Epatante leads betting in latest Champion Hurdle odds


Epatante is now the favourite to win the 2020 Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.

Following Wednesday's latest forfeit stage, Ladbrokes made Epatante 10/3 to win the Day One feature ahead of Honeysuckle and Pentland Hills (both 9/2).

Cilaos Emery, who was supplemented for the race, has been quoted at 13/2.

Ladbrokes spokesperson Nicola McGeady told FreeTips.com: "Despite a scare last week, Epatante is a very solid favourite for the Champion Hurdle and with popular connections too, we are confident he will go off favourite."

Meanwhile, Kim Muir favourite Ravenhill has been very well backed for the National Hunt Chase in the last 24 hours and is now just 6/1 - in from 16/1.

"There has been a really interesting move for Ravenhill...suggesting that he will be rerouted to the National Hunt Chase," McGeady added.
