Outright Betting

Nicky Henderson opened up his Seven Barrows stables to the media on Wednesday morning and we can report significant support for him to be Top Trainer at the Cheltenham Festival.

Henderson is now 11/4 from 7/2 to dethrone Willie Mullins who has been eased to 4/7 from 2/5 as a result.

We have priced up how many winners the Upper Lambourn native will have at the Festival with exactly two currently priced at 6/4, three is next in the betting at 7/4 with one winner priced at 5/2.

Four or more winners for Henderson at the festival is priced at 7/1 whilst it’s 8/1 for him to draw a blank and not saddle a winner over the week at Prestbury Park.

Henderson trains the red-hot favourite Altior for the Arkle on the opening day of the Festival…

…and we make it 20/1 that he will train the winner of the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, Champion Hurdle and the Arkle on the opening day.
