International Hurdle Betting
The International Hurdle is a National Hurdle race at the New Course at Cheltenham Racecourse. It is a Grade 2 race for four year olds and over, and takes place during December each year.
The race is run over 2 miles and 1 furlong, with 8 hurdles to be negotiated along the way. It carries a prize purse of 150,000 and is the second leg in the 'Road to Cheltenham'. The other two 'Road To Cheltenham' races are the Fighting Fifth Hurdle and Champion Hurdle Trial, and it then finishes with the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham. The race itself is a great opportunity to have a bet, while it is always worth looking out for the odds of a Champion Hurdle winner in the betting as well thanks to its importance for guaging form for Cheltenham in March. The last time a horse won the Champion Hurdle after winning the previous International Hurdle was Rooster Booster in 2003.
