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.

Reigning and defending two-time champion, Honeysuckle has drifted out to 8/1 after her unbeaten run came to an end in the Hatton's Grace Hurdle at Fairyhouse. Honeysuckle will bid to get back on track in the Irish Champion Hurdle next month, where Henry De Bromhead's mare could face fellow Champion Hurdle rivals State Man and Vauban, who finished first and second in the Matheson Hurdle over Christmas.

Along with State Man and Vauban, Willie Mullins has handed Cheltenham Festival entries to Sharjah, Sir Gerhard and Echoes In Rain. Henry De Bromhead could also run Bob Olinger, with Gordon Elliott set to be represented by either Pied Piper or Zanahiyr.

Nicky Henderson could run former winner Epatante 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, Knappers Hill and Jason The Militant.
