Unowhatimeanharry 5-1 For World Hurdle

Unowhatimeanharry is 5-1 second favourite with William Hill for the World Hurdle after winning the Long Distance Hurdle at Newbury.

“JP McManus is a very clever man and he has made a shrewd purchase in acquiring Unowhatimeanharry, who could be a force to be reckoned with,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

“Unowhatimeanharry was very well backed, shortening from 13-2 in the morning to 7-2 at ‘the off’ and once again a JP horse has cost us a pretty penny, or £200,000 to be more precise.”

Unowhatimeanharry is only behind Faugheen (4-1) in William Hill’s World Hurdle market, although what Willie Mullins decides to do with his plethora of top horses is anyone’s guess.

World Hurdle: 4-1 Faugheen, 5-1 Unowhatimeanharry, 6-1 Nichols Canyon, 8-1 Yanworth, 14-1 Jezki, Shaneshill, Snow Falcon, 16-1 Ballyoptic, Lil Rockerfeller, One Track Mind, 20-1 Ptit Zig, 25-1 BAR (EW 1/5 Odds Places 1,2,3)
