The Stayers’ Hurdle is a Group One National Hunt competition, open to horses aged four years and older. It takes place on the 4,785 metre New Course at Cheltenham, consists of 12 hurdles and is one of the most prestigious long-distance horse races in Britain.
The Stayers’ Hurdle is an illustrious event in the National Hunt calendar, and it’s scheduled to occur on the third day of the Cheltenham Festival. It’s the second most popular race at The Festival, somewhat surprisingly given the level of action on offer throughout the week.
More than just an exciting spectacle to watch, the race provides a fantastic opportunity for punters willing to research the field in advance to find favourable odds on the expected runners.
Stayers’ Hurdle: Tips and Predictions
Horses like Mcfabulous and Roksana are expected to head back to the Cheltenham course this season.
Roksana is a fan favourite at the moment. The mare won the Grade 2 bet365 Hurdle at Wetherby on October 31st, overthrowing the reigning champion, Lisnagar Oscar, in the process.
Speculations about where Monkfish and Honeysuckle will finish next time makes for intriguing pre-event discussions.
Punters’ favourites to win the 2021 race include Mcfabulous, Roksana, Honeysuckle, Lisnagar Oscar and Laurina.
Roksana’s odds are 14/1 for the 3-mile Cheltenham Festival event. At the same time, Mcfabulous has garnered support after winning the Persian War Novice Hurdle at Chepstow, but he’s yet to move away from the novice club to tackle qualified hurdles.
