The Stayers' Hurdle Betting Tips

Even though the likes of Summerville Boy and Emitom appeal at each-way prices, I don’t think there’s much point looking beyond PAISLEY PARK. Emma Lavelle’s charge completed his ascent to the top of the staying ranks when winning this race 12 months ago, and I think he’s continued to progress since.

Paisley Park looks more mature, more assured this term. Although he didn’t win either the Long Distance Hurdle or the Cleeve by lengthy margins, I thought Aidan Coleman looked comfortable throughout both races and the favourite won with plenty left in the tank. I’m glad I jumped on Paisley Park at 6/4 earlier in the campaign, as that price has vanished. He’s not to greatest bet in terms of value, but Paisley Park looks the only likely winner.

Who will win the 2020 Stayers' Hurdle?

All eyes are on Paisley Park again this year, trained by Emma Lavelle. According to her,"Paisley Park is in great form ahead of the Paddy Power Stayers’ Hurdle at Cheltenham on Thursday. He’s absolutely flying. We couldn’t be happier with him.
That’s why I’m able to feel at this stage pretty relaxed. Everything has gone as well as it possibly could and so long as that continues until Thursday then there’s no reason to be anything other than relaxed."
