Betting on the Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle
Weight, ground preference and form over the 2 mile 4 distance are the three things you’ll need to line up with race day conditions when making a selection in the Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle betting markets. Keep in mind wins over this distance within the last season will trump recent form over longer or shorter distances, especially if there is big variance with your horses’ race day handicap.
