Outright Betting

Following the news that Faugheen has been ruled out of the Champion Hurdle, Annie Power, who will have to be supplemented for the race, now heads the betting at 7/4.

Arctic Fire, who was runner up in the race last year, is next in the betting at 3/1 with Nichols Canyon, who beat Faugheen earlier in the season, priced at 4/1 alongside the Henry De Bromhead trained Identity Thief.

My Tent Or Yours is priced at 7/1 for trainer Nicky Henderson whilst The New One, who was runner up in the race in 2013, can be backed at 10/1.

Following her seasonal reappearance victory at Punchestown, Annie Power was cut into 3/1 from 7/2 for the World Hurdle whilst she has been eased to 5/6 from 4/6 for the Mares’ Hurdle with stablemate Vroum Vroum Mag hardening into 7/4 from 5/2.
