Ruby Walsh 1-5 to make Faugheen his Champion Hurdle ride

Last year’s Champion Hurdle winner Jezki is 5-1 (from 6-1) with Coral to retain his Cheltenham crown, a move that has seen favourite Faugheen eased to 11-10 (from evens). Coral has also today opened betting on which horse Ruby Walsh will ride in the Champion Hurdle, and go 1-5 that he chooses the market leader, and 7-2 that he sticks with dual winner Hurricane Fly.

“This is the first support we’ve seen for the reigning champion, with some punters clearly expecting Jessica Harrington’s charge to peak next month once again, although Faugheen remains clear favourite for the race, and is an even warmer order to be the chosen mount of Ruby Walsh on the big day,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
