For Non Stop Assigned Feather Weight in Coral Cup


One of the most wide-open races on day two of the 2011 Cheltenham Festival just got a lot more interesting now that one of the biggest early gambles for the four-day steeplechasing showpiece has been assigned a very favourable weight handicap.

The Coral Cup runs at 4:00 at Cheltenham on the Wednesday card and the popular contender For Non Stop, a six year-old son of Alderbrook, has been bet down from 14/1 to 8/1 now that he’s been assigned a feather weight of 10st 2lb should be manage to line up in the 27 horse field.

There is £70,000 up for grabs in this one and the race could prove popular. Currently, 65 entries are due to carry more weight than For Non Stop, and he will have to rely on a number of withdrawals to gain entry on day two.

While technically being considered the favourite to win, For Non Stop’s support may be forced into retreat if a number of other contenders decide to line up. The likes of Michael Flips, Oscar Dan Dan and Voy Por Ustedes remain entered.

A few other steamers resulted of the weight handicaps being released and one of the most pronounced was Ackertac who dropped from 66/1 to 25/1 with most major bookmakers. Gift of Dgab halved in price from 50/1 down to 25/1. Sir Des Champs gained support as well with a 25/1 dropping to 16/1.
