Ryanair Hurdle – 14:00

My Tent Or Yours is my fancy for the Champion Hurdle come March and the one he’ll need to beat is HURRICANE FLY. This is a horse who has won two Champion Hurdles and has only ran one ‘bad’ race in over four years, and that was his third place in the 2012 Champion Hurdle. We can go on about Our Connor and Jezki all we like, they will improve throughout their careers but until they’ve shown that form that can beat Hurricane Fly when he’s at 90% I won’t be backing them to do so. He would have had plenty of work left in him for this race after his Puchestown success where he wasn’t at his best but still got the job done. 2.50 is way too big for a horse of this calibre and I would have been a backer at 1.9x. If the youngsters improve then so be it but Hurricane Fly hasn’t been this big a price in Ireland for over three years, has a horse who won a Champion Hurdle at 2.62 earlier this year regressed enough to warrant him being 2.50?
