Johns Spirit is the 11-2 favourite with William Hill for the Stewart Family Thank You Gold Cup on Saturday after news that Home Farm will miss the race after a dirty scope. Home Farm had been fairly popular for the race and was a 9-1 chance before his removal from the betting. Trainer Arthur Moore says it is likely he will now head to Leopardstown over Christmas.
At larger odds of reward there’s been growing support for Attaglance who has shortened to 8-1 from 10-1 with William Hill, but Johns Spirit remains the best backed horse at this stage supported in from 6-1 to 11-2 on the back of news about Home Farm.
“Johns Spirit is the most popular horse in the book, but Attaglance has strong supporters too,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
