To Win Annie Race At The Festival?

Annie Power is set for her first start of the season at Punchestown, with her likely Cheltenham Festival target still up in the air. William Hill offer 8-13 that she wins ANY race at the 2016 Cheltenham Festival.

Annie Power is 4-5 favourite with William Hill to win the OLBG Mares’ Hurdle, while she is 7-2 to win the World Hurdle.

“Annie Power is odds-on to win any race at this year’s Cheltenham Festival, but she has a lot to prove and the betting could change markedly if she suffered a shock defeat at Punchestown,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
