Go Native is the 3/1 (from 4s) favourite with Coral for the Smurfit Kappa Champion Hurdle, following the news that Solwhit, who had been the 7/2 market leader, is not certain to line up next week. “Solwhit had been at the head of our betting since his Irish Champion Hurdle win in January, and news of his setback will come as a blow to his many ante post supporters, who will now be hoping he recovers enough to take his chance next Tuesday,” Coral‘s David Stevens told betrescue.com
Solwhit remains 5/1 at bet365, William Hill make Zaynar 15/2, Medermit is 8/1 at Skybet, Sportingbet also go 8s about Punjabi and Khyber Kim can be backed at 9s with the same firm.
