Constitution Hill next race: When is Champion Hurdle hero returning to the track?

Here's Conny!

Constitution Hill

It’s fair to say Constitution Hill is established as the top dog in the National Hunt game after an all-conquering 2022/23 campaign.

Nicky Henderson’s stable star comprehensively landed the Grade 1 Fighting Fifth, Christmas Hurdle, Champion Hurdle and Aintree Hurdle to add to the Supreme and Tolworth titles won in his novice hurdling season.

The prospect of going chasing in a bid to emulate Champion Hurdle and Gold Cup heroine Dawn Run was floated by connections, although Constitution Hill remains over sticks for the time being.

Constitution Hill is set to return to the track in the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham on Tuesday, March 12 – although a poor racecourse gallop at Kempton was followed by a dirty scope that has thrown his participation in the championship race in doubt.

Trainer Nicky Henderson said: “Of course you’re worried, you’d be crazy not to be. Something’s gone wrong, obviously. I’m sorry I can’t tell you exactly where we are. I’m certainly not going to rule him out at this stage.”

Paddy Power spokesman Paul Binfield said: “We pulled the market after the Constitutional crisis and have now put it back up with Constitution Hill, who was 1-4 before the suspension, and State Man as 1-2 joint favourites.

“Nicky certainly hasn’t pulled stumps yet on his stable star and we’re Non Runner Money Back so if things go well his latest price could be very generous on the day, while if he doesn’t make it to that even more famous hill, State Man has to be these odds as he has proved he is the best around bar one.”

Constitution Hill could make his final appearance of the season in the Aintree Hurdle at Aintree on Thursday, April 11.
