2022 Champion Hurdle Entries

Honeysuckle brushed aside all challengers to claim her second Cheltenham Festival win 12 months ago. Henry De Bromhead's star remains unbeaten, completed hat-tricks in the Hatton's Grace and the Irish Champion Hurdle this season and Unibet make Rachael Blackmore's mount their 4/7 favourite.

Second in the market we find Appreciate It, who hasn't been seen since romping to victory in last year's Supreme Novices' Hurdle. 2020 Champion Hurdle winner, Epatante has returned to form this season and she sits prominently in the market.

Gordon Elliott could thrust two talented five-year-olds, Teahupoo and Zanahiyr into the mix. Last year's Triumph Hurdle runner-up, Adagio could also represent the five-year-old brigade.

Tommys Oscar will be Ann Hamilton's first-ever runner in the Champion Hurdle when he lines up on day one of the Cheltenham Festival. Other notable entrants include Saint Roi, Quilixios, Glory And Fortune and Not So Sleepy.
