2021 Champion Hurdle Trends and Free Tips

Champion Hurdle Trends

The Grade One Champion Hurdle is the feature contest on day one (Tuesday) of the Cheltenham Festival and is run over 2m on the old course. Here at JUICESTORM we give you the key Champion Hurdle trends to help you pick the winner based on past statistics. Use these trends to find the best profiles – including age, trainer, current form etc, of recent Champion Hurdle winners.

The Champion Hurdle is recognised as the most prestigious hurdling race of the jumps season and is currently sponsored by leading bookmaker Unibet.

The 2021 Champion Hurdle looks set-up to be another cracker with the powerful Nicky Henderson yard always a stable to look out for – they’ve won it eight times in the past.

Willie Mullins is the other handler to note with four wins in the last eight runnings and is sure to be well represented again in 2021.

The Champion Hurdle is currently sponsored by leading bookmaker Unibet – the 2020 Champion Hurdle winner was the Nicky Henderson-trained Epatante, who was giving Henderson his third Champion Hurdle winner in the last four years and his eighth success in the race in total.

Check out the recent winners and we give you the key Champion Hurdle trends to look out for ahead of the 2021 renewal – this year run on Tuesday 16th March.
