Cheltenham Thursday 15.30 Odds – Paisley looks in a league of his own at 4/6

Champion Paisley impossible to oppose

Cheltenham Festival

This year’s Paddy Power Stayers’ Hurdle features what many people believe to be The Festival banker.

However 14 rivals are still taking on defending champion Paisley Park, despite bookmakers agreeing with punters.
The Paddy Power Stayers’ Hurdle takes place on day three of the Cheltenham Festival and is a Grade 1 hurdle over three miles.
It is the championship contest for long-distance hurdlers and has been won by some of the best hurdlers in the history of jump racing, including Thistlecrack, Big Buck’s, Inglis Drever and Baracouda. Multiple winners and odds-on favourites are not uncommon.

Paisley should enjoy a stroll around Prestbury Park

When the odds bookmakers is offering betting without the favourite, it is usually a sign atht layers are running scared of the market leader.
It really is very difficult to look beyond defending champion PAISLEY PARK in this at a general 4/6.
He will never have supporters entirely happy as he often hits a flat spot in his races. But it rarely lasts long and he currently has no equal once he hits top stride.
He’s won both races this season with consummate ease and holds the second favourite on the form book as well as beating most of these 12 months ago.

Festival form a plus for Summerville

Summerville Boy is 17/2 with Betvictor, who are paying out on the first four places for each-way purposes and was second to Paisley Park in the Cleeve Hurdle when racing off level weights.
That was a solid effort and he is a Festival winner himself so there is no reason why he won’t make the frame again.

Emitom facing acid test

A general 10/1, Emitom has only raced over 3m twice before.
He was second in a Grade 1 novice event at Aintree last season and won the Rendlesham at Haydock on his second try.
Almost certainly in need of the run when well behind Summerville Boy in the Relkeel on his only previous run at Cheltenham, he still has untapped potential but may need the mud to show his best so drying ground would be a problem.

Island would need to return to his best

City Island won the Ballymore at The Festival 12 months ago but subsequent efforts over fences have been disappointing.
It could be a return to hurdling will see him rejuvenated and he’s had wind surgery recently but there are too many imponderables in his profile to merit more than a passing glance at 14/1 with Betvictor.
