Unibet Champion Hurdle Additional Each Way Places

The Unibet Champion Hurdle is traditionally the first ‘Championship Race’ of the Cheltenham Festival.

Featuring the best speed hurdlers in the sport, the race is always a highlight of the season and is raced over Cheltenham’s stretching 2 mile hurdle course. Despite relatively small fields, a number of online bookmakers are always looking to give their customers value, so an additional each way spot is certainly not out of the question in 2024. So 4 places each way at the 2024 Champion Hurdle is a distinct possibility as bookmakers look to offer maximum profit opportunity for their customers.

2024 Unibet Champion Hurdle 4 Places Each Way

The Unibet Champion Hurdle in recent years has been the preserve of the very best trainers in the industry. Yes Jessica Harrington and Jezki turned over both the formbook and Hurricane Fly in 2014 at 9/1, but across the other 9 renewals this championship race has been the domain of Willie Mullins (x4), Nicky Henderson (x3), Paul Nicholls and now Henry de Bromhead, with Honeysuckle. Hurricane Fly, Faugheen and Annie Power have provided the winners for Mullins, with Buveur D’Air and Epatante winning impressively for Henderson across both 2019 and 2020.

With anything up to 17 runners across recent renewals, online bookmakers pay out the standard 3 places each way at either 1/4 odds or more often 1/5 odds for this level-weight race. However the Champion Hurdle is so popular with punters desperate for a serious bet, that a bookmaker may well introduce an additional place with 4 places likely for the 2024 Champion Hurdle. Naturally 4 places covers circa 25% of the field – a situation which can only drive the chances of profit.

At the time of writing, no bookmakers have extended beyond the standard 3 places each way terms. As soon as this changes we’ll confirm details here.

We track the value dished out by online bookmakers across the major National Hunt races. Extended each way terms gives punters a huge boost in terms of profit potential and is the perfect promotion for those who love to back big priced long shots. With some High Street bookmakers still categorically giving their customers the standard each way terms, savvy punters have been using online bookmakers who have been offering far better value to their customers now for years.

The 2020 renewal of the Champion Hurdle saw 17 starters go to post and some extended each way place offers were available. And that continued in 2021 where there were only 10 starters, but 4 and 5 places each-way at 1/5 odds terms were available.
