Ted Walsh's Triumph Hurdle winner, Commanche Court, has been installed as the 10-1 favourite with the sponsors for the Ladbroke Hurdle at Leopardstown on 10 January. The chestnut, one-length conqueror of Circus Star at Cheltenham, is a top-priced 12-1 with William Hill and Coral.

Ladbrokes rate the chief British hope as Maurice Camacho's Alabang, a good third to Major Jamie in the William Hill Handicap Hurdle at Sandown earlier this month.
