Top Notch Trimmed for Truimph

Top Notch is now 14-1 from 16-1 with William Hill for the Triumph Hurdle after landing the Sodexo Juvenile Hurdle at Ascot on Saturday. Pulling clear of a battling Golden Doyen in the closing stages, Nicky Henderson’s gelding showed enough ability to stride clear after the final flight.


Top Notch has also been trimmed for the Betfair Hurdle to 12-1 from 14-1.


“Simon Munir and Isaac Souede have a tremendous hand for the juvenile races at the Festival and it would be no surprise to see a winner in their silks,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.


William Hill have trimmed the odds on the pair owning the Triumph winner to 7-4 from 2-1.
