Welsh Champion Hurdle Betting

The Welsh Champion Hurdle has moved to mid-October from February and is one of the highlights of the national hunt horse racing campaign in Wales and it is sure to offer a competitive betting heat. The race is now a 2½ mile affair for horses aged four years or older, while in 2013 it was changed to a limited handicap to ensure greater appeal.

The race itself was originally held at Chepstow in April each year but it was terminated in 2002 before it was renewed at the up-and-coming Ffos Las course in 2010. It was seen as a perfect base for runners ahead of a potential crack at the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham Festival, although the changes to the race mean that the race is more likely to offer a few interesting pointers for the variety of handicaps that take place at the Festival in March.

Nicky Henderson's Oscar Whisky actually won this race in 2011 before finishing a fine third in the Champion Hurdle a month later and it is sure to provide plenty of betting interest as Cheltenham's showpiece meeting moves ever closer.
