Hurricane Fly has been cut to 5/2 from 3/1 by Coral for the Champion Hurdle after sustained support for the Willie Mullins trained hurdler.

Even by his standards Willie Mullins has an incredibly strong team on paper for the Festival and Pont Alexandre, who won on Sunday along with Hurricane Fly, has also been backed today into 3/1 favouritism with Coral from 4/1 for the Neptune Investments Hurdle.

“There is serious market confidence in the chances of both Hurricane Fly and Pont Alexandre and Willie Mullins appears to have assembled one of his strongest ever teams for this year’s Cheltenham Festival,” said Simon Clare, Coral Spokesman.

In the Betfair Hurdle Ronaldo Des Mottes was popular today with Coral clipping him to 12/1 from 16/1.
