Following support for Nicky Henderson’s first jockey Barry Geraghty is into 9/4 from 3/1 at Coral to be the Cheltenham Festival’s top jockey.
Favourite Ruby Walsh is eased to 7/4 (from 6/4), while AP McCoy is 7/1 third favourite (from 6/1).
“With the powerful Henderson yard behind him, as well as stars such as Big Zeb to look forward to, it’s not surprising that Barry Geraghty has proved popular with punters today, and he could well replace his compatriot Ruby Walsh at the head of the betting before Tuesday’s opening race,” Coral‘s David Stevens told betrescue.com
