Coeur Sublime 50/1 into 16/1 for the Champion Hurdle

Coeur Sublime

Gordon Elliott's Coeur Sublime has been moved massively in the Champion Hurdle market ahead of the Tuesday feature in March at the Cheltenham festival.

The four year old has been ran fairly frequently for his age but has seemed to use these experiences to come on leaps and bounds this season and now poses a serious threat for the Champion Hurdle.

The four year old raced six times last year winning on his debut and then going on to place in some smart events but never getting off the mark again.

He placed superbly in the Grade One Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival and then followed that up in a Grade Two at Fairyhouse with a smart third.

The gelding has never been a horse to set the world a light with plenty of novices last term that were head and shoulders above him.

However, now going over hurdles for a second season it could be the making of him with the horse maturing, growing and looking like a different horse all together.

He made his seasonal reappearance in the Grade Two WKD Hurdle at Down Royal at the start of November and hacked up, beating a small field of talented runners from last season with ease.

This sent huge signs into the betting markets for Cheltenham especially the Champion Hurdle which looks to be the path the four year old will take.

Before Coeur Sublime had raced this season he was a huge 50/1 to take the day one feature but is now as short as 16/1 and has to be taken seriously.
