Saphir Du Rheu was joint favourite with Coneygree. He is now clear favourite at a Top Price of 7-2 with BetPack. He looks to become the 9th winner to defy top-weight.
Bobs Worth is looking to become the 4th horse to win the race more than once, having been victorious in 2012 en route to Cheltenham Gold Cup success in 2013. He starts at 6-1.
Last years winner Many Clouds became the first horse to win the Hennessy and go on to win the Grand National the next year. However, the Oliver Sherwood trained horse will not be in Newbury to defend the title.
