Nicky Henderson’s six-year-old has not been seen since beating Barwell Bridge at Cheltenham back in December and heads the market ahead of Mister Hyde at 8/1.
“Lush Life showed a likeable attitude under pressure when winning at Cheltenham last time out and having only had seven career starts to date, there could well be more to come,” said totesport spokesman George Primarolo.
Looking ahead to the Cheltenham Festival, there has been further support for Grands Crus in the Ladbrokes World Hurdle market following his demolition of the Cleeve Hurdle field on Saturday and David Pipe’s grey is now 9/4 second-favourite (from 11/4).
There have also been a couple of Nicky Henderson-trained horses supported ahead of the totesport Trophy as the master of Seven Barrows aims to improve on his already-enviable record in the race. Solix has been backed into 10/1 (from 16/1) with the sponsors whilst Eradicate has also been nibbled to 16/1 (from 20/1).
