Champion Hurdle Contendor Overturn reigning Chester Cup Winner
The winner of the last race is smart young hurdler Overturn, a horse that gamely leads but tends to get done in the final couple of furlongs when in top company. Having raced in the International at Cheltenham and behind Binocular in the Christmas Hurdle it’s priced 33/1 for the Champion Hurdle.
