Champ will bid to defend the Long Walk Hurdle and could renew rivalries with Paisley Park – but the contest won’t be taking place at Ascot after the fixture was canned because of frozen ground.

A month on from their enthralling battle to the line in the Long Distance Hurdle, the two horses will slug it out at Kempton after Christmas as they prepare to meet on track for the fifth time with the scores currently even at two-all.


Champ landed last year’s Long Walk Hurdle in impressive fashion on his return to flights, while Paisley Park has the 2018 and 2020 renewals on his CV so it promises to be a cracker between Britain’s leading staying hurdlers.

You can run the rule over our Long Walk Hurdle odds on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise all the key details about this year’s renewal can be found below.
