Final race of Gold Cup Day

The Martin Pipe Conditional Jockey's Handicap Hurdle is the concluding race to the Cheltenham Festival.

The race is open to conditional jockeys only, as part of the Festival's races for amateur and conditional riders.

The race is ran over is ran over 2 and a half miles, with nine hurdles to take over the new Cheltenham course.

The handicap mark to qualify for the race often differs year upon year, however horses have to be aged at least four to be allowed to run.

History of the Martin Pipe Jockey's Handicap Hurdle

The Martin Pipe Jockey's Handicap Hurdle is one of the new races in the festival, that was introduced to the Prestbury Park meet in 2009.

The race has never had an official sponsor and is instead named after Martin Pipe, who was a major national hunt trainer and retired a few years previous in 2006. The race was named in Pipe's honours in tribute to his outstanding achievements, having been crowned champion trainer 15 times and was a Cheltenham Festival winning trainer on 34 occasions.

Recent years

Early Doors edged to victory in 2019 for jockey Jonjo O'Neill junior for Joseph O'Brien and JP McManus.

Early Doors saw off well backed favourite Dallas Des Pictons who seemingly was travelling all over the winner and denied Gordon Elliot and Gigginstown a third successive victory in the race that would of levelled him with Willie Mullins' three race wins.

Mullins' three means he's won the race more than any other trainer, which is a regular theme across many of the other races at the festival for the legendary Irish trainer.

His first success back in 2011, in the races third running before winning back to back renewals in 2014 and 2015 however hasn't saddled the winner since. The full list of Mullins' wins can be seen below:

Willie Mullins:

Sir Des Champs (2011)

Don Poli (2014)

Killultagh Vic (2015)

With the race being a conditional jockeys handicap hurdle, it often means different jockeys each year and therefore no jockey has ever won the race on more than one occasion.

Despite that however, the race clearly is targeted by trainers and it's worth following them.

Early Doors' 2019 victory was another for Ireland, who have won five of the last six running's, including the last three so Gordon Elliot and Willie Mullins' runners are worth a close look at, with Elliot going for a third win in four years.

During the Irish dominance, they did have a year off in 2016 with Paul Nicholls, who won the race with Ibis du Rheu and also won the race in 2013 so he may be looked at too.

Joseph O'Brien won the race last year and anything he runs in 2020 could have a strong chance too but Gordon Elliot and Willie Mullins could pave the way to success in the festival conclusion.
