Ryanair Hurdle Betting

The Istabraq Festival Hurdle is held each year during the Christmas Festival at the Leopardstown Racecourse in Ireland. It is a Grade 1 National Hunt race for four year olds and over, and is run over a distance of 2 miles with eight hurdles to be jumped.

First held in 1986, it was recognised as a Grade 1 race in 2002 and is often seen as a trial for the season's pinnacle of the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham Festival in March. In fact two horses have won the December Festival Hurdle and the Champion Hurdle in the same season, they are Brave Inca and Istabraq.

In terms of betting, recent trends show that four of the last five December Festival Hurdle winners have been aged 7 or 8 years of age. The ante-post odds favourite for the race has won only once in the past five races.
