Racing: Hob hopes

Click to follow
HOB GREEN, balloted out of the Wokingham Handicap at Royal Ascot, has been installed as joint favourite for the Bunbury Cup at Newmarket on Thursday. Lynda Ramsden's four-year-old, a leading fancy for the Ascot race, has since been beaten behind Castlerea Lad at Newcastle, but is bracketed by race sponsor Ladbrokes at 10-1 with Tawafij, a winner on that same Gosforth Park card.
