The Irish Champion Hurdle odds will be when available...
The Irish Champion Hurdle is the Irish equivalent of the Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival and all the big names turn up to what is the Irish trial for the Champion Hurdle.
All the leading contenders line up at Leopardstown to determine the Irish pecking order before the 4 day festival as there is six weeks rest before the big meeting of the year in the two mile hurdle division. Some legendary names have won this race in recent years including Hurricane Fly who won this race on multiple occasions before going onto Cheltenham.
