2008 Champion Hurdle

Katchit won the 2008 Champion Hurdle and ended Ireland's dominance in the race for trainer Alan King. The five year old had won the Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival twelve months earlier and gave a game performance up the hill when under pressure to win by a length from Osana. The Nicky Henderson trained Punjabi finished five lengths further back in third, one place ahead of the outgoing champion Sublimity.
