Coneygree and Saphir Du Rheu top Hennessy betting at 7-2

Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Coneygree and World Hurdle runner-up Saphir Du Rheu share favouritism at 7-2 with leading bookmaker Coral for the Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury on Saturday. 2012 winner Bobs Worth is available at 7-1 with the firm, as is Smad Place for trainer Alan King.

Elsewhere on Saturday, Irving tops the betting at 5-2 for the Fighting Fifth Hurdle following his success at the weekend at Haydock, Wicklow Brace is second best at 3-1 for the Newcastle feature with Coral and Identity Theft can be backed at 5-1.

“This looks to be a very strong renewal of the Hennessy Gold Cup with two Cheltenham Gold Cup winners in the field. Coneygree has been well backed since connections announced their horse is set to run at Newbury and he currently shares favouritism with the improving Saphir Du Rheu,” said Coral’s John Hill.
