Will it be in this the Diamond Jubilee year that Her Majesty has a festival winner? Ex-top class Henderson trained Barbers Shop runs later today at Fontwell on his way to the Foxhunters on Gold Cup day. Today he is 8/15 to brush aside his rivals but his longer odds for the festival (14/1 with the magic sign and Hills) might tumble if he impresses in the Whitelaw Challenge Cup later. A small each way investment was made earlier at that attractive price of 14/1 – even if there is Chapoturgeon to worry about when they come up the Cheltenham hill. It could be a poorly placed sentiment or we could all be singing home a royal winner in March – it will look obvious if it happens.
