Champion Hurdle Betting Guide
The highlight race of Champion Day is the Unibet Champion Hurdle, which has a fantastic £450,000 prize fund up for grabs for the horse and jockey that triumphs.
The Champion Hurdle will be especially exciting as Nicky Henderson’s ‘Buveur D'Air’, who has won this race for the last 2 years, returns to defend his crown for a 3rd time.
The French 8 year old has won 12 of his last 13 races, and with a 77.78% win rate, it’s no wonder bookmakers see ‘Buveur D’Air’ as a favourite to take the title for the 3rd year in a row.
‘Apple’s Jade’, the 7 year old Irish Bay mare trained by Gordon Elliott, is another of the top runners at most online bookmakers when you look at their Champion Hurdle odds.
‘Apple’s Jade’ has a pretty good record at Cheltenham, and given she has won her last 4 races and boasts a 68.42% win rate, Gordon Elliott’s mare is definitely one to keep an eye on.
British Bookmakers also see Willie Mullins ‘Laurina’ as another potential challenger for the Champion Hurdle that's taking place on Day 1 of the 2020 Cheltenham Festival.
The 6 year old French Bay Mare has never actually lost a race, and while this is a big outing for her, expectations are high, and she could easily keep the winning streak going!
‘Sharjah’, who is also trained by Willie Mullins, is also up there in the bookmakers top runners.
This 6 year old French Bay Gelding has performed well in the last 2 outings, winning the Ryanair Hurdle from Supasundae, and the Morgiana Hurdle at Punchestown in November.
The last amongst the bookmakers top 6 are ‘Melon’, yet another Willie Mullins runner, who is expected to perform well when looking at bookmakers Champion Hurdle odds.
Nicky Henderson’s ‘Verdana Blue’ is also a front-runner. Of course, there are a few outsiders that could easily steal the show, such as 'Brain Power' and also 'Supasundae'.
