2013 Triumph Hurdle latest odds

Friday's Triumph Hurdle looks ultra-competitive with three horses currently disputing favouritism for the juvenile championship.

The big Irish hope is Our Conor who has done nothing this season in winning all three of his starts, including a Grade 1 last time when beating the reopposing Diakali (14/1 Boylesports). Bookmakers clearly rate the chances of Dessie Hughes' hurdler as he's the general 3/1 favourite, with Coral's current price of 7/2 standout.

He faces a stiff British challenge, however, with the ex-French Rolling Star (4/1 bet365) in particular likely to pose a serious threat. His trainer Nicky Henderson has enjoyed five successes in this race already, most recently with Soldatino in 2010, and the four-year-old looks another high-class recruit, having won impressively on his British debut here. He is joined by stablemate Vasco Du Ronceray (20/1 Paddy Power).

Paul Nicholls landed this race with Zarkandar in 2011, and again in 2008 with Celestial Halo, and he must have high hopes for his Far West (4/1 Paddy Power), who has won all four races since arriving from France. He was particularly impressive when winning a Grade 2 contest at the track in November and is a good jumper in the main.

Nicholls has a second string to his bow in Lac Fontana (16/1 Paddy Power), who is expected to be suited by the stiff track, having been outpaced at Kempton last time. He will be staying on better than some. The third Nicholls runner, Sametegal (40/1bet365), has it to do on what he's shown so far.

Malton trainer John Quinn sent out Countrywide Flame to land the spoils at 33/1 12 months ago, and he fires two arrows at the race this time, with Hidden Justice (16/1 Ladbrokes) and Kashmir Peak (14/1 Betfred) set to represent him. Welsh Trainer Tim Vaughan relies on Swnymor (25/1 Betfred), who would have won a Graded hurdle at Chepstow two starts back but for falling.

The Gary Moore-trained Chris Pea Green (33/1 Sky Bet) was an impressive winner at Huntingdon on his latest start but this represents a much tougher task.

The field is made up by outsiders Gassin Golf, Somemothersdohaveem, Cape Explorer, King Of Dudes and Masters Blazing.
