Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle Tips - Cheltenham 2021

Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle 2021 Tips – Day 1, 16:15

This wide open juvenile handicap usually unearths a plot or two, with some meticulous plans coming to fruit as these unexposed horses often tackle a handicap for the first time. Any market moves on the day are very significant, particularly from runners based in the smaller yards in Eire, and winning form in the past might mean a punitive mark (horses like Duffle Coat and Adagio who have shown their hand might be vulnerable despite their prominent market positions).

Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle 2021 Preview

The Boodles juvenile handicap hurdle is always one of the most fascinating betting heats of the opening day at the Cheltenham Festival, with some unexposed juveniles plotted up to try and get into this valuable handicap on a lenient mark.

The cash on the exchanges can arrive for the least likely looking candidates, and the Irish yards in particular have been very succesful in laying one out for the day. The current market is headed by the 5/1f Quilixios, who impressed when beating Saint Sam in a Leopradstown Grade 1 in February, and remains with scope to improve after just 4 unbeaten runs over hurdles.

He has not been missed by the handicapper as a result of that, and perhaps one of those less exposed at the foot of the weights will emerge as a leading candidate on the day (with decent ground for the first time in months sure to shake up the formbook).

Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle 2021 Betting Tips

Riviere D’etel, Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle Tip #1

Gordon Elliott’s promising ex-French performer did not come off the bridle to make a winning debut at Punchestown on New Years Eve, and could be thrown in now handicapping with testing ground no issue and loads of scope to keep improving.

Nassalam, Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle Tip #2

Gary Moore is well capable of preparing one for the big day, and this juvenile created a deep impression when winning a couple of weak races at Fontwell in deep ground earlier in the season. He has come unstuck twice recently, but was far from disgraced behind the high class Monmiral at Haydock last time and could be just the sort to improve for a strong run big field handicap (can take a keen grip and likely to settle properly).

Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle Winners

This is a relatively new race for the Festival, with the first running only in 2005 and Tuesday is a new posiiton for a very compeititve juvenile handicap. Irish trainers often plot up an unexposed one here to land the cash, and Aramax was a classic example for Gordon Elliott and JP McManus when he impressively swooped late in 2020.
