heat where it can be difficult to find the winning horse.

This is a race for four-year-olds who are relatively lightly raced although we have often seen winners of this race come through and win other races at the Festival, with Allmankind currently trading among the favourites and could have the potential to play a big role.

Dan Skelton is the trainer of a horse who has scored three successive victories in his short career, with Skelton getting this runner into his stable on 22 October, with a success at Cheltenham being sandwiched by victories at Chepstow and Warwick.

Brother Harry Skelton is likely to be on board but perhaps Aspire Tower is the horse that could give him some serious competition, with Henry De Bromhead having high hopes for a horse who hasn’t put a hoof wrong thus far.

The Irish horse has performed well this season and female jockey Rachael Blackmore could give the runner a good spin as she has done at Punchestown and Leopardstown in November and December.

Then we have Goshen who is trading at a bigger price although the Gary Moore-trained horse has not done anything wrong, with the four-year-old having accrued a great rating so far and perhaps could be the value.

The French-bred horse has scored five successive victories since landing the spoils at Brighton in June, with Goshen following this up with a quick win at Sandown before a further three wins.

Willie Mullins is virtually certain to have some runners in this race, with Micro Manage having yet to be seen at an English racecourse although that hasn’t stopped the bookies making the horse among the favourites for the Triumph.

There were promising signs for the Irish raider when winning at The Curragh in June, with Donnacha O’Brien steering the even money chance to a fantastic win and this horse could be among the favourites.
