2021 Cheltenham Stayers' Hurdle Tips

Cheltenham Race – Stayers’ Hurdle

The Stayers’ Hurdle draws centre stage on day three of Cheltenham Festival. The race will be held on St Patrick’s Thursday in the 2021 Cheltenham Festival, and all eyes will be on Paisley Park to see whether he can bounce back from a shocking performance in 2020.

The defending champion was odds-on to claim the crown for a second year in a row. However, Emma Lavelle’s charge was well off the pace and finished down in seventh. Lisnagar Oscar was the beneficiary with an incredible effort as a 50/1 outsider, beating out the competition with ease.

Lisnagar Oscar is scheduled to return for the 2021 race, and may once again be considered an outsider. Lightning cannot strike twice, surely?
