Cheltenham hope Tombstone slashed for County Hurdle

| 02.03.2017

Coral has cut Tombstone to 8-1 co-favourite (from 14-1) for the County Hurdle, after sustained support for the Gigginstown Stud-owned hurdler today.

“The money we’ve seen for Tombstone in the County Hurdle market today strongly suggests that race – rather than the Coral Cup or Champion Hurdle – is his most likely Festival target now, after connections gave a rare thumbs-up to the handicapper’s weight allocation,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
