2018 Champion Hurdle Preview PT 1

The Champion Hurdle is the de facto showpiece of the opening day of the Cheltenham Festival and it is usually one of the big races of the entire National Hunt calendar. There is plenty going on with this year’s iteration of the race and we come into the contest having a very short priced favourite dominating all of the ante post wagering.

This time around you can bank on the punters looking to Buveur D’Air as the big fancy on the opening day’s action. You have to assume that there will be plenty of punters using him as the free square in their multirace wagers and, should be wind up running to form that he has shown over previous points this season, you have every reason to believe that he’s going to romp home and deliver for the Cheltenham faithful.

Right now, you’ll be able to find Buveur D’Air trading anywhere between a ⅖ margin all the way up to a 4/7 margin and that makes quite a bit of difference depending on whom you’re combining him with in your accumulator bets.

That’s a pretty strong stand considering some of the competition that he’s going to be running against but many really feel as though he’s the natural successor to a lot of the famous hurdling greats that we have seen going over fences in the past few years.

Plenty of betting opportunities exist in the race, even if you’re looking to avoid betting on Buveur D’Air - but the market to watch in this contest really might wind up being the Betting W/O Buveur D’Air market.
