Paul Nicholls 5-2 to regain National Hunt Trainers’ title

Paul Nicholls, currently leading the National Hunt trainers’ standings, is 5-2 with Coral to regain the crown he lost to Nicky Henderson last season. Henderson is 1-3 to successfully defend his title, with Jonjo O’Neill the only other trainer quoted at 25-1.

“Nicky Henderson was 1-8 to retain his title at the start of the season, but as we approach the busy and richly-endowed Christmas period, he trails both Paul Nicholls and Jonjo O’Neill, with the former down to 5-2 from an opening 9-2,” said Coral’s David Stevens.

Elsewhere, former Champion hurdler Rock On Ruby is 16-1 for the Racing Post Arkle ahead of a possible chase debut at Plumpton on Monday, while Home Farm is 10-1 (from 12-1) for the Stewart Family Thank You Gold Cup, while Highland Lodge is the same price for the Coral Welsh National.
