2024 Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle Betting Odds at Warwick racecourse

Saturday, 13 January 2024

Nothing quite beats a high-quality staying hurdle and the 2023 Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle is a severe test of stamina. That’s particularly when you consider the ground conditions although the six-year-old Walking On Air is the horse that has been installed as the stand-out favourite to land a victory in this race.

Nicky Henderson will hope that his runner can fend off some of the more experienced rivals and that includes Jungle Prose. The eight-year-old has achieved a string of victories for trainer Gordon Elliott, while Paricolor is trading at a similar price although the runner is yet to notch a victory this season.

2023 Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle Tips

Walking On Air is being afforded plenty of respect by the bookies when it comes to the Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle. Although the six-year-old hasn’t been in the winners’ enclosure this season, he looks to be a rock-solid each-way prospect. Consider the calibre of the opposition being faced this season and you see a horse posting strong performances.

For example, the horse was able to land third place in the competitive Daily Handicap Hurdle that took place at Aintree Racecourse in the beginning of December. That was over two miles and four furlongs on good to soft ground, although the horse racing betting sites actually think the horse could perform better with some cut in the ground.

As for Jungle Prose, there were four consecutive victories that were achieved between 20 October and 27 November, with the horse potentially having an off day when finishing fourth out of five horses at Limerick Racecourse last time out. Previously to this, he was able to beat 22 other rivals when obliging in a Handicap Hurdle over two miles and six furlongs.

We’ve also noticed ten-year-old Ronald Pump among the favourites and this is a runner with lots of experience when it comes to delivering big finishes. However, there is plenty to find on his previous performance and perhaps he can be passed over in favour of Paricolor considering the seven-year-old performed well at Chepstow last time out.
