Horse Racing Cheltenham Festival By Jon Ivan-Duke

Hill Cut By Hill For Cheltenham

Josses Hill is now 20-1 from 50-1 with William Hill for the Ryanair Chase and 25-1 from 33-1 with the same bookmaker for the Queen Mother Champion Chase.

It follows his victory in the Graduation Chase at Kempton, beating God’s Own by eight lengths.

“Josses Hill is still an outsider for Cheltenham’s chases but he’s creeping in to contention, with the Ryanair looking a very open race if Vautour goes for the Gold Cup instead,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
