A true test of stamina over hurdles, the Stayers Hurdle is the equivalent of the Gold Cup, using the smaller obstacles, and we’ve seen some electric performances over the years.
This used to be the feature race of day three at the Cheltenham Festival, but it now shares that with the Ryanair Chase, but don’t let that take anything away from the value of this contest, it’s a real treat, usually served up with a high quality winner.

Stayers Hurdle Tips
The original feature race on this day, the emergence of the Ryanair Chase has changed that, but that doesn’t mean there is any less quality on show in the Stayers Hurdle. A division that is often wide open, which can lead to a great betting heat, even for a Championship race.
The runners are usually known for some time, as there is a lack of alternatives for these horses, so our tipsters will already have an idea of what they think will be the winner, and we’ll bring that to you when we reach Stayers Hurdle day in March.

Stayers Hurdle Betting Odds (January Update)
It’s 4/1 the field right now, with Home By The Lee heading the betting at those odds, with both Teahupoo and Blazing Khal in behind available at 7/1. The old timer Paisley Park would no doubt lift the roof off Cheltenham if he was to win, and he’s next in at 10/1.
What Happened in 2022?
We were treated to the Danny Mullins show in 2022, with an outstanding ride on Flooring Porter, to land back to back Stayers Hurdle titles. From the front, Mullins timed the race to perfection, keeping clear throughout but leaving enough in the tank to get up the hill and not be caught.
