Champion Hurdle Trends 2023

One of the best places to start with big races is considering key trends for the races from which you may find horses at bigger prices. Here are the main trends for the Champion Hurdle 2023 to help you with your bets.

  • Irish-trained horses have an excellent record in the race, having won 7 of the last 10 Champion Hurdles.
  • It pays to back the favourites - 7 of the last 10 winners have been short-priced favourites.
  • Only 1 of the last 10 winners was aged over the age of 8, which was Hurricane Fly aged 9.
  • Cheltenham Festival form pays off - 14 of the last 24 winners had won at the Festival previously.
  • Nicky Henderson has an impressive record in the race with 8 wins to his name.
  • 15 of the last 16 winners finished in the top 3 last time out.
  • 10 of the last 16 winners had previously won 2 Grade 1 jumps races.

Constitution Hill Hot Favourite for the 2023 Champion Hurdle

Constitution Hill has been imperious in both his victories this season, shaking off high-class horses, including his stablemate and former Champion Hurdle winner Epatante by 12 lengths and then 17 lengths. The impressive way Constitution Hill quickens out of deep ground is a sight to behold and it is no surprise that bookmakers have priced him up odds-on for Cheltenham's 2023 Champion Hurdle.

Trainer of Constitution Hill, Nicky Henderson, described his potential superstar as 'extraordinary' following his Supreme Novices' Hurdle win last year at the Cheltenham Festival with stablemate Jonbon back in second. He said:

"That was awesome. I know what the second horse is and I would have been very surprised if anything could have done that to Jonbon, so he must be an extraordinary animal. The hype horse earlier on in the year was Jonbon, then this fella woke up from his slumbers at home and we suddenly realised that actually he was very good."

"He’s been very good but the big question was how much he actually knew, he’s run in two hurdle races with four runners in each. To suddenly go out there and go at that gallop, that’s the extraordinary thing. He can travel so easily at that pace and then pick it up, to find gears at the end of a headlong gallop like that was extraordinary."

Cheltenham Champion Hurdle Tips

Constitution Hill looks the very likely winner of the race this year so it is worth looking at the 'without Constitution Hill' market with leading bookmakers.

State Man is his biggest danger following his impressive festival win last year and has racked up three impressive victories since. Following his win at the Dublin Racing Festival in the Irish Champion Hurdle, his trainer Willie Mulllins said:

"It wasn't the ideal situation(making the running), so it was a nice performance to come out and do that. Paul surprised me when he came into the parade ring and I asked him what he was going to do and he said he was going to make it,. He didn't see much to make it in the race so I said 'okay, do that'. It worked out, the horse is not used to being in front but he jumped well enough in front and Paul thought he was a bit idle in front as well. He did everything right and you couldn't ask anymore."

At 10-1 for Tuesday's showpiece, Vauban is worth consideration as he put up an eye-catching performance on his seasonal debut against State Man and then chased home State Man and Honeysuckle in the Irish Champion Hurdle at Leopardstown last month, finishing only half a length down to Honeysuckle in the Irish Champion Hurdle last time.

Cheltenham Champion Hurdle News

The next time all eyes will be on Constitution Hill is at the Cheltenham Festival in the Champion Hurdle as trainer Nicky Henderson recently announced his Champion Hurdle hot favourite will head straight there without a prep run.

We will have to wait for the Irish Champion Hurdle to find out whether Honeysuckle will take her chance at Cheltenham. A decision will be made after her next engagement at Leopardstown. Rachael Blackmore is confident she can show up well at Leopardstown:

"The first time we went there (in 2020) we were unsure over two miles but what she's done since over that trip has been incredible.

"She seems to really enjoy going around Leopardstown and it's a fantastic festival. There was some atmosphere there last year and she got an unbelievable reception so I'm really looking forward to getting back on her again and hopefully we can have some success."

Not So Sleepy looks likely to take his chance in the Champion Hurdle for trainer Hughie Morrison. This versatile and talented type finished third behind Constitution Hill in the Fighting Fifth at Newcastle and finished sixth last season in this contest. Retirement is also on the cards for the eleven-year-old who has been a great servant for connections.
