Let our foolproof quiz pick your Champion Hurdle horse

It’s science.

IT’S THE FEATURE race on the opening day of the festival and there are any number of ways to pick a winner.

On paper, there should be no stopping favourite Buveur d’Air from repeating last year’s success but if you feel like his price is too prohibitive, then our foolproof quiz might just be the what you’re looking for.

Whatever you end up with, best of luck!
