Bobs Worth is 5-1 (from 7-1) co-favourite with Coral for the Cheltenham Gold Cup, following his victory in the Hennessy Gold Cup. Sir Des Champs and Silviniaco Conti are the other market leaders, while Bobs Worth trainer, Nicky Henderson, is 4-7 (from 8-13) for the NH Trainers’ championship, ahead of Paul Nicholls at 5-4 (from 6-5).
“Bobs Worth justified Hennessy favouritism in good style to join Sir Des Champs and Silvinaco Conti at the head of the Gold Cup betting, while his victory also stemmed the tide of big Saturday winners for Paul Nicholls, and saw Nicky Henderson’s title odds trimmed for the first time in several weeks,” Coral’s David Stevens told betrescue.com
An earlier winner at Newbury, Big Bucks, is 4-5 (from evens) with Coral for the Ladbrokes World Hurdle, while Newcastle winner, Countrywide Flame, is 10-1 (from 25-1) for the Champion Hurdle.
