FEATHARD LADY NOW CLEAR FAVOURITE FOR CHAMPION HURDLE




Impressive Christmas Hurdle winner Feathard Lady has been cut to 9-2 (from 5-1) by Coral for the Champion Hurdle, in the process displacing today's Leopardstown runner-up Harchibald, 5-1 (from 9-2), at the head of the betting.


"With two Grade One winning hurdlers in his yard, perhaps only Colm Murphy knows which one is best, but for now, we're siding with Feathard Lady," said Coral spokesman David Stevens.
