Hurricane Fly is the hot favourite for the Champion Hurdle at only 8/11, short odds in a sizeable field over the hurdles. However, Hurricane Fly has won more than 60% of the races it has been run in and has performed well on all types of ground. Hurricane Fly is certainly a solid contender and it's hard to see many others putting up a challenge.
Binocular and Zarkander are second favourites. Binocular has performed well with AP McCoy and has won in recent months on both good and soft going and has won big prize money when it comes to the big events. Binocular is certainly a contender in this race and at 9/2 offers better value than Hurricane Fly.
Oscars Well and Rock On Ruby make up the other major contenders for this race at around 12/1. Oscars Well does not have a great win rate at around 25%, but is consistent at placing is looks good value for a place finish.
Rock On Ruby has performed well in large fields, winning a number of races with 10 to 15 runners. Rock On Ruby may therefore perform well in this race and could muscle his way into a place position.
