Ruby Walsh betting odds
Being the stable jockey to top trainer Paul Nicholls and also taking the mounts on some of the best rides for leading Irish trainer Willie Mullins means that Ruby Walsh is never short of leading contenders for the biggest races. Therefore, following Ruby Walsh odds could be a highly productive strategy for punters, although the prices of his runners will not always be the best.
Ruby Walsh odds sure to be popular in the Cheltenham Festival betting
The quality of the horses that he gets the opportunity to ride and his own high skill level can be shown by his success at the annual Cheltenham Festival in March. Since 2004, Walsh has only not scooped Cheltenham top jockey honours on two occasions and the seven winners he rode in 2007 remains a record for the Cheltenham Festival.
Taking Ruby Walsh odds to be top jockey at the next Cheltenham Festival could again prove lucrative as the early markets show that he has another solid batch of leading contenders. These will obviously be led by Big Buck’s in the Ladbrokes World Hurdle odds and Quevega in the David Nicholson Mares’ Hurdle, with both horses looking to add to their multiple victories in their respective races.
Other horses that are liable to ridden by Walsh at Cheltenham and will have massive chances of victory at Cheltenham include Hurricane Fly in the Champion Hurdle, Master Minded and Al Ferov. However, Ruby Walsh odds should be considered for races up and down the country and not just Cheltenham, with Taunton and Sandown being among his favoured destinations to ride winners.
