Champion Hurdle 2019 Free Bets, Tips & Stats

  • Cheltenham Festival

    The Champion Hurdle is the most prestigious race in the hurdling calendar. Open to horses aged 4 years and older and at a distance of 2 miles ½ furlong, it’s a race that many trainers, owners and jockeys want to win. The race takes place on the old course at Cheltenham on the first day of the festival. In recent years it has been a profitable race for punters, with favourites like Annie Power, Faugheen and Hurrican Fly winning the race. With sizeable prize money of over £225,000 for the winner, The Champion Hurdle is the main race of Tuesday’s meeting.

Champion Hurdle 2019 Tips
  • This is probably one of the races of the festival for me. Buveur Dair has won it the last 2 times and is competing to make it 3 in a row. This year looks like a much stiffer test however, with 2 Irish mares in Apples Jade and Laurina looking to steal the English Prince’s crown.

    From the top 3 in the betting (Buveur Dair, Apples Jade and Laurina), Laurina is the only one that has a realistic chance of qualifying for the betfair and Bet365 3-1 or 4-1 offers, but even then I think it’s unlikely. So if you are looking for a horse to back in this one on Bet365 I’d be looking to Sharjah. At 12-1, it’s a huge price and I might even back him e/w from a punters perspective. I think this race will be very close, so won’t be looking at High 5 or free bets for lengths here. For 2nd place and 2nd sp refunds, back either of the 2 horses that aren’t favourite on the day.
