Hills 7/1 For Tolworth + Cheltenham Double
William Hill offer odds of 7-1 for this year’s Tolworth Hurdle winner to go on and win at the 2017 Cheltenham Festival.
Two horses dominate the market, with Capitaine the 5-4 favourite and Finian’s Oscar next in at 7-4.
Capitaine represents Paul Nicholls who has won the race three times from the past nine renewals, while Colin Tizzard has been bullish about Finian’s Oscar who he describes as the best novice hurdler in his yard.
“Capitaine is a promising horse but if Colin Tizzard is right then Finian’s Oscar might win the Tolworth and go on to even bigger things at Cheltenham,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
In the Veterans’ Handicap Chase, Dynaste is the 7-1 favourite with William Hill. He has been backed in from 12-1 at the start of the week and is easily the best supported horse.
“It’s all about Dynaste in the Veterans’ race. He represents last year’s winning trainer David Pipe, he’s incredibly well-handicapped, the ground and trip are in his favour and he has been solidly supported all week. He ticks all the boxes,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
