Punters give thumbs up to Pendleton’s Foxhunters bid

Bookmaker Coral has cut Pacha Du Polder to 16-1 (from 20-1) for the Cheltenham Foxhunters, after the likely mount of former Olympic cyclist Victoria Pendleton was the subject of support for the Festival contest today.

“Although the final decision has yet to be made on Victoria Pendleton’s participation at Cheltenham, her victory on board Pacha Du Polder at Wincanton seems to have gone down well with punters, with her equine partner attracting support for the Foxhunters,” said Coral’s David Stevens.

Pendleton is 6-4 to complete the course, and 8-1 with Coral to finish in the first three, with bets void on these markets if she does not take part.
