31 Entries For Cheltenham Champion Hurdle

The Nicky Henderson trained Binocular heads the 31 entries for the Stan James Champion Hurdle to be ran on March 15th the opening day of the 2011 Cheltenham Festival .

Binocular won the race last year and has proved he is currently in fine form with an easy win in the re-arranged Christmas Hurdle at Kempton last weekend . Binocular is best price at 3/1 with Boylesports and is one of five entries for the Henderson stable .

Sponsors Stan James are currently offering 1/4 odds a place 1-2-3-4 for the Champion Hurdle and this is a very good offer as the race often does not attract many runners . The last four runnings of the Champion Hurdle have seen the following runners :

2010 12 Runners

2009 23 Runners

2008 15 Runners

2007 10 Runners

Horses such as Menorah , Hurricane Fly and Peddlers Cross seem certain to run in the Champion Hurdle and are all very good each way value with Stan James . This special promotional offer from Stan James is only available until noon on the 22nd January so it is important to act quick to grab the value .

At odds of 5/1 on Menorah and Hurricane Fly , Stan James are currently top price both horses and Menorah has proven top form around Cheltenham having won the Supreme Novice Hurdle at the Festival on the opening day in 2010 and winning the Greatwood Hurdle at the 2010 November Cheltenham meeting .

Currently no other bookmaker is offering place terms for the first four in the Champion Hurdle .
