looked the one to beat on her form in winning the Christmas Hurdle and justified strong support in following up, coping well with more of a test of stamina than for either of her races earlier in the season, banishing ghosts from her poor performance when favourite for the Dawn Run in 2019; in touch, travelled well, not fluent 3 out, tracked pace home turn, jumped on last, ridden run-in, kept on well, won readily; she was a class better than an ordinary field, not required to improve much on what she did last time, though she clearly has more to offer, a clash with Envoi Allen at Punchestown, say, likely to challenge her more than this race did.

reached a place at Grade 1 level for the third start running, progressing a bit further, though with no excuses; chased leaders, travelled well, led approaching last, headed there, not quicken; he's developed into a very smart hurdler, though he probably won't be easy to place to actually win at this level.

All 17 ran. Hurdles: 8.

Winning Owner: Mr John P. McManus

Time: 4m 7.6s Closing Sectional: (4.10f): 59.00s (104.9%)

Overrounds: Industry SP 127%, Betfair SP 100.8%

The largest field for the Champion Hurdle since 23 went to post in 2009, though quantity wasn't matched with quality, most having best form which was some way short of the standard usually required, the bare form of Epatante's win, with the mares allowance, earning a rating from Timeform as low as any winner this century, though she was value for a bit more than the winning margin and the runner-up produced an effort marginally better than Sublimity and Hors La Loi III achieved in winning the race; there was quite a notable list of absentees that might have made an impact, including the first 2 in the Mares' Hurdle, last season's Champion Bumper winner Envoi Allen, the sidelined dual Champion Buveur d'Air, the very smart mare Verdana Blue, the Betfair Hurdle winner Pic d'Orhy and even the first 2 in the Supreme, not to mention the pick of a strong crop of juveniles, while the winner herself was a rumoured doubt for the race the previous week, reported to have coughed, Benie des Dieux, who would have needed to be supplemented, briefly an improbable favourite ante-post; for the third time on the afternoon, the race began from a standing start after the starter hadn't been happy with the field lining up, such an outcome entirely predictable and unsatisfactory, a review of starting procedures surely overdue, including the question of whether the starters themselves are contributing to the problem, the current system of the starters effectively marking their own homework, by deciding whether any riders were at fault, not allowing for that possibility.

EPATANTE (FR) looked the one to beat on her form in winning the Christmas Hurdle and justified strong support in following up, coping well with more of a test of stamina than for either of her races earlier in the season, banishing ghosts from her poor performance when favourite for the Dawn Run in 2019; in touch, travelled well, not fluent 3 out, tracked pace home turn, jumped on last, ridden run-in, kept on well, won readily; she was a class better than an ordinary field, not required to improve much on what she did last time, though she clearly has more to offer, a clash with Envoi Allen at Punchestown, say, likely to challenge her more than this race did.

SILVER STREAK (IRE) third in last season's running, ran to a similar sort of level, his jumping rather hindering his chance, though perhaps a place better was all he might have managed; held up, mistake third, headway when not fluent fifth, not fluent again next, ridden after, plugged on straight, never landed a blow.

SUPASUNDAE with a win in the 2017 Coral Cup and a second in the 2018 Stayers', couldn't enhance his Festival record, not finishing his race nearly so well as might have been expected; mid-division, pushed along 3 out, chased leaders straight, no extra last.

BALLYANDY wasn't disgraced, though couldn't add to a good Festival record, the form of his win last time and his effort in the International rather shown up in this, his third to the winner at Kempton the pick of his form this winter; handy, travelled well, not fluent 2 out, outpaced home turn.
