2015 Champion Hurdle Result

Willie Mullins dominated the Champion Hurdle as the Irish handler trained the first three home in the opening day showpiece at the Cheltenham Festival, and it was the heavily-backed Faugheen that saw off his stablemates to win the prize and land the Grade 1 event for favourite backers.

Sent off a red-hot 4/5 favourite, Faugheen was sent to the front from the off and he maintained his lead throughout and having kicked clear of his rivals turning for home, he was eventually chased home by 20/1 short Arctic Fire, with dual winner Hurricane Fly running a cracker in third place.
