Cheltenham Festival Horse Racing

William Hill Fear Gruesome Twosome

Vautour is a popular favourite for the Ryanair Chase with William Hill, with punters switching their attentions to the horse after he was diverted from the Gold Cup.

“While there were doubts about the Gold Cup trip for Vautour, there are no such concerns in the Ryanair Chase and he will be one of the hottest favourites of the week,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

Thistlecrack has been well-backed for the World Hurdle in the antepost book and William Hill expect more of the same on the day.

“Punters have been throwing Thistlecrack in to many of their accumulators for the Festival and we’re not particularly confident of getting him beaten,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
