The runaway market leader in the 2023 Champion Hurdle betting is last year's Supreme Novices' Hurdle winner, Constitution Hill. Nicky Henderson's star extended his perfect record to five following dominant victories in the Fighting Fifth and Christmas Hurdles during the first half of the season and Unibet make Constitution Hill their 1/3 favourite.
Sitting a clear second in the betting is Willie Mullins' State Man, who has now collected four Grade Ones in a row since winning last year's County Hurdle. State Man was last seen beating Vauban and Honeysuckle in the Irish Champion Hurdle. On the back of her second defeat of the season, Honeysuckle was confirmed for the Mares' Hurdle, meaning she won't defend her Champion Hurdle crown.
Along with State Man and Vauban, Willie Mullins has handed Cheltenham Festival entries to Sharjah and Echoes In Rain. Gordon Elliott is set to be represented by either Pied Piper or Zanahiyr.
Nicky Henderson could run former winner Epatante - who is also a possibility for the Mares' Hurdle - and Gerry Feilden winner First Street. Harry Fry has entered up his star mare Love Envoi, with Nigel Twiston-Davies likely to run Greatwood winner I Like To Move It. Other notable Cheltenham Festival entrants include Not So Sleepy and Jason The Militant.
