Champion Hurdle: Get 40/1 on Honeysuckle to Win


Day one of the Cheltenham Festival is all about one superstar, and that is Honeysuckle.

She won the Champion Hurdle of 2021 in dominating fashion, and returns to defend her crown today, which many expect her to do and she is available at 40/1 to do so, with an enhanced odds offer from 888Sport.

A win for the Henry de Bromhead trained runner will no doubt raise the roof off Cheltenham racecourse, given that she is seen as one of the bankers of the meeting by many punters. From the second she won the race last year, through the summer and then during this season, she has been favourite for this race, and today, she is a strong odds on favourite, as expected.

Rather than taking the 4/6 currently available, new customers with 888Sport can back Honeysuckle to win at 40/1, when they sign up to a new account and use the promo code ‘888ODDS’. 

The eight-year-old will once again have the services of Rachel Blackmore on her back, the jockey who was named the Cheltenham Festival top jockey last season, with wins that included the Champion Hurdle on Honeysuckle.

As for preparation ahead of this season’s race, things couldn’t have gone any better. Honeysuckle won the Irish Champion Hurdle for a third time, taking her unbeaten run to 14 races.
