Allez Colombieres On The Drift In Royal Bond

Since pricing up the Royal Bond Hurdle on Tuesday, we can report that punters are getting behind the Willie Mullins-trained Nichols Canyon.

Initially installed at 9/2, the recent Cork winner is now priced at 9/4 to land Sunday’s Grade 1 race at Fairyhouse.

With conditions set to be testing at Fairyhouse on Sunday, punters have latched onto Nichols Canyon as the former John Gosden trained son of Authorized wins have all come on soft ground.

As a result, stable mate Allez Colombieres has been eased out to 6/4 from 4/5 whilst the Gordon Elliott-trained No More Heroes is priced at 2/1.

It’s then 12/1 for the Dermot Weld-trained Tandem with the UK entry, Otago Trail, priced at 14/1 to follow up his recent Carlisle win for trainer Venetia Williams.
