Champion Hurdle Tips
There are a handful of horses that are in with an excellent chance of winning the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham.
Many of the tipsters are backing Cornerstone Lad as an outsider who could do something special at 33/1.
The Mickey Hammond horse beat Buveur D’Air in November, laying a marker and will certainly one to watch ahead of the race.
Epatante is a clear favourite though and we’d certainly place an each-way wager on the Nicky Henderson trained horse, a man who knows all about winners.
Other horses to consider include Pentland Hills, another Henderson horse, who is training well and and his trainer is full of confidence.
Each-way also looks good on Klassical Dream, while Fusil Raffles may also be worth a look at around 20/1 with William Hill.
