2020 Champion Hurdle Tips I’ll let you know right from the get-go, I won’t be having a big bet in this year’s Champion Hurdle. Even if Honeysuckle does run and Epatante is fully fit – quotes from Nicky Henderson’s stable tour suggest she is – I have no strong opinion about any of the runners […]

Willie Mullins’ six-year-old was beaten on his first start under rules, but he’s bounced back with two hugely impressive displays. Patrick Mullins sat happily just behind the pace at […]
