Stayers' Hurdle odds: Teahupoo and Crambo amongst favourites

Last year's runner-up Teahupoo will be looking to go one better in the 2024 renewal of the Stayers' Hurdle on Thursday afternoon.

Gordon Elliott's seven-year-old went off as favourite in last year's race but was forced to settle for second following Mark Walsh's sensational ride on 33/1 shot Sire Du Berlais.

The Stayers' Hurdle looks typically difficult to call once again this week, and there are a number of contenders in with a chance of claiming the Grade 1 race.

Teahupoo

The favourite is yet to win at the Chetenham Festival after finishing ninth in the 2022 Champion Hurdle before last year's tussle with Sire Du Berlais.

He has had one outing so far this season and it was a thoroughly impressive performance in the Hatton's Grace Hurdle at Fairyhouse in December.

Teahupoo beat the likes of Impaire Et Passe and Ashroe Diamond that day and he is likely to relish any soft ground.

Crambo

A Cheltenham debut awaits for Crambo, but the proven stamina levels he possesses are sure to stand Fergal O'Brien's horse in good stead.

His seasonal reappearance at Aintree was impressive and after claiming the Long Walk Hurdle at Ascot, Crambo's odds tumbled for this one.

He beat some familiar faces in Paisley Park, Dashel Drasher and Champ on that occasion, and he looks to set to run a big race this week.

Noble Yeats

The 2022 Grand National winner has had a crack at the Ultima and the Gold Cup in previous years, with attention now turning towards a tilt at the Stayers' Hurdle.

Winning the Cleeve Hurdle was a welcome return to the winners' circle but that victory at Cheltenham was no mean feat and the conditions should suit this week.

Flooring Porter

This back-to-back Stayers' Hurdle winner (2021 and 2022) loves running at Cheltenham.

He ran a strong race for Gavin Cromwell as he attempted a hat-trick last year but had to settle for fourth place.

More Cheltenham success followed on first outing of the season back in October, but he was underwhelming in the Florida Pearl Novice Chase at Punchestown before finishing third at Leopardstown in the Grade 1 Neville Hotels Novice Chase last time out.

Sir Gerhard

Willie Mullins' nine-year-old is a former winner of the Champion Bumper and the Ballymore at the Cheltenham Festival.

The 3/1 shot struggled in the Brown Advisory Novices' Chase last year and his career was seemingly stalling before a successful return to hurdles at Punchestown on New Year's Eve.

That win has put him firmly in contention for the Stayers' Hurdle this week.

Paisley Park

A number of near misses has meant that Paisley Park has not tasted victory since the Long Walk Hurdle on Boxing Day in 2022.

So far this season he has finished second in the Long Distance Hurdle at Newbury, the Long Walk Hurdle at Ascot and the Cleeve Hurdle at Cheltenham last time out.

His best days might just be behind him now, but a final spectacular hurrah shouldn't be ruled out for this Festival favourite.
