Wednesday's Throwback Race Of The Day

Buveur D'Air

Today's throwback race of the day goes back to the jumps and one of the best races at the 2018 Cheltenham festival deserves to be relived.

The 2018 Champion Hurdle was always set up to be a cracker with Buveur D'Air looking to defend his title and land back to back renewals and the young pretender Melon being gambled on massively before the off.

There was a fierce pace set from the start by another of Nicky Henderson's horse Charli Parcs and off the back of that it gave those horses a good toe into the race.

What a race.
