Charli Parcs Tipped For JCB Triumph Hurdle Success

The final day of the 2017 Cheltenham Festival gets underway with a very competitive renewal of the JCB Triumph Hurdle at 1.30pm and the unbeaten Defi Du Seuil is the bookmakers' favourite for Friday's curtain-raiser...

  • 10 of the last 12 JCB winners came from the front-four in the betting market
  • The Adonis and Spring Juvenile Hurdles have produced 10 of the last 17 JCB winners
  • 4 of the past 8 champions were French imports

Tips  Charli Parcs to win     Best Bet @ 4 / 1  

The Favourite

Defi Du Seuil has made a striking impression for Philip Hobbs, winning all five of his races and he has kept on improving in each contest. A slightly lax jumping style led to a few narrow successes early on but the son of Voix Du Nord has come on leaps and bounds since then to set the standard with victory in the Finesse Hurdle at Cheltenham at the end of January.

Defi Du Seuil is a 5/2 favourite (Bet 365) but we do fancy the chances of Nicky Henderson's Charli Parcs...

Competitive

Charli Parcs is next best at 4/1 (Sky Bet) after making a massive impression on his first start at Kempton in December, showing a startling turn of speed to romp to victory, before a potential clash with Defi Du Seuil in January was swerved because of soft ground.

Nicky Henderson's runner instead contested the Adonis Hurdle and the 4-year-old was right in the mix until he fell when two out. Better ground at Cheltenham could play right into the speedster's hands.

Master Blueyes was the big beneficiary of Charli Parcs' fall in the Adonis as he took victory, having previously lost out to the same horse at Kempton. Alan King's Master Blueyes is a 6/1 shot and it perhaps bodes well that the Adonis and Spring Juvenile Hurdle have produced 10 of the past 17 winners of the JCB Triumph Hurdle.

Mega Fortune won the Spring Juvenile Hurdle as he reversed the form with Bapaume, who had previously won a clash at Leopardstown on Boxing Day. Mega Fortune is sure to attract plenty of interest following Gordon Elliott's stunning week, although it is worth noting that only one Spring Juvenile winner has landed the past five JCB renewals, with the runner-up landing three in that time!

Therefore, Bapaume could be worthy of each-way attention (12/1 with SkyBet.com), while Landofhopeandglory (14/1) is another who makes appeal at a slightly longer price as Joseph O'Brien's runner was second to Bapaume at Leopardstown and has since finished third in a competitive Grade 3 at Fairyhouse.

Verdict

However, this is a desperately tricky race to call and we have to side with recent trends and focus on the first-four in the betting. Defi Du Seuil is a obviously a strong contender but we fancy Charli Parcs to bounce back from his unfortunate fall in the Adonis, with the faster ground sure to suit the French import and it bodes well that Nicky Henderson seems to have his entries bang in form for this Festival.
