Greatwood Hurdle Trends and Tips

The Greatwood Hurdle, this year, will at the Cheltenham November Meeting and is being sponsored by leading bookmaker Unibet for the first time.

Run over 2m ½ f on the Old Course the contest gives National Hunt racing fans some early season pointers ahead of the Champion Hurdle, run at Cheltenham at the Festival in March – Rooster Booster (2002) was the last horse to win this race and go onto land that same season’s Champion Hurdle.

Since 1988 the race has been won four times by the Pipe stable, three times by Philip Hobbs and three times, including in 2015, by ex-champion trainer Paul Nicholls.

Here at JUICESTORM we take a look back at recent winners and gives you the key trends to look out for ahead of the 2017 renewal…..this year run on Sunday 19th November.
