Faugheen Goes Odds On For Champion Hurdle

Faugheen is now 4-5 favourite from 5-4 for the Champion Hurdle after a superb display at Kempton to win the Christmas Hurdle.


“Faugheen is firmly the one to beat in the Champion Hurdle and although the Cheltenham Festival is weeks away, we are already ducking for cover from the Willie Mullins’ favourites,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.


Champion Hurdle: 4-5 Faugheen, 6-1 Nichols Canyon, 8-1 Arctic Fire, 12-1 Peace And Co, 14-1 My Tent Or Yours, 20-1 Sempre Medici, The New One, 25-1 BAR
