Dedigout cut as Mullins pair drift for Grade 1

WILLIE MULLINS is likely to be in the winner's enclosure a few times at Punchestown this week, but his two runners in Tuesday's Grade 1 Growise Champion Novice Chase have been easy to back with Dedigout being supported.

The Mullins-trained Back In Focus, winner of the National Hunt Chase at the Cheltenham Festival, had been the general 3-1 overnight favourite for the 3m1f contest at 6.40.

However, 7-2 is now widely available, while stablemate Boston Bob, who fell when going well in the RSA Chase at Cheltenham, is also weak.

Only William Hill went 4-1 about him, but they've been joined by Boylesports, BetVictor, Paddy Power, Ladbrokes and Coral.

Dedigout, trained by Tony Martin for Gigginstown House Stud, is the mover. BetVictor are 5-1 (from 7), while Coral go the same price from 13-2. Boylesports, who were also 13-2, are now 9-2.

Sprinter Sacre is the star name running at Punchestown on Tuesday and 1-7 is still available about him making it ten races unbeaten over fences in the Boylesports.com Champion Chase (5.30).

The other Grade 1 on the card is the Herald Champion Novice Hurdle at 4.20.

Champagne Fever is a solid 11-8 favourite to confirm Cheltenham form with Jezki, whom he beat into third in the Supreme. BetVictor offer a best-priced 2-1 about Jezki.
