Field of 35 remain in Hennessy

Bobs Worth heads the betting for Newbury's Hennessy Cognac Gold Cup after a field of 35 stood their ground at the latest entry stage.

Last year's RSA Chase winner is the 5/1 market leader with Sky Bet, ahead of The Package (8/1) and Hold On Julio (10/1).

Among those taken out at the forfeit stage were Grands Crus, who trainer David Pipe announced on Monday was to be given a wind operation, Join Together, Ace High and Giles Cross.

Tidal Bay and Burton Port remain as joint top-weights with 11-12, with Tidal Bay's trainer Paul Nicholls also leaving Michel Le Bon and Harry The Viking in the 150,000 contest.
