According to William Hill, Maughreen, a mare with lineage connected to the renowned Faugheen, has emerged as one of their least favorable outcomes for the Cheltenham Festival. Originally priced at 20/1 for the Champion Bumper in Willie Mullins' stable, Maughreen's odds were shortened to 12/1 following a commanding victory at Punchestown on January 15. The impressive performance has garnered substantial support from punters, resulting in Maughreen's odds being further reduced to 6/1 for success at the Cheltenham Festival.

William Hill also notes that another contender for the Champion Bumper, Romeo Coolio, currently holds the undesirable position as their most unfavorable outcome. Additionally, Chantry House (Pertemps), Sir Gino (Triumph Hurdle), and Bravemansgame (Gold Cup) are reported to be causing notable financial setbacks for the bookmaker.

William Hill's Lee Phelps said: “We’ve seen a very good spread of business in the ante-post Cheltenham markets, with the recent abandonments likely to have played a part. In fact, Monday was the second busiest day in terms of number of active customers since we went non-runner no bet on all 28 Festival races.
