The Paddy Power Stayers’ Hurdle is the feature on St Patrick’s Thursday at the Cheltenham Festival.

Flooring Porter joined the elite club of multiple winners of the Championship race thanks to a dominant performance in last year’s contest and Gavin Cromwell’s stable star is set to return for a hat-trick attempt.


There are 12 flights to be jumped over 3m on the New Course at Cheltenham and the leading long-distance hurdle race in the game looks set to be a wide-open affair in March.

You can run the rule over our antepost Paddy Power Stayers’ Hurdle odds on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise all the key details about this year’s renewal can be found below.

Paddy Power Stayers’ Hurdle 2023 betting

Paddy Power Stayers’ Hurdle odds are on paddypower.com and prices for the leading contenders can be seen on our snazzy widgets below.

Flooring Porter is the favourite with Paddy Power ahead of his crack at a third straight victory in the Paddy Power Stayers’ Hurdle, although the eight-year-old has failed to fire with a couple of fourth-place finishes this season.

Home By The Lee is next in our early market after emerging as a serious player in the division thanks to victories in the Lismullen Hurdle and Christmas Hurdle.

Klassical Dream, fifth in last year’s renewal, is also prominent in antepost betting after a narrow defeat behind Teahupoo in the Hatton’s Grace Hurdle on seasonal reappearance.
