TENOR BEST-BACKED TO SCOOP THE CAVIAR

William Hill can report the best-backed horse in the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup is Tenor Nivernais, but overall the company has taken a good spread of money ahead of Saturday’s feature handicap chase.

“Tenor Nivernais is the best-backed horse for the big race on Saturday but only by a whisker,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke. “It is a very competitive race and a real puzzle for punters to solve.”

Meanwhile, in the International Hurdle, Peace And Co is all the rage with fans backing Nicky Henderson’s Cheltenham Festival winner in from 11-10 to 10-11 with William Hill.

“Peace And Co is a very popular horse after his Triumph Hurdle win and punters are backing him strongly to scoop the Saturday spoils.”
