Hurricane Fly easy to back as nine declared for Champion Hurdle

Hurricane Fly is the 2-1 (from 7-4) favourite with Coral for Tuesday’s Champion Hurdle, following the final delcarations.  Zarkandar is the 7-2 second favourite, ahead of last year’s winner, Rock On Ruby, at 4-1.

“With three previous Champion Hurdle winners, plus three other Festival winners in the line up, Tuesday’s race is shaping up to be a highly competitive affair, and with the money coming for Zarkandar, Rock On Ruby and Binocular this week, Hurricane Fly has been relatively easy to back, although he is still sure to feature in plenty of day one accumulators, along with My Tent Or Yours, Simonsig and Quevega, and wins for all four would see bookmakers hit with one of their most expensive days in Festival history,” reckoned Coral’s David Stevens.
