Last year, the Nicky Henderson trained Buveur D’Air produced a career best performance to beat fellow JP McManus owned My Tent Or Yours and in 2018.

Both of those horses are set to take their chances again in the 2018 Champion Hurdle, along with two or three other main threats to the Champion Hurdling crown.

Who will be the next name etched onto the Champion Hurdle ‘Roll of Honour’?

Main Players

With a perfect build up to a successful defence of his crown so far in the 2017-2018 National Hunt season, Buveur D’Air is the clear odds on betting favourite to win a second Champion Hurdle, which would mark him down as one of the rare few horses who can pull of that feat.

Meanwhile, Faugheen will be hoping to emulate Hurricane Fly and Comedy Of Errors as the only horses to win, lose and then regain the Champion Hurdle, but he needs to re-find his best form.

The best of the Irish could turn out to be Melon, an improving young horse with bags of talent and priced at odds of around 8/1 he looks decent Champion Hurdle betting tip too.
