The Champion Hurdle competition showcases the best hurdling greyhounds in the country as 18 greyhounds attempt to make the final on Greyhound Derby final night. The competition kicks off on the 24th of May, with the final on the 31st. We previously previewed the Derby Plate competition which also concludes on finals night but whereas with that competition we steered clear of the market leaders it would seem foolish to do so with the Champion Hurdle given the quality of the greyhounds at the top of the market. Below we pick out two free greyhound racing betting tips of potential winners, with Totesport offering best price on both of the selections.
Arguments can be made for all of those at the head of the market but there are two that I like in particular, starting with Droopys Lorenzo at 13/2 with Totesport. Droopys Lorenzo is selected based on a belief he may have the best early pace in the competition based on his 400m hurdles Romford form. That early pace can translate into the lead at Wimbledon and his jumping has sure to have improved from last year meaning he will have the chance to make all.
Pivotally, Droopys Lorenzo is drawn in the same heat as the favourite, Cornamaddy Jumbo, and we fancy him to lead up and beat Jumbo then we reckon he is the better bet of the two greyhounds.
Our second free greyhound racing betting tip for the Champion Hurdle is to back Razldazl Butch at 8/1, again with Totesport. Butch took his chance in the Derby this year but couldn’t progress past the first round but he reverts back to hurdles and he flew round in a smart trial last week, recording 29:24s with a fast sectional.
It is the fast sectionals that make Razldazl Butch an interesting bet as he should ping out to lead his semi-final heat and that would put him on a clear path to victory, given that he obviously goes fast around Wimbledon. An impressive showing in the heat could easily see him amongst the favourites for the final.
The Champion Hurdle has an excellent field with 6 real top class hurdlers, all with great chances, but we’ve taken our chances on the above two having decided that their early pace can make them big players.
