2023 Heroes Handicap Hurdle Betting Odds at Sandown Park racecourse

Saturday, 04 February 2023

There are some recognisable names in the field for the 2023 Heroes Handicap Hurdle, with Call Me Lord and Remastered bidding for greatness at Sandown Park. The ten-year-olds are trained by Nicky Henderson and David Pipe respectively, with the latter having been victorious on two occasions this season and Tom Scudamore will be on board.

Coquelicot and Favori De Champdou are also among the front runners and they both come into the race with strong form, with this being a fantastic each-way betting race. However, it’s either Flight Deck or Grozni who looks set to go off as favourite, with punters advised to look for extra places and secure some price boosts along the way.

2023 Heroes Handicap Hurdle Tips

Flight Deck is among the favourites to win this race and the horse was successful when winning the Coral Racing Club Handicap Hurdle. Sent off at 10/1, the Jonjo O’Neill-trained runner was able to win impressively by four lengths, with the runner showing his prowess on soft ground over nearly three miles. Can he repeat the trick at Sandown Park?

Some might prefer the chances of Grozni who has recorded two wins in his past three races and the seven-year-old was successful last time out at Leicester. The runner was successful in a handicap hurdle over two miles, four-and-a-half furlongs, with the horse landing a success by the narrowest of margins. However, this is a big step up in class.

Call Me Lord is one of the more experienced runners and the ten-year-old last ran on New Year’s Day, with the horse finishing in fifth place in a handicap hurdle at Cheltenham Racecourse. Previously to this, he finished second in the Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle at Sandown Park, with Dolphin Square touching him off by a nose.

Remastered also has to be respected on current form, with the ten year-old having claimed two victories this season along with one runner-up placing. The Tom Scudamore-trained charge was able to oblige by nearly five lengths when winning over three miles at Kempton Park on 27 December and is among the horses with the most class in the race.
