Find out how you can bet on the Champion Hurdle with William Hill!
GLOUCESTERSHIRE, UK - jockeys and bookies alike are gearing up for the Cheltenham Festival this coming March and as speculations of odds and wins make their way through the net, gamblers are lining up to bet on the Champion Hurdle with William Hill.
Kicking off the National Hunt season, the glitzy Champion Hurdle is expected to be the most dramatic race of the past 8 years with talk of a double win and a consecutive champion buzzing amid bookies and punters world round. Harry Fry, trainer to the stars and the man behind the success of last year's winning hurdler, is confident that Rock on Ruby will be victorious again claiming his year-long dedication and Ruby's mint condition as assurances to his forecast. While naysayers abound, as the clock ticks down to March and bookies vie for bets, wavering punters are flocking to bet on the Champion Hurdle with William Hill, placing their odds in his hands of Rock and Fry.
If forecasts are to be trusted and 2012 champ Rock on Ruby beats out the magnificent 2011 winner, Hurricane Fly, speculators putting their odds on Rock are in for an especially outstanding win. Indeed, Rock on Ruby's speculated second victory in a row will be the only back to back win seen in these parts since 2005 when famed horse Hardy Eustace beat out his competition two years consecutively.
And for those who look past the horse to the people who made it, look no further than a mysterious whiz kid and horse whisperer said to be behind Rock on Ruby's 2012 success. A talented albeit exceedingly young trainer named Harry Fry may just be the wild card that professional horse racing needed to ramp up its ratings. At 26 years of age and not yet holding a training license himself, Fry was nearly robbed of Rock on Ruby's sensational 2012 win, which would have been attributed to seasoned trainer Paul Nicholls, owner of the stables at Seaborough, Dorset. But as luck would have it, Nicholls praised Fry's outstanding abilities and convinced the lad to register for a proper training license. This year, with a magnificent win under his belt, Fry is teaming up with his winning horse again.
Details of Rock on Ruby's rider in the 2013 race have not be ironed out yet, but if Noel Fehily has anything to say about it, he will be both riding and winning this year's hurdle. Like him, forecasters are putting their money where last year's win is and making that bet on the Champion Hurdle at William Hill.
