Just three runners are set to go to post in Friday’s Racing Post Champion Hurdle at Punchestown which will see 2014 Champion Hurdler Jezki take on dual Champion Hurdle winner Hurricane Fly.
Jezki is currently easy to back in the betting at 4/5 having been installed at 8/11 with punters starting to get stuck into Hurricane Fly who is now Evens having been installed at 6/4.
Jezki’s stable mate, Steps To Freedom, makes up the field and is priced at 50/1 to spoil the party.
Liam Glynn, PR Executive at Boylesports said “Hurricane Fly is by far the best backed horse as he bids to land a 5th consecutive Punchestown Champion Hurdle.”
He added “Judging by the demand for Willie Mullins’ superstar, Hurricane Fly may well yet challenge for favouritism come race dayon Friday.”
