Pertemps Network Final Handicap Hurdle Betting Tips

There’s clearly been a plot behind THE STORYTELLER’S tilt at the Pertemps, and I’m fully prepared to jump aboard Gordon Elliott’s bandwagon. Over fences, The Storyteller won the Brown Advisory Plate here at the Festival in 2018, before scooping a shock Grade One win in a dramatic renewal of the Growise at the Punchestown Festival.

Having struggled during his second season as a chaser, Elliott switched his charge back to hurdles in the winter. The Storyteller powered to victory over two future winners in the Kilsheelan Hurdle at Clonmel, before an astute Davy Russell ride saw Elliott’s nine-year-old book his spot in this final with a sixth-place finish in the qualifier at Leopardstown. The Storyteller has been kept fresh since then and he should be a big player off a mark of 149.

I’m also inclined to take an each-way punt on One For The Team, who’s impressed with his consistency in high-profile staying handicaps. After banging on the door during the first half of the season, Nick Williams’ charge powered to a hugely impressive victory at Newbury, beating Dolphin Square by 14-lengths. If One For The Team is sent here over the Albert Bartlett, he makes huge appeal sitting on 20/1.
