Tidal Bay backed to give Nicholls and Walsh more big race success

| 06.02.2014

Tidal Bay is 3-1 (from 4-1) second favourite with Coral for Sunday’s Irish Hennessy Gold Cup, following sustained support for the former Lexus Chase winner today. First Lieutenant remains favourite but is eased to 2-1 (from 13-8), while Last Instalment is also easy to back and is out to 4-1 (from 7-2).

“Punters have profited from the Paul Nicholls and Ruby Walsh partnership over the years, and with the old allies joining forces once again, and with Tidal Bay a proven Grade One winner at Leopardstown, the 13-y-o could well be sent off favourite on Sunday,” reckoned Coral’s David Stevens.
