Horse Racing By Jon Ivan-Duke

Ibis Now Heads Lanzarote Betting

Ibis Du Rheu is the latest favourite for the William Hill Lanzarote Hurdle, with the sponsor making Paul Nicholls’ horse the 4-1 market leader (from 6-1), taking over from Unowhatimeanharry at the head of the betting. Harry Fry’s horse is next at 9-2, alongside Nicky Henderson’s Bivouac, who was strongly supported throughout Wednesday.

“It’s too close to call who might start as favourite, with Ibis Du Rheu, Bivouac and Unowhatimeanharry all popular with punters,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke. “It’s a very competitive race and it looks sure to be a thrilling renewal.”
