Ladbrokes Offer Non Runner No Bet On World Hurdle


Tagged under: 3.20 Ladbrokes World Hurdle 3m (Grade1)

Following Big Bucks impressive win in the Sportingbet Long Distance Hurdle at Newbury yesterday Ladbrokes have decided to offer non runner no bet on the World Hurdle to be ran at the Cheltenham Festival in March .

Big Bucks was winning for the 13th consecutive time over hurdles and afterwards both trainer Paul Nicholls and jockey Ruby Walsh were in jubilant mood with Walsh quipping"He's better than any pension at the moment isn't he?".

Big Bucks was the shortest price of his career yesterday but backers at 1/8 never had to worry as he won by five lengths with consumate ease .

Big Bucks has won the last three runnings of the World Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival and will next be aimed at the Long Walk hurdle at Ascot in December which he has won for the past two years .

Trainer Nicholl's commented yesterday " "He's(Big Bucks) got more speed than the rest, he stays better than the rest and he's just better than the rest, it's as simple as that."

Ladbrokes offer of 4/5 for Big Bucks for the World Hurdle is pretty generous given the non runner no bet concession . Some bookmakers are quoting odds of 4/7 for Big Bucks to win the race without the concession whilst the absolute top price currently is 5/6 from Sportingbet but this is all in run or not .

Don't expect Big Bucks to be 4/5 on the day of the race , Thursday 15th March 2012, Nicholls is expert at getting his horses to the course in peak form and Big Bucks is already beginning to look like the banker of the meeting .
