DENMAN SHORTENS AS TWENTY LEFT IN HENNESSY




Denman heads twenty horses that have been left in the Hennessy Gold Cup at the latest forfeit stage and totesport have shortened him slightly at the head of the market at 7/2 (from 4/1).


Champion trainer Paul Nicholls has also left in Neptune Collonges, Taranis, The Tother One and Niche Market but it is Weird Al who is likely to be Denman’s main rival in the market and Ian Williams’ gelding is currently a 5/1 shot.


‘After big-race victories for Kauto Star and Imperial Commander in recent weeks, the spotlight is now on Denman as he aims to win the Hennessy for an historic third time and we’re bracing ourselves for a wholesale gamble similar to the one seen twelve months ago,’ said totesport spokesman George Primarolo.


A total of seven horses have been entered for Saturday’s Stan James Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle and totesport make reigning Champion Hurdler Binocular the 5/6 favourite.


The race will also see the much-anticipated return of Peddlers Cross who is next in the market at 7/2. Starluck is an 11/2 shot with Nearby next at 12/1.


Over at Kempton, Bobs Worth made a successful hurdling debut for Nicky Henderson in the EBF ‘National Hunt’ Novice Hurdle this afternoon and has been introduced at 25/1 by totesport for the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle.
