Seven horses have stood their ground to battle for Huntingdon Racecourse’s biggest prize.
A classy cast will go to post at 2pm tomorrow (Sunday) for the Betfred Peterborough Chase.
Josses Hill, for trainer Nicky Henderson and jockey Noel Fehily, is likely to go off favourite for the Grade 2 contest over a trip just short of two-and-a-half miles.
Henderson is double-handed with 8/1 shot Volnay De Thaix also taking its chance. Champion trainer Paul Nicholls is responsible for two of the other runners with former Queen Mother Champion Chase winner Dodging Bullets (ridden by Sam Twiston-Davies) and Art Maresque (Nick Scholfield) lining up.
More Of That, a former World Hurdle winner who is rated as a Gold Cup contender by his trainer Jonjo O’Neill, also features in the select field along with Tea For Two, a Nick Williams-trained horse ridden by history-making Lizzie Kelly.
