Melon A Well Backed Starter For Punters At Cheltenham

Supreme Novices' Hurdle

Outright Betting

We can report further support for Sunday’s Donohue Marquees Maiden Hurdle winner Melon in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle.

The son of Medicean was cut into 9/2 from 10/1 following his win on Sunday and after no sign of the support drying up,

he is now the 4/1 favourite to get punters off to the perfect start at the Cheltenham Festival.

Our traders are now running scared at what Melon could potentially cost us should he manage to win the Supreme. He had already been a large liability in the antepost book prior to his racecourse debut and this has now doubled and continues to rise at an alarming rate.

His nearest rival in the betting is the David Pipe trained Moon Racer at 6/1.
