New customer offer: Faugheen an awesome 8/1 to win Irish Champion Hurdle


Jamie Clark, Sports Editor | January 23, 2016

The Willie Mullins trained horse racing attraction that is Faugheen comes to Leopardstown for the very first time in the Irish Champion Hurdle this Sunday, and to celebrate Coral offer new customers a brilliant price boost.

A firm odds-on favourite at 1/3 in the regular race betting, punters who sign up and stake £5 can get an awesome 8/1 for Faugheen to win the Irish Champion Hurdle.

We’re talking about a fantastic horse that has won all but one of his dozen starts for trainer Mullins, who has had a real stranglehold on this race in recent years.

Faugheen to take up Hurricane Fly mantle

Hurricane Fly won each of the last five Irish Champion Hurdle renewals but, now he’s been retired, the torch looks to have been well and truly passed on to former stablemate and dual Kempton Christmas Hurdle winner Faugheen.

Coral regularly run promotions across all sports like this, enticing you to sign up, but this one looks like a Leopardstown banker bet for Sunday.

Be sure to register for an online or mobile account with us when this outstanding introductory offer begins at 17:31 GMT on Saturday, January 23rd and the Faugheen boosted price bet ends at the 14:45 race time the following day.

Faugheen won the English equivalent of this race last year at the Cheltenham Festival, making all the running to finish ahead of stable companions Arctic Fire and Hurricane Fly.

Faugheen to make it 12 wins in 13

The overall quality and strength in depth of the field in the Irish Champion Hurdle, compared to what Faugheen faced at Prestbury Park, is much less, though Mullins does hold outstanding claims of a possible 1-2-3 with Arctic Fire re-opposing and the nifty-looking Nichols Canyon also entered.

Faugheen’s near flawless form is what makes him stand out, and there’s £40 profit to be paid out in cash to punters if he delivers in this Irish Champion Hurdle as anticipated.

Should he falter, then Coral will compensate you with a £5 free bet which you can use across our mobile and digital platforms. It’s a win-win situation and well worth investing a fiver.
