Irish Champion Hurdle Betting

The Irish Champion Hurdle is a Grade One race over 2 miles for horses aged four years or more. It is run at Leopardstown race course and takes place in January. It is Ireland's premier hurdle race and has a glittering roll of honour of past winners. Over recent years it has become more than a trial for the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham Festival instead it is likened to a pre-run as their will be several of the top hurdles from both Ireland and the UK who will be in both races.

The race was won in 2009 by Brave Inca, who had previously won the race in 2006, when he also won the Champion Hurdle. Other recent dual winners include the brilliant Hardy Eustace and the incomparable, Istabraq who won this race four times on the bounce between 1998 and 2001 and won the Champion Hurdle three years running from 1998 until 2000, sadly he was denied a four timer by the cancellation of the 2001 Cheltenham Festival.

The 2010 race was won by ante-post favourite and previous December Festival Hurdle winner Solwhit who justified the bookmakers' short odds to emerge victorious.
