Sublimity Backed for Champion Hurdle

Thursday 3rd January 2008

Sublimity has been backed to win the Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival. On his first run of the season in the Fighting Fifth at Newcastle he was as big as a bull and finished in third place and no surprise there has been money for it in recent days.

Totesport has cut Sublimity and Khyber Kim for the Champion Hurdle and Supreme Novices Hurdle respectively following good support today. Sublimity is now 4/1 from 9/2 whilst Kyber Kim is the new joint favourite at 8/1 from 10.

Paul Petrie, totesport spokesman commented, "We have seen good money for both horses throughout the day and although both are prominent in the betting, punters obviously think they still represent good value."

The firm has also opened up betting for the Pierse Hurdle and make Do the Trick and Roman Villa the joint 6/1 favourites.
