Big Buck’s eased for World Hurdle after narrow comeback defeat


Coral has eased Big Buck’s to 9-4 favourite (from 7-4) for the Ladbrokes World Hurdle, after the four-time winner of the race was beaten on his comeback run in today’s Cleeve Hurdle. Annie Power is the 3-1 second favourite for the three mile championship, while the mare is also 6-1 (from 8-1) for the Champion Hurdle following her victory at Doncaster.

“Third place on his comeback run means Big Buck’s still heads the betting for a fifth World Hurdle, but as far as we’re concerned he does have slightly more to prove now and we’re happy to lengthen his odds,” said Coral’s David Stevens.

“As for Annie Power, although we’re none the wiser as to her Festival target, what is certain is she will be prominent in the betting wherever she runs,” added Stevens.
