Ruby Walsh backing Hurricane Fly to win Champion Hurdle

Hurricane Fly odds tumbling for the 2012 Champion Hurdle after Ruby Walsh claimed he was a cracking bet for another Cheltenham Festival success

After saying live on Racing UK on Sunday that "he'd love to take a bit of 11/4" about Hurricane Fly for the Stan James Champion Hurdle, Ruby Walsh's wish has been fulfilled by the race sponsors.

StanJames spokesman Rory Jiwani told Bettingpro: "We had to put our money where our mouths were on this occasion so we've given Ruby a £100 bet on Hurricane Fly at 11/4 for the charity of his choice. He's chosen Our Lady's Children's Hospital in Crumlin, Dublin so they'll no doubt be hoping he retains his title.

"Punters have been very keen to back Hurricane Fly this afternoon after Willie Mullins said he was 'absolutely delighted' with his hurdling star's workout at Leopardstown. We initially trimmed the champ in to 5/2 but the money has continued to pour in and we've been forced to cut him to 9/4 for the big race on day one of the Cheltenham Festival."

Stan James Champion Hurdle antepost betting (EW 1/4 1,2,3):

Hurricane Fly 9/4
Grandouet 11/2
Spirit Son 7/1
Zarkandar 8/1
Binocular 9/1
Rock On Ruby 10/1
Unaccompanied 12/1
Oscar Whisky 16/1
Thousand Stars 20/1
25/1 bar
