Newbury Betfair Hurdle Trends
Fri, Feb 8th, 2013

The Newbury Betfair Hurdle run in mid February is one of the most valuable handicaps in the calendar.

Paul Nicholls trained Zarkandar to land the 2012 renewal. Nicky Henderson's novice My Tent or Yours is the favourite for this years race. If you are having a bet note that Bet365, Paddy Power and Sky Bet are paying 5 places each way.
