Paul Nicholls stands on the cusp of another Trainers' Championship title following a great weekend that included Scottish National glory at Ayr...
"The Betfair Sportsbook makes Nicholls, nine times the champion in the last 10 years, the 8/11 favourite to end the season top of the pile once again."
A super Saturday in Scotland has hauled Paul Nicholls back in front of Willie Mullins in the British Trainers' Championship and set up an exciting finale at Sandown next weekend.
Four wins on the Ayr card, including Vicente who landed the £120,000 first prize in the Scottish National, have taken the Betfair Ambassador £30,000 clear of Mullins. And Paul subsequently franked Saturday's good form with four winners from four runners on today's card at Wincanton.
Now the Betfair Sportsbook makes Nicholls, nine times the champion in the last 10 years, the 8/11 favourite to end the season top of the pile once again. Mullins can be backed at even money.
There is good money available in the week at Perth and then huge prizes to be landed at Sandown on Saturday. You can, of course, read about Paul's entries for Sandown on these very pages.
