The Pertemps Final Hurdle is a handicap race and is run on the Thursday of the Cheltenham Festival after being served by several trial races throughout the National Hunt season. It's a Grade 3 handicap hurdle over nearly three miles, for horsers aged five years old and upwards. Many outsiders have claimed glory in the race in the past.

The Pertemps Final Handicap has produced several big priced winners in recent years with the average SP of around 20/1 since the year 2000, so clearly this is a bookmaker friendly handicap (where stakes are best kept to a minimum).

And now we'll take a closer look at this year's Pertemps Final Handicap and try to determine which horse is likely to prevail.

SIRE DE BERLAIS has yet to win since coming over from France but his 4th in the Conditional Jockeys race here last year was very promising.

FIRST ASSIGNMENT caught at Haydock when sent off 11-10 to beat a strong field which included Paisley Park. He understandably succumbed to the subsequent Grade 1 winner and finished third. He is unbeaten in two starts at Cheltenham and could have more to offer.

SAMBURU SHUJAA is on a hat-trick after two victories at Chepstow recently. His last run was his first in a handicap and won with something to spare off  a mark of 129.

WALK TO FREEDOM won at Navan in November and then followed that with a good 4th at the same venue in December. A 3lb rise shouldn’t worry him too much.

AARON LAD started the season with a decent 6th in a qualifier here at Cheltenham in October. Subsequently, he won by a length and a half from Jersey Bean at Market Rasen and scored an impressive victory in December when he beat Keeper Hill by three lengths over course and distance.

LOOKWHATIAM looks virtually certain to make the cut and have the opportunity to confirm the promise of his run at Warwick last time out, when he finished a good fourth.

THERMISTOCLES, trained by Joseph O’Brien, hhas shown much improved form since stepping up to three miles, defying what looked a stiff opening mark at Clonmel in November, and progressing further when finishing third in a Pertemps qualifier at Leopardstown over Christmas.

A TOI PHIL finished 4th at Punchestown last time out under a rarely-used 7lb claimer that qualified him for the Pertemps. That run was eye-catching to say the least. In his only three runs in handicaps with 18 runners or more, he has never finished worse than fifth.   

CUNEO won at Leopardstown over Christmas. He battled really bravely to get off the mark over timber when edging out Walk To Freedom and Theristocles, with Satoshi, Rock De Baune and Sire Du Berlais in behind. His subsequent fifth to leading Martin Pipe hope Dallas Des Pictons was definitely another step in the right direction.

THECLOCKISTICKING ran a career best effort at Cheltenham when fourth in a huge field over three miles last October, and makes plenty of each-way appeal at the current prices.

FLEMCARA was 3rd behind Lord Napier in a decent contest at Sandown but bounced back to winning form last time out at Exeter.

Other possible contenders that are worth a look are BLACK MISCHIEF, NOT MANY LEFT, CHAMPERS ON ICE and ABOLITIONIST.
