TUESDAY 3.05 UNIBET CHAMPION HURDLE
1. Sharjah 2. Buveur D’air 3. Honeysuckle The Willie Mullins-trained Sharjah is hoping to make it third time lucky in the race after being brought down in 2019 and finishing second last year to Epatante. Although beaten last time out in the Irish Champion Hurdle by Honeysuckle, I think the gelding was given too much to do that day. With the better ground and stronger pace he is most likely to encounter at the festival, he should go well. It would come as no surprise if dual winner Buveur D’air was involved in the finish.
