Thistlecrack Odds On For Cleeve

Thistlecrack is the 8-11 favourite with William Hill for the Cleeve Hurdle. He comes in to the race in great form after winning the Grade 1 JLT Long Walk Hurdle at Ascot last time out.

However, Camping Ground could be a danger having won the Relkeel Hurdle at Cheltenham last time.

“With Camping Ground pitching up, Thistlecrack will have to be at his best to justify his odds,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
