    Staged at Newbury racecourse the Grade Three Betfair Hurdle is run over 2m 1/2f in February each year. First run in 1963 the contest is always a hotly-contested race, while some punters might know the race better as either the Tote Gold Trophy or the totesport Trophy, being that’s what it was called before Betfair took over the sponsorship in 2012. Despite more obvious Champion Hurdle trials on offer during the season the race has thrown up two horses – Persian War and Make A Stand – that went onto glory at Prestbury Park in that race laterin theseason, while the 2003 winner, Spirit Leader, went onto land the County Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival the following month. Horse racing trends expert, Andy Newton, looks back at recent winners of the race and highlights the key stats ahead of the 2013 renewal – this year staged on 9th February.
