Cheltenham Festival Day 4: Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys’ Hurdle

The Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle is a National Hunt hurdle race inaugurated in 2009. Named in honour of Martin Pipe, a retired 15-time champion trainer, the race is held annually on Cheltenham’s New Course. It’s part of the world-famous Cheltenham Festival, taking place at the very end of Day Four.

As a handicapped race, the event offers a fairly level field, while showcasing top talent among up-and-coming conditional jockeys. As the final event of Gold Cup Day, the Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle draws considerable interest from punters. Despite its ungraded status, it’s a prominent part of the modern festival.

Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle: Tips, Predictions and Previews

At the time of writing, the field for the 2021 Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle is still yet to be determined. Therefore, it’s hard to make any meaningful predictions about the potential contestants. However, with almost a dozen years worth of races to examine, there are many trends worth taking a look at.

No horse has ever won this race twice, and neither have any jockeys. Willie Mullins has trained three Champions, though, while Paul Nicholls and Gordon Elliott have trained two each. All but two winners since 2009 were between the ages of six and seven. Betting favourites often do poorly in this race, with only one winning the event.

Ten of the winning horses since 2009 ran a minimum of three races that season. Seven of them had at least one previous run at Cheltenham’s New Course. It’s also worth noting that every single winner since the inaugural race was rated 133 or higher. Every winner has had at least one win over hurdles in the previous season.

Using these trends, you should be able to narrow down the field once it’s been shared with the public.
