Champion Hurdle Trials

Champion Hurdle Trials

The Champion Hurdle is the feature race of the first day of the Cheltenham Festival and brings together the best two mile hurdlers in the sport. Cheltenham itself hosts two terrific Champion Hurdle trials in the Greatwood hurdle run at the Paddy Power Open meeting in November and the International Hurdle run in December (formally known as the Bula Hurdle). There will be a handful of entries who ran in the Supreme Novices the year prior as well so it's worth noting the form and whether the horse gets up the hill at Cheltenham or not.

Nicky Henderson's Buveur D'air was a winner of the 2017 Champion Hurdle.
