Bobs Worth is the 3-1 favourite with Coral for Saturday’s Hennessy Gold Cup, following the latest entry stage for the Newbury showpiece. Recent Wincanton winner, The Package, is the 7-1 second favourite, ahead of Hold On Julio and Tidal Bay, both 8-1.
“Nicky Henderson was denied a big race success when his Long Run was beaten by the Paul Nicholls trained Silviniaco Conti at Haydock on Saturday, and although the latter’s Tidal Bay has been backed from 10-1 into 8-1 for the Hennessy, Henderson’s Bobs Worth is sure to start favourite at Newbury as he bids to close the gap on the championship leader,” Coral’s David Stevens told betrescue.com
Switching codes, Sea Moon and Dunaden are the 7-2 joint favourites with Coral for the Hong Kong Vase, after the John Gosden-trained The Fugue was scratched from the Sha Tin contest, along with Luca Cumani’s Mount Athos.
