Nicholls Rallies In Trainers' Championship!

Paul Nicholls was 5-1 with William Hill to win the National Hunt Trainers’ Championship at the start of Saturday – he’s now 4-6 after his triumph in the Scottish Grand National with Vicente.


Willie Mullins started the weekend as the 1-10 favourite to win the Trainers’ Title – he’s now 11-10.


“All bookmakers are aware it is a dangerous game to ever write off Paul Nicholls and he’s shown just why he is a true Champion,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke. “Nicholls has gone from an outside chance to odds-on.”


Meanwhile, the Scottish National winner Vicente is 33-1 to win next year’s Aintree Grand National with William Hill.
