2017 Champion Hurdle Betting Preview PT 2

Annie Power is unraced since capturing the Aintree Hurdle last year and, just a few weeks prior to that, took the Champion Hurdle over My Tent Or Yours when sent off at a very slim price tag of around 5/2 in that field.


Another Mullins/Ricci entry – Vroum Vroum Mag – can be backed anywhere from 7/1 to 16/1 for this race but is likely pointed elsewhere. If you're looking to get away from the Ricci/Mullins contenders then you're probably have a gander at Yanworth who comes into the race looking for his third victory on the bounce.

He has formed a fairly solid partnership with Barry Geraghty and will be looking to avenge his loss at Cheltenham last year when he went into the Neptune Novices as the slim 11/10 betting favourite but then wound up running second behind Yorkhill.

The New One could be one to watch in this race and he boasts a really enticing ante post price that hovers around a 16/1 to a 20/1 price tag right now. Look for him to attempt to build on that victory at Haydock last time out as it will have given him his groove back after losing out in the Christmas Hurdle on Boxing Day at Kempton behind Yanworth.

It's also worth keeping your eye on The New One to grab an each-way wager since examining his race form you'll note that even when he hasn't actually won a race he has been able to acquit himself really well against this type of competition. He is certainly in the mix here and can hold his own with any of the leading fancies – even if they are probaly a bit better at jumping and just that little bit faster on the run-in.

My Tent Or Yours is certain to be a sentimental favourite for a few punters here and he's rewarding anywhere from a 25/1 to a 50/1 margin depending on which bookmakers you're wagering with. This is the only race he actually boasts an entry for so if you think he could pull off one of the biggest stories of the festival then you're looking at a pretty decent margin for that to actually unfold.
