The Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle, better known as the Fred Winter Hurdle, is for four-year-old novice hurdlers only.
This race was created for those who couldn’t get into the Triumph Hurdle, the Grade One race for four-year-olds on the Friday of the Cheltenham Festival, but over the years, we’ve seen some very talented future Grade One horses come out of the Boodles Juvenile.
Irish trainer Gordon Elliott has farmed the race recently, saddling the winner four times since 2013, including last year when Jazzy Matty was successful.
