Christmas Hurdle

Christmas Hurdle Betting

The Christmas Hurdle is one of the very best races on the card at Kempton Park on Boxing Day. The King George is of course the highlight but this one is a key Champion Hurdle trial as well as being a top Grade 1 race in its own right. Any winner of this race will shoot towards the head of the Champion Hurdle betting which is enough alone to ensure that it is always worth watching.

This race has been won by some great hurdlers in the past including Harchibald who won this race on two occasions, but incredibly they came in 2004 and 2008! More recently we have seen Binocular, Darlan and My Tent Or Yours all claim wins in the race for trainer Nicky Henderson while Faugheen won this in 2014, before going onto win the Champion Hurdle.
