Cheltenham Top Trumps: We rate the Champion Hurdle contenders

| 14.03.2016

We’ve nearly reached the end of the long and winding road to this year’s Cheltenham Festival and with the first day upon us it’s time to forensically analyse the runners and riders.

The Champion Hurdle is the feature race on the opening day of the four-day spectacular and we’ve done the hard work so you don’t have to when it comes to casting an eye over the leading contenders.

Each day throughout the Festival we’ll be bringing you our unique Top Trumps guide to the Championship races, kicking-off with this focus on the two-mile test of speed and jumping.

Is Annie Power too short in the betting? Can The New One deliver for the home contingent?

Here’s our take on the leading lights ahead of another fascinating renewal…
