2023 Pertemps Final Betting Odds & Racecard

The Pertemps Final is the second race to be run on St Patrick’s Thursday at the 2023 Cheltenham Festival, which this year actually falls on St Patrick’s Day itself. With the Guinness certain to be flowing, there’ll be mirth aplenty at this famous meeting, but will there be winners aplenty too? Here we bring you the latest information, predictions and betting tips for this listed three mile handicap hurdle, and we also have the latest live odds comparison to ensure you get the best price around, whoever you back.

The race is open to runners aged five years and older, but there has only ever been one five-year-old winner since the race was inaugurated in 1974 (Pragada in 1988) with 12 six-year-olds and 11 seven-year-olds taking the glory along with a smattering of older horses.

After the opening race on Day Three of the 2023 Cheltenham Festival, we then move on to the Pertemps Final which is run over two miles and seven furlongs. Sire Du Berlais landed victory in this race in 2019 and 2020 before Mrs Milner obliged for trainer Paul Nolan.

The 2023 Pertemps Final betting odds will change a great deal as we get close to the race in March, although it’s virtually certain that we’ll have a wide open betting market. That means that you can place a Cheltenham each-way bet and get a return if the horse that you back runs into the frame.

Winter Fog is likely to run for trainer Emmet Mullins, with the eight-year-old having finished second in the Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle qualifier and that performance in December came after a lengthy break from last season, although perhaps the winner of that race will be prominent in the 2023 Pertemps Final odds.

Panda Boy runs for lesser-known trainer Martin Brassil, with the horse having run an underwhelming race as favourite in the BetVictor Brown Lad Handicap Hurdle, while he then kicked on to land that recent win at betting odds of 16/1 and we’re unlikely to find that price available when it comes round to this race.

Ardhill could also line up for trainer Gordon Elliott, with the seven-year-old having won the Foundation Developments Novices' Handicap Hurdle at Ascot just before Christmas, although this will be a step up in class.
