The Champion Hurdle 2019 Tip

Back Summerville Boy for the 2019 Champion Hurdle
Loading
The Champion Hurdle tips market is interesting: Buveur D'Air is the obvious, and deserved, favourite but is going to be susceptible to something truly top class.

Samcro put in the best single hurdling performance of the entire festival week, but knowing the Gigginstown modus operandi, you'd think he'd be 80% likely to end up over the larger obstacles.

Summerville Boy looks worth a small investment at current prices. He put up an excellent clock performance at the festival and has to upgraded for that, given the mistakes he made at 2f-out and the last. The vibes from the Tom George yard are that he'll remain over hurdles and, with that in mind, 12/1 looks overpriced. You can expect improvement for another summer on his back and I think there's every chance he ends up favourite for this race a year down the line.
