4.50 Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle

Wednesday 11 March  |  Age: 4yo+  |  Prize: £80,000

The Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle is a Grade 3 National Hunt hurdle, open to horses aged four years only and run over a distance of about 2 miles and half a furlong.

THIS race is a tricky one because there isn't tons of form to go on given the relatively young age of the horses.

It's a juvenile handicap which means that only four year olds are allowed to enter but it often pays to side with a well respected horse from one of the bigger stables who tend to end up with the best juvenile horses.

This year I like the look of Mick Pastor and TRONADOR for the Nicholls and Elliott yards respectively.

I might have a bet on both come the morning of the race but at the present time my number one pick is Tronador.

Gordon Elliott seems very keen on him and it's entirely plausible that he has done just enough with the horse to get him qualified for this race and that the best is yet to come.

He is getting a big chunk of weight from his two main market rivals and I think he will go very close in the experienced hands of Denis O'Regan.

Recommended bet

THE top two in the betting for the Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle, Aramax and Mick Pastor, are both in the McManus camp and any market swing could prove significant.

Gordon Elliott saddles three and top man Davy Russell gets the leg up on RECENT REVELATIONS (4.50) at an each-way price.

Recent Revelations has eight lengths to make up on stable companion Aramax but a 6lb pull plus much softer ground can combine to close the gap.

Thurles maiden hurdle winner Tronador looks potentially well treated on handicap debut, while there has been plenty of clever money for Theatre Of War, a syndicate horse headed by golfer Shane Lowry.

Recommended bet

  • Recent Revelations e/w 20-1 (Bet365)

This race is very competitive and is often very hard to choose the correct horse, as a lot of them are very well handicapped.

My selection in this race is TRONADOR, who is once again trained by the master trainer, Gordon Elliott. I backed Tronador last time out at Navan where he ran a good race behind his stablemate Flouer.

On that day I thought he was given a weak ride, and it seemed like they weren’t fully going for the win, and in hindsight they probably had the Boodles race at Cheltenham in mind.

He’s got a nice weight of 10st 13lbs and he’s got a rating of 129, which is the same rating as Gordon Elliott’s previous winner in 2018, Veneer Of Charm.

This could be a coincidence, but Tronador is owned by the same owner as Veneer Of Charm, so this could’ve been a long term plan. He seems to handle the soft ground and will stay slightly further than 2m which could be handy on the stiff track, when tackling the uphill finish.

With 5 places on offer with most bookmakers he’s a good small EW play.
