Odds

Last year’s edition of Jump Sunday was mostly a case of race favourites getting the job done, although the biggest upset was in The Racing TV Novices’ Hurdle where 15/2 priced Mrs Hyde finished in first place and converted £10 outright backing stakes into £85 in returns, £75 in profits.

The highest price seen on Jump Sunday last October was also in race 3, The Racing TV Novices’ Hurdle, and that was Gorham’s Cave’s starting price at a whopping 250/1.
