The Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle 2021 Betting Odds Runners & Preview


The two-and-a-half mile Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle brings the curtain down on Cheltenham 2021 and gives the Conditional jockeys a chance to showcase their talents.

The race started in 2009 and is named in honour of Martin Pipe who notched up thirty-four Festival winners over the years before handing over the training baton to his son David.

It’s not an easy race to dissect albeit if you find a capable jockey who resists the temptation to ‘go too fast’ in this race, you have half a chance.

Willie Mullins is the leading trainer in the Martin Pipe having notched up a total of three winners, closely followed by Gordon Elliott and Paul Nicholls with two each.

Race Details
When: Friday 19th March, 4.50pm
Prize: £70,000
Distance: Two-miles four-furlongs
Race Type Handicap Hurdle 
Age: 4-Years+
Course New Course
Weights: Handicap
Where to watch? ITV, Racing UK, Bookmaker Streams
Key Betting Stats: Ten of the last twelve winners have been aged either five or six years old.

A couple of twelve-year-olds have won in that time.

Only one favourite has obliged (2011) in twelve attempts.

Verdict

No horse or jockey has won this race more than once but trainer Willie Mullins has an excellent record in this contest with three winners: Sir Des Champs (2011), Don Poli (2014) and Killultagh Vic (2015).

Gordon Elliott has won it twice – in 2018 with Blow By Blow and 2017 with Champagne Classic.

As it happens, the leading conditional jockeys also tend to ride for the leading stables and have the best chance of etching their names on the winner’s trophy

This race threw up a 25/1 winner last year and in eight of the last twelve renewals the victor has returned at a double figure price. Don’t just look at the market principals.

Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle Betting Tip 

After an impressive win in the Imperial Cup at Sandown, Langer Dan will attract plenty of interest in the final race of the Cheltenham Festival and is our main tip in the race given his current form.

Longshot to Consider

At bigger odds, look out for Fire Attack, who may be the main challenger from the Joseph O’Brien horse.
