Upping the ante
There may not be too much to read into the absence of Annie Power and Faugheen yesterday but it is notable that you can get 3/1 the field in the Champion Hurdle in March.
What odds are both to run in the race? Arguably it is a much shorter price that Yanworth will partake and last season's runner-up in the Neptune - which is often a key trial for the Champion Hurdle - takes the eye at 18/1 after his winning return.
Betway eased his price after a workmanlike win over the hardy Lil Rockerfeller. The race was not run to suit Yanworth and it was impressive how he battled in the circumstances.
He is pleading for a strong pace, be it over two miles or farther, and he can go well when he gets it.
BET: Yanworth to win Champion Hurdle, 1pt each-way 18/1
