Pertemps Network Final qualification races and eligible horses for Cheltenham Festival 2023

The qualification rules have changed for this season...

Pertemps Network Final


The Pertemps Network Final Handicap Hurdle is one of the big betting races on Thursday at the Cheltenham Festival.

The contest always attracts a bumper field of runners due to the riches on offer to connections of horses that would otherwise fall short of the standard required for the top level.


A top-six finish in one of the many qualification races was required to become eligible to run in the final, but the rules have changed for the current campaign. A horse must now place in the first four to punch their ticket for March’s showpiece.

The latest Pertemps Network Final odds are on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise you’ll find dates of the upcoming races in the series and the horses that have qualified below.
