4/1 into as short as 5/2 as Arkle Chase favourite wins at Leopardstown
The Henry De Bromhead Cheltenham Festival favourite tops the market
Notebook’s impressive Leopardstown win has seen the seven-year-old grow stronger in the Cheltenham Festival ante-post markets. Following victory in the 2pm, Notebook has been cut from 4/1 into as short as 5/2 ahead of the Festival in just over a month.
Since the Leopardstown trial finished, a whopping 87% of bets have backed the De Bromhead-hope.
A non-runner in today’s clash, Fakir Doudairies is now 11/2 to win the Arkle, followed by Bapaume (12/1) and Cash Back (12/1), all of which were entered in the Dublin trial today.
Brewinupastorm (12) follows next, then comes Melon (14/1) and Global Citizen (16/1).
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson:
On a key Cheltenham trial day, Notebook has cemented himself as the favourite for the Arkle after a battling off Cash Back.
It remains to be seen whether he would have got the better of Fakir D’oudairies but you can only beat what is in front of you and he has done just that.”
