Stayers Hurdle 2022 Entries: Klassical Dream and Champ feature in 33 strong entry list

Klassical Dream heads the ante-post betting for the Stayers' Hurdle.
Klassical Dream heads the ante-post betting for the Stayers' Hurdle.

Thirty three horses have been entered for the Grade 1 Stayers' Hurdle on March 17, and topping the list of runners is the ante-post favourite Klassical Dream, who will be bidding for victory for Willie Mullins on day three of the Cheltenham Festival. We take a look at the entry list here...

An emphatic nine-length winner of the Stayers Hurdle at the Punchestown Festival at the end of last season, Klassical Dream cemented his place at the top of the ante-post betting with a fine win in the Christmas Hurdle at Leopardstown in late December, and he will fly the flag for the Closutton team on the Thursday of the festival.

Reigning Stayers' Hurdle hero Flooring Porter was well beaten by Klassical Dream when the pair met over the festive period, but Gavin Cromwell's star performer showed his class when bounding to Stayers' Hurdle glory in March, and he is another prominent figure in the betting. 

Former RSA Chase winner Champ had been earmarked for another crack at the Cheltenham Gold Cup, but he was imperious on his return when winning the Long Walk Hurdle at Ascot, and Nicky Henderson has entered him for the Stayers' Hurdle as well as the Gold Cup the following day. Henderson is keeping his cards close to his chest in regards to what race the JP McManus-owned raider will run in, but were Champ to feature in this contest then he will be one of the leading British-trained contenders.

Another flying the flag for the British will be the Philip Hobbs-trained Thyme Hill, who missed last year's Stayers' Hurdle, but showed when bounding to victory in the Grade 1 Stayers' Hurdle at Aintree' Grand National meeting that on his day he is a force to be reckoned with. Beaten by Champ in the Long Walk Hurdle, Thyme Hill will be eager to reverse the Ascot form here, and is a notable home entry.

A dual winner of the Pertemps Final at the Cheltenham Festival, Sire Du Berlais was a fine second behind Flooring Porter in last year's event and Gordon Elliott's star features in the list of entries, while Goshen, Sporting John and Song For Someone are another classy trio entered.

Unsurprisingly, Willie Mullins has an extremely strong list of entries, and while his brigade are spearheaded by Klassical Dream he will have some notable second strings and the classy Asterion Forlonge is an interesting entry, after the grey has struggled to finish his races over fences, while former Triumph Hurdle winner Burning Victory and Cilaos Emery add more depth to the Closutton team.

Other eye-catching entries include former winners Paisley Park and Mcfabulous, with Thomas Darby and Darver Star adding more depth to the 33-strong entry list.
