Champion Hurdle Preview
The Champion Hurdle is a Grade 1 National Hunt hurdle race in Great Britain which is open to horses aged four years or older. It is run on the Old Course at Cheltenham over a distance of 2 miles and 110 yards (3,319 metres), and during its running there are eight hurdles to be jumped. The race is scheduled to take place each year on the opening day of the Cheltenham Festival in March.

As its title suggests, the Champion Hurdle is the most prestigious hurdling event in the National Hunt calendar. It is the third leg of the Hurding Triple Crown. Its list of winners features many of the most highly acclaimed hurdlers in the sport`s history, and several of these, such as National Spirit, Hatton`s Grace, Persian War and Lanzarote, have had races named in their honour.
