Champion Hurdle predictions discussed in my look at the current and future crop of top two-mile to to 2m4f hurdlers; plenty of potential candidates in the staying hurdling division mentioned; can anything touch Altior among the top two-mile to 2m4f chasers; and Sizing John and the other top staying chasers are mulled over.
