Champion Hurdle Background

The Champion Hurdle is the feature race of the opening day of the Festival and is the most prestigious of all the national hunt hurdle races. It involves a distance of 2 miles and half a furlong and is open to four year olds and over. With a prize purse of £370,000 it marks the final leg of the 'Road to Cheltenham' - which includes the Fighting Fifth Hurdle, International Hurdle and Champion Hurdle trial.

Several horses have won three Champion Hurdles in the past, while more recent winners include Istabraq, Rooster Booster, Brave Inca, Punjabi and Binocular. It is Binocular who looks to record a successive win in 2011 and match the same feat of Hardy Eustace in 2004 and 2005.

Nicky Henderson is the joint leading trainer with five, after claiming successive winners in 2009 and 2010, alongside Peter Easterby. The leading jockey is Tim Molony who won four times aboard Hatton's Grace (1951) and Sir Ken (1952, 1953, 1954).
