Champion Hurdle 2022 Result

15:30 Tuesday 15 March 2022

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

Distance: 2m 87y (Old)
Prize: £253,215 Age: 4yo+ Race Type: Hurdle Going: Good

Honeysuckle looked to have a lot in hand on form against rivals that had mostly shown themselves to have something to find to win an average Champion Hurdle, and she became the third odds-on winner of the race in the last decade, following Buveur d'Air, for his second win, and Faugheen, the lack of serious opposition shown up by her main market rival having been absent for a year, her victory almost routine, beating a pair that she'd defeated comfortably before, her form in a race run at an ordinary gallop probably not quite so good as that she showed when winning this in 2021, a much bigger threat to her hat-trick bid in 2023 having emerged at the start of the afternoon.

All 10 ran. Hurdles: 8.

Winning Owner: Mr K. Alexander

Time: 3m 50.8s
