Vautour 4-5 for Ryanair success after Gold Cup switch

| 15.03.2016

Vautour is 4-5 favourite with Coral for Thursday’s Ryanair Chase, after the long time leading Gold Cup hope was switched to the shorter contest at today’s declaration stage.

As a result of the late switch, Don Cossack is now 3-1 favourite with Coral for Friday’s Gold Cup, ahead of Djakadam at 7-2.

“The decision to switch Vautour to the Ryanair Chase over the Gold Cup will have come as a blow to plenty of ante-post punters, both those that backed him for the latter race after connections stated he would either run in the Gold Cup or not run at the Festival at all, and those who backed something in the Ryanair Chase on the basis that Vautour would not be among the opposition,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
