Yorkhill Shortens For JLT Novices’ Chase
JLT Novices' Chase
With less than six weeks to go until the start of the 2017 Cheltenham Festival, the antepost markets are starting to liven up.
With Buveur D’Air likely to be aimed at a tilt at the Champion Hurdle over the smaller obstacles we have seen sustained support for Yorkhill in the JLT,
resulting in the Willie Mullins trained son of Presenting being cut further into 11/8 from 13/8.
Harry Fry’s Neon Wolf continues to prove popular with punters despite the trainer stating that he might not run at the festival. However punters believe that he will make the trip to Prestbury Park as he is now 6/1 from 7/1 for the Neptune with Finian’s Oscar the only one ahead of him in the betting now at 4/1.
Altior has been cut into 8/11 from 4/5 for the Arkle Chase whilst the Mouse Morris-trained Alpha Des Obeaux is now 14/1 from 16/1 for the RSA Chase.
