Champion Hurdle Betting Preview & Tips

Day 1 – Tuesday 10th March 2020 – 3.30pm – Unibet Champion Hurdle – Grade 1 – 2m110y

And it is here! 

We have been waiting for the whole season for this year’s Unibet Champion Hurdle, but this time we are set for a very open contest. This can be easily seen by the highest runner that has a mark of 162. Last year’s winner Espoir D’Allen won from that rating, but four other rivals had higher marks in a field that was made of ten competitors. This year’s renewal looks below-par if you look at the form credentials of the main contenders, and it does open up for many interpretations. Still, it is a massive race with plenty of intrigue and lots of appeals.


Supasundae is the elder statesman in this course. This 10 years old is a very good Grade One performer having secured already three wins at the top level. He has great experience having competed in the top grade on his last 14 appearances. He did very well when back in the Irish Champion Hurdle, and the feeling is that conditions are good for him to display a good showing here. The softer ground will be excellent for this strong stayer. Supasundae looks well overpriced, and it is our pick in what will be an open affair. 

Our Verdict: Supasundae
