Coral to refund ante post bets on The Tullow Tank as Festival is ruled out

Coral are to refund all ante-post bets struck on The Tullow Tank for either the Supreme Novices’ or the Neptune Novices’ Hurdle, for which he had been the well-backed 8-1 third favourite, after the six-year-old’s owner Barry Connell said his star novice would not run at next month’s Festival.

“The Tullow Tank had been particularly well-backed for the Neptune Novices’ Hurdle following his two Grade One wins this season, but given the unique circumstances surrounding his absence from the Festival, we are happy to refund stakes on this occasion,” said Coral’s David Stevens.

Coral has also opened betting on several Cheltenham Festival handicaps today, including the Coral Cup, for which Champagne West and Sure Reef are the 12-1 joint favourites, while Bury Parade heads their betting for Saturday’s Betbright Chase, following the final declarations for the Kempton Grade 3.
