Hurricane Fly (70.83%)
Oscars Well (1.67%)
Rock on Ruby (6.67%)
Other (please specify) (4.17%)
Think that would probably about the right price.
Wow, serious? VC are 4/6!!!
Hurricane Fly will be odds against the day of the race anyway.
Good to see the battle for turnover is alive & well. I rarely bet much NRNB unless I really see something over priced (usually in the handicaps). The likes of Somersby in the Ryanair or Boston Bob in whichever race he runs in won't be much shorter if at all on the day.
Well at least when plans are known
but as I learned the hard way, any horse is beatable.
back in 2003, the day after the gold cup I did 6 cross-trebles for the 2004 festival with 3 horses in the hurdle (only Rooster Booster lined up), Azertyioup and Moscow in the QM & Best Mate in the GC.
was almost already planning how to spend my winnings (decent 4 figure sum), only for a 33/1 shot called Hardy Eustace to come along and spoil everything.
I reckon he will be as well but I think 5/4 is worry taking at this stage. He's not going to go much bigger that 5/4 anyway.
Arbers already off & running on Betfair. HF now 2.0 to lay. Was less than 1.9 earlier.
Still if you could lay him for a chunk at evs & get on at 5/4 you'd have a nice arb paying 3.5% ish for 8 days
Maybe just a bit....
Wills (William Hills like Jedward ) are BOG so may aswell take the 5/4.
Not on ante post bets hucklebuck
That 5/4 will not last long 2mo me thinks, it will be hoovered up & gone by lunch time if it doesn't fair play to Hills.....I think Hurricane Fly arrives all well at the festival & if Sprinter Sacre bolts in like most are suggesting then Hurricane Fly will go off odds on 4/5....
As good a special it is I think waiting and backing him on the day with the Boyles special would still be the better option.
I wouldnt want to do it that way round though in case you can't get the bet on with Hills
