Binocular and Punchestowns Head Betting For Cheltenham Festival Features

Saturday 20th December 2008

Champion Hurdle favourite Binocular 6/4 (from 3), strengthened his position at the head of the market with Stan James after a very impressive victory in the rescheduled Grade 2 Boylesports.com International Hurdle at Ascot on Saturday. Celestial Halo set the pace before finishing second and has also been cut to 16/1 (from 20). The third, Chomba Womba remains unchanged at 20/1 while Cheltenham specialist Katchit has been eased to 10/1 (from 9) and finally, the last home, Crack Away Jack is now 8/1 (from 6).

Trainer Nicky Henderson's good form continued in the Grade 1 BGC Long Walk Hurdle where the trainer saddled the first two home, with Punchestowns 7/4 (from 5) for the Ladbroke World Hurdle running out a very convincing winner from Duc De Regniere 8/1 (from 6). The pair are split in the ante-post market by former favourite Kasbah Bliss, who is now 11/4 (from 9/4).
