2023 Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle Betting Odds & Racecard

Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle, named after the legendary trainer, is the penultimate race of the 2023 Cheltenham Festival, and if you haven’t made money from your bets by this point, it might be time to pack up and go home! Still, there should be a bit of value to be grabbed here so read on as we bring you our predictions and betting tips, along with the latest live odds comparison for all the runners.

Run over a distance of two miles and four and a half furlongs with nine hurdles to jump, it’s not the most challenging race at the Festival on the face of it, but for the lower rated horses that will run, it will certainly be an imposing contest. While the race has only been a part of the fantastical Festival since 2009.

Langer Dan heads the betting market to win the Martin Pipe, with the horse finishing second in the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle in 2021. It was a strong run to finish runner-up before being touched off by Galopin Des Champs. There was also a 2021 Imperial Cup win although the horse hasn’t been seen on a racecourse this season.

Chemical Energy looks a likely runner in this race, with the six-year-old having won at the end of November when lining up at Fairyhouse. Gordon Elliott’s runner looks a good Cheltenham each-way bet and the horse also finished in the frame when following home My Mate Mozzie in a Novice Hurdle in Navan.

Gerri Colombe is among the Cheltenham Festival betting favourites, with the six-year-old having won at Down Royal on Boxing Day. This is another Gordon Elliott-trained runner and there could be more to come from a horse who boasts an unbeaten record right now.

Good Time Jonny and Kilcruit are other notable runners, with the latter having finished second in the Champion Bumper at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival. There was a Flat Race win at Punchestown although the horse fell short when being sent off as the 4/9 favourite in a Maiden Hurdle at Leopardstown.
