Racing: Punters have a Suny outlook in the Hennessy Gold Cup
Wednesday 26 November 1997
Walter Dennis, who trains Coome Hill, said yesterday: "The vet thinks it would all right if I worked the horse tomorrow and then I'll have to make up my mind. As for Saturday, my worry is that I haven't been able to do enough with him and with only three days left I might be running out of time. I don't want to to run the horse if he's not 100 per cent."
As well as Suny Bay hardening as favourite, Hills cut Trying Again to 8-1 from 10-1, although the nine-year-old has in the past shown a preference for right-handed tracks.
The Irish-trained Time For A Run, who had a warm-up race over an inadequate trip at Naas on 8 November, is now into 6-1 (from 8-1) with Ladbrokes.
