Djakadam Clear Fav For The Hennessy
Hennessy Gold Cup
23 runners remain in Saturday’s Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury with the Willie Mullins trained, Djakadam heading the betting at 7/2.
His nearest rival in the betting is the Oliver Sherwood trained Many Clouds who is 13/2 to follow up his recent Carlisle victory.
Since we introduced NRMB on the race over two weeks ago we have been flooded with bets on Djakadam. He now is by far the biggest loser in the ante-post book having been supported down to 7/2 from 10/1.
It’s then 7/1 for the inform Philip Hobbs and Richard Johnson team of Fingal Bay.
Paul Nicholls who saddles Rocky Creek is now 9/1 from 10/1 to give the trainer a fourth victory in this prestigious race.
