Champion Hurdle 2021 Result

15:05 Tuesday 16 March 2021

UNIBET CHAMPION HURDLE CHALLENGE TROPHY (Grade 1) (1)

Distance: 2m 87y (Old)
Prize: £189,911 Age: 4yo+ Race Type: Hurdle Going: Gd/Sft

A vintage winning performance in the blue riband of hurdling, even if the cupboard in the division continues to be pretty bare, Honeysuckle's route to victory eased by her main market rivals not being at their best, though they would have struggled to land a blow even if they had been, her performance above average for the race since the days of Hurricane Fly at least, fair to say that the sex allowance enhanced her margin of victory rather than made a difference to the outcome, though a third successful mare in the race in the last 6 runnings may raise the question of that allowance - brought in just in time for Dawn Run - though removing it would surely have the effect of driving the top mares towards the David Nicholson, which is not for the overall good, surely; the race was run at a sound pace and the form looks very straightforward to interpret.

All 10 ran. Hurdles: 8.

Winning Owner: Mr K. Alexander

Time: 3m 55.5s
