The two-and-a-half mile Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle brings the curtain down on Cheltenham Festival 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.
