Coral Enhanced Odds Offer: 12/1 on Annie Power to win the Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival on Tuesday 15th March 2016

With odds-on favourite Faugheen having been withdrawn from the 2016 Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival, the door is left open for stablemate Annie Power to romp to glory. The wonder mare has been installed as the 7/4 favourite with most bookies, but you can back Annie Power at enhanced odds of 12/1 with Coral!

Check out the details of that and other offers below and take a gander at our other Cheltenham Festival Betting Offers as the greatest event in racing rolls around!

Coral Offer – 12/1 Annie Power to win – New Customers

Coral 12/1 Annie Power Champion Hurdle Offer

Coral have replaced their almost ludicrously good Douvan 50/1 offer with a more sensible but still generous offer to new customers of 12/1 on Annie Power to win the Champion Hurdle on Tuesday 15th March 2016.

To get involved, just visit Coral using a link on this page, open a new betting account, deposit at least £5 and bet £5 on Annie Power to win the Champion Hurdle. Then if she does (and she’s widely tipped to do so) you’ll be paid out in a £60 free bet, with your £5 stake back in cash.

Also, if your bet loses you’ll get your stake back as a free bet to have another bite of the cherry in the next race!

Betfair Offer – 10/1 Annie Power to win – New Customers

Betfair Annie Power Enhanced Odds Offer 10/1 Champion Hurdle

New customers to Betfair can grab the excellent enhanced odds price of 10/1 on the Willie Mullins-trained mare Annie Power taking the victory in the feature race on the opening day of the Cheltenham Festival.

Note that this offer is valid only until 3.30pm (UK time) on Tuesday 15th March 2016!

The maximum stake is £10 and winnings will be paid in free bets, but £100 in free bets is not to be sniffed at should Annie Power win the race.

Also, if she doesn’t win, you’ll have your stake refunded as a free bet and – win or lose – you’ll get the chance to earn a further £100 in free bets when you place further real money bets at Betfair – which could come in very useful for the Cheltenham Festival.

Will Annie Power win the Champion Hurdle on Tuesday 15th March 2016

Annie Power has a quite exceptional record with 13 wins from her 15 races to date. There are a couple of notable blots on her copybook, however: in the Mares’ Hurdle at last year’s Cheltenham Festival she was cruising and four lengths clear of the field with just two hurdles left to clear… before she fell at the last, handing victory to Glens Melody. The year before at Cheltenham she took on the World Hurdle and she almost did the business. A better jump at the last and she might well have got the victory, but in the end it was More Of That who edge the win.

Annie Power has been imperious aside from those two incidents and she has every right to be placed as the favourite for this year’s Champion Hurdle after the withdrawal of Faugheen. The Willie Mullins-Ruby Walsh combination has been outstanding in recent times at Cheltenham and they might well combine again here to take the big prize on the opening day of the Festival.

Annie Power’s main rivals for glory come in the form of stablemate Nichols Canyon and Henry De Bromhead’s Identity Thief. It was the former who beat the latter in December in the Ryanair Hurdle at Leopardstown, but Nichols Canyon was some 28 lengths adrift from Faugheen in the Irish Champion Hurdle in January and, in truth, neither horse could be viewed as a true star.

Of course, as we saw last year, it is no foregone conclusion that Annie Power will prevail in the Champion Hurdle, but at odds of 12/1 (or 10/1 for that matter) she certainly offers exceptional value, so if you don’t already have a betting account with Coral or Betfair, you might be wise to get one, perhaps one at each!
