Melon cut to 9/4 for Saturday’s International Hurdle

| 15.12.2017

Willie Mullins-trained horse is second-favourite

Melon is closing in on International Hurdle favourite The New One in the betting for Saturday’s feature race.

Willie Mullins’ Faugheen is now 9/4 (was 10/3) second-favourite in the two-mile hurdling realm at Cheltenham.

The New One is aiming for a fourth win in this race at 6/4.

In third place, My Tent or Yours has also been eased out to 4/1 (was 7/2).

Coral’s David Stevens said: “Although Melon was unable to justify Supreme favouritism last March, that was just his second start over hurdles. And punters are clearly hoping for a big run this weekend, when the five-year-old could even replace old favourite The New One at the head of the International betting.”
