Champion Stayers Hurdle Preview: Bacardys the tip-ple
Nic Doggett previews Thursday's Grade 1 Champion Stayers Hurdle and picks out his best bet.
Willie Mullins is the leading trainer of the Champion Stayers Hurdle with six wins – four of those came via Quevega – and amongst his seven runners this year he has the favourite in the shape of Stayers’ Hurdle winner Penhill.
Pen to write history?
Penhill didn’t have his anticipated Flat campaign last year (reportedly not easy to train), and was having his first run since this meeting last year when winning the Stayers’ Hurdle at Cheltenham last time by two lengths from Supasundae.
