When is the Paddy Power Stayers’ Hurdle 2024? Cheltenham date, start time, runners and betting

Paddy's got his name on Thursday's big race!

Sire Du Berlais Paddy Power Stayers' Hurdle

Comments

That’s right, our fearless leader’s stuck his name on the feature race on the third day of the Cheltenham Festival once again.

The Paddy Power Stayers’ Hurdle provided one of the biggest shocks of last season’s fiesta as 33/1 veteran slugger Sire Du Berlais got the better of Dashel Drasher and Teahupoo in a thrilling finish.

The reigning champ could return to defend his crown at the age of 12 and this year’s renewal promises to be a tricky puzzle to solve as hardy old boys and emerging forces look set to clash in a battle of the generations.

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 boasts a prize pot in excess of £300,000.

While the Paddy Power Stayers’ Hurdle may lack the star names of the other championship races at the Cheltenham Festival, it should provide the biggest field and each-way options for punters.

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