Warwick Winner Vibrato Trimmed For Arkle

Vibrato Valtat gave Paul Nicholls’ a reason to smile on Saturday, with a strong performance in the Kingmaker Novices’ Chase at Warwick. William Hill have reacted to the winning performance by making Vibrato Valtat 6-1 from 10-1 for the Racing Post Arkle Trophy.


“The betting market for the Arkle is dominated by Un De Sceaux and there is plenty of value on other horses at bigger odds as a result,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.


Earlier on the card at Warwick, Arbre De Vie earned quotes from William Hill of 16-1 from 25-1 for both the Neptune Novices’ Hurdle and Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle, after he landed the 2m5f novices’ hurdle in taking fashion.


Cogry just held on from Doing Fine in the 3m2f novices’ chase. William Hill make the winner 20-1 from 25-1 for the Toby Balding National Hunt Chase and 33-1 from 50-1 for the RSA Chase. Doing Fine stayed on strongly for second and is 25-1 from 50-1 for the National Hunt Chase.
