Head of PR Charlie McCann: ” The weights will rise by 8lbs as a result of Kauto Star’s defection and Denman will bid for an unprecedented hat-trick off a mark 8lbs higher than last year. His main market rivals will all be out of the handicap but with Ruby Walsh sidelined is there a possibility that the former Gold Cup winner will not even go off favourite?. He went off an uneasy 2nd fav (5/1) when winning in 2007 but was a very well supported market leader (11/4) last year; will the punters get behind him in his quest for an unprecedented treble or will one of the talented second season chasers head the market on Saturday week?”
Who will start favourite for the Hennessy Gold Cup?
