Cheltenham Festival Champion Hurdle news

SunSport will bring you all the latest news on the key players in the build up to the Champion Hurdle.

Honeysuckle looks all set to make her seasonal bow in the Grade 1 Hatton’s Grace at Fairyhouse on November 28.

Zanahiyr earned himself a clash with reigning champ thanks to a nice victory in the Grade 2 WKD Hurdle in Down Royal at the end of October.

Speaking afterwards, trainer Gordon Elliott told the Irish Times: “He has grown a lot and will jump fences in time, but he’ll stay hurdling this season.

“Jack [Kennedy] said he was trying to wind it up the whole way. He stays really well and will step-up in trip. I’d say the Hatton’s Grace is the obvious race for him now.”

Sharjah was mightily impressive in winning a second Morgiana on November 14, seeing off Zanahiyr by three lengths with a struggling Echoes In Rain a further 12 behind.
