Champion Hurdle Betting Preview 

Buveur D’Air secured his eighth win on the bounce by triumphing at the Christmas Hurdle with a fine performance at Kempton Park on Boxing Day (see video below).

Nicky Henderson will now have his charge trained for the challenge ahead at Cheltenham Festival in the Champion Hurdle on Day 1.

The French horse is considered the leading contender amongst the bookmakers  for the crown and is well worth using a free bet via the Oddschecker site given the form of his rival Faugheen over the festive period.

The bay gelding has established himself as one of the most dominant competitors in the field and will be eyeing a defence of the Champion Hurdle Challenge Trophy crown he won last season.

Buveur D’Air’s winning run began at the end of the 2015/16 National Hunt season. He triumphed at Aintree beating out his compatriot Petit Mouchoir by a neck.

Henderson’s charge was able to kick on at the start of the new campaign, reeling off comfortable wins at Haydock Park and Warwick. The French horse ramped up his preparations for Cheltenham with a fine run at Sandown Park to defeat Rayvin Black in the Contenders Hurdle.

With Noel Fehily in the saddle, Buveur D’Air put forward the best performance of his career as he came through a talented field before speeding down the final stretch to canter to victory by four-and-a-half lengths ahead of My Tent Or Yours.

The six-year-old was considered the leading contender for the Aintree Hurdle and he did not disappoint to end the season on a high note, defeating My Tent Or Yours once again – this time, by five lengths.

Henderson ensured that the French horse began the new campaign without losing momentum. Barry Geraghty took the reins for the Fighting Fifth Hurdle and he sat off the pace of the race leaders before making his charge three fences before the end of the meet.

He surged down the final straight to beat Irving by three-and-a-half lengths at Newcastle.

In Summary

Buveur D’Air entered the Christmas Hurdle in form and once again had the pressure of expectations.

The race was not as smooth as his previous outings as he was shaken up early in the meet. However, Geraghty managed to keep the bay gelding on track to charge down the final stages of the race.  He overtook The New One on the last fence and was able to see out the victory by two-and-a-half lengths.

Should he maintain his current level of performance, there should not be a competitor that can match his speed at Cheltenham in March.
