Will Tizzard Thrill With Big Race Double?

With Thistlecrack & Cue Card, Colin Tizzard has two major festival fancies and William Hill are offering 16/1 that they deliver the World Hurdle & Gold Cup double.

“Thistlecrack is one of the best backed horses in the festival book and should he win then we will almost certainly see a move for Cue Card in the big one,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
