Latest Stayers Hurdle Odds Explained

This year, the Stayers Hurdle at Cheltenham Festival is known as the Paddy Power Stayers Hurdle due to sponsorship reasons. So if you’ve seen this race described as such, just to clarify, it’s the same as we are discussing here. As for the style of this race, horses must tear up 4.8km of track while leaping over 12 hurdles along the way. It’s not a race for the faint of heart. And the most recent Stayers Hurdle odds give us an idea of how the bookies see things:

  • Blazing Khal – 11/4 (3.75) odds
  • Marie’s Rock – 7/2 (4.50) odds
  • Teahupoo – 4/1 (5.00) odds
  • Home By The Lee – 5/1 (6.00) odds
  • Flooring Porter – 6/1 (7.00) odds

Looking at the odds for the top five favourites shows us that the field this year is very tightly knit. In years gone by, there has often been one horse that stands well clear of the rest when it comes to the Stayers Hurdle odds. However, this time around there isn’t much space between the bunch. As for the odds and their justifications, allow us to explain.

Blazing Khal is the current favourite because he hasn’t lost a race since December 2020. However, he hasn’t tasted victory in a G1 race previously. Then for Marie’s Rock, she has also been flawless in recent months. She’s won four from the last four races, including two G1 races – impressive stuff. However, Marie’s Rock is being chased by Teahupoo in the odds department.

This horse has 4/1 (5.00) odds thanks to a G1 and G2 win in December 2022 and January 2023, respectively. As for the final two horses, Flooring Porter won this race in 2022, and Home By The Lee has recently snagged a huge G1 win at Leopardstown in December 2022.

Final Stayers Hurdle Tips for the Upcoming Race

We are shooting for a bit of an outsider to win the Stayers Hurdle on Thursday, March 16th. The horse we are picking for the win is Home By The Lee, mainly because of the outstanding performance in Leopardstown just a few months back. And with the odds down at 5/1 (6.00), this is an absolute steal at the moment. However, if we had to make an additional play, we’d go for Flooring Porter as an each-way pick.

For those of you who aren’t satisfied with these basic wagers, however, we’ve got some extra Stayers Hurdle tips for you. Specifically, we’ve crafted an exciting tricast prediction with Home By The Lee in 1st, followed by Marie’s Rock in 2nd, and then Flooring Porter in 3rd. If this comes off, which is never guaranteed, the return could be fantastic.
