Robbie Power’s Cheltenham 2020 Day 1 Tips – Champion Hurdle
Robbie Power joins us to give his best bets for the Champion Hurdle on Day 1 of the 2020 Cheltenham Festival.
3.30 Champion Hurdle
I’m looking forward to riding Supasundae here, he’s got a lot of things in his favour. He’s got soft ground over 2 miles at Cheltenham, should be ideal.
A lot of people are saying it’s not a vintage renewal but it’s a very competitive Champion Hurdle. A lot of the horses are covered very close by ratings but I wouldn’t swap Supasundae.
Look at his two runs at the back end of last season, when he beat Buveur d’Air in Aintree and then was second to him at the Punchestown Festival over 2 miles. He’s a dual Grade 1 winner over 2 miles.
He’s got good course form as well.
He won a Coral Cup at Cheltenham and he was second in the Stayers’ Hurdle so I think he’s got a massive chance and at his price is a good each-way bet here.
Best Bet: Supasundae (10/1)
