Houblon Hammers Opposition

Houblon Des Obeaux put in a great round of jumping to win the Denman Chase and is now 33-1 from 50-1 to win the Grand National with William Hill.


“He jumps, he stays and he is the right sort of age, so Houblon Des Obeaux could be a live contender for the Grand National,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
