Sanctuaire 6/1 For Greatwood Glory.

William Hill

Tagged under: 2 The Open Meeting

25 Horses have been declared for Sunday's Greatwood Handicap Hurdle at the latest confirmation stage, with the Paul Nicholl's trained Sanctuaire heading the betting at a top price 6/1 with Coral.

Anyone looking for a speculative value bet for the 2011 Champion Hurdle could do worse than the 33/1 on offer about the 2010 Fred Winter Juvenile Handicap Hurdle winner.

That price is currently available with Stan James, Coral and William Hill, who are offering new phone and online customers a free bet of up to £60, but those odds could disappear fast if the French bred 4-year-old wins Sunday's competitive contest at Cheltenham.

Possibly the easiest winner at the Cheltenham Festival when beating Notus De La Tour by a long looking 9 length, the Kendor gelding later disappointed at Aintree when, according to the trainer, was " a bit over the top and much too free."

Nicholl's recently described Sanctuaire as an " amazing horse " and claims he has " grown up mentally and physically; he does what we want now and all in all seems a different horse..

" If he can relate that to the racetrack, the sky's the limit."

Should Sanctuaire run a big race at the weekend, the plan is then to step up in class for a possible return visit to Cheltenham for the Bula Hurdle in December.

If the horse fulfils his trainers' expectations and proves up to his early season targets that 33/1 currently available will look very big come next March.
