First Fence Fallers

A bet which will be all over after the first fence! Hopefully your win bet wont be!

Recommended bookmaker BetVictor have added the following market regarding fallers at the first fence for 2018:
All runners to jump the first fence 7/4



The fast pace the runners travel to the first fence often results in fallers.
1998, 2000 and 2006 saw five fallers and 2002 saw nine fallers
2013 saw no first fence fallers
2014 saw one faller at the first fence
2015 saw three first fence fallers
2016 saw one faller at the first fence
2017 saw two fallers at the first fence
Very hard to predict of course but lets hope for no first fence fallers.
