Faugheen Favourite To Regain Crown

Faugheen is the 6-4 favourite with William Hill to regain his Champion Hurdle crown, with Annie Power 5-1 to retain her title after her breath-taking victory at Cheltenham.

“We think Annie Power might just be keeping the Champion Hurdle throne warm for Faugheen,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
