The West Yorkshire Hurdle odds will be here when available...
THE WEST YORKSHIRE HURDLE IS A PATTERN RACE TRIAL FOR THE STAYERS' HURDLE AT CHELTENHAM
The West Yorkshire Hurdle is run under the sponsorship banner of Bet365 and is one of the key early season trials for the Stayers Hurdle at Cheltenham in March. The race takes place at Wetherby each year and is run on the same day as their Charlie Hall Chase and it is a Grade 2 contest which always seems to attract a stellar cast list.
This race gives punters an early season chance to see some of the stars of the staying hurdle division and has been won by horses such as Tidal Bay, Inglis Drever and Cole Harden in recent years which highlights the quality of the West Yorkshire Hurdle
