Boodles Juvenile Hurdle 5 Places Each Way

PLEASE NOTE: We’ll confirm any extended each-way places for the 2024 renewal of this race once confirmed.

The Boodles Fred Winter Novices’ Handicap Hurdle always features a large field on Ladies Day at the Cheltenham Festival.

Run over 2 miles and 8 flights of hurdles, this is effectively for horses not good enough to be competitive in the JCB Triumph Hurdle, but it remains one of the best and most hotly contested handicaps not only of the Cheltenham Festival, but of the season as a whole.

For the 2022 Cheltenham Festival any field approaching the maximum 24 runners is very likely to see 5 places each way offered by online bookmakers, meaning an additional place over and above the standard 4 places each way. Of course, offering 5 places each way in the Fred Winter Juveniles Novices’ Hurdle is an excellent way to offer maximum profit opportunity for punters and is a promotion which will undoubtedly drive 2022 Cheltenham Festival new customer registrations for savvy bookmakers.

2022 Fred Winter Novices' Hurdle 5 Places Each Way

The Fred Winter Novices’ Handicap Hurdle was introduced into the Cheltenham Festival as recently as 2005, but the race is one of the most keenly contested handicaps on the whole Festival race card. Paul Nicholls has won 3 of these including 2 of the last 3 renewals with Qualando (2015) and Diego Du Charmil (2016). Diego Du Charmil has gone on to win the Scottish County Hurdle and it’s apparent that horses with a turn of foot are required to win the Fred Winter which is always run at a frantic pace over the 2 miles. Look for horses around the 11-stone mark to deliver. That was the case again in 2017 when Flying Tiger under champion jockey Richard Johnson won under 11 stone 5lbs.

With anything up to 24 runners across recent renewals, online bookmakers up until now have paid the standard 4 places each way at 1/4 odds for this Fred Winter Juvenile Novices’ Hurdle. However 2022 could see this change as the competitive nature of the online bookmaker industry would make any field of 22 runners rife for an additional each way place. We could certainly see 5 places each way for the Fred Winter in 2022. It’s worth remembering as a punter, that the big online bookmakers have a new customer war chest for the Cheltenham Festival, so offering additional each way places attracts new customers who spot the value to be had. Naturally 4 places covers circa 25% of the field – a situation which can only drive the chances of profit.

At the time of writing, no bookmakers have extended beyond the standard each way terms. As soon as this changes we’ll confirm details here.

We track the value provided by online bookmakers across the major National Hunt races. Extended each way terms gives punters a huge boost in terms of profit potential and is the perfect promotion for those who love to back big priced long-shots. With some High Street bookmakers still categorically giving their customers the standard each way terms, knowledgeable punters have been using online bookmakers who have been offering far better value to their customers now for years.

The 2022 renewal of the Fred Winter Novices’ Hurdle could be the year that sees online bookmakers offering extended each way places for the first time.
