Triumph Hurdle Betting Odds (March Update)
We’ve already got a strong favourite for the Triumph Hurdle, despite being a couple of months away from race day and that is Lossiemouth.
She has eased in the betting though, on the back of defeat at Leopardstown in early February. She’s now 15/8 while the horse that beat her that day, Gala Marceau, is third best at 5/1, and Blood Destiny is ahead of them both, heading the market at 7/4.

What Happened in the Triumph Hurdle 2022?
The Triumph Hurdle kicked off a day at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival where Ireland won all seven races, and this race in particular was a strong one for them.
