In an exciting development, leading National Hunt jockey Harry Cobden has joined Planet Sport Bet, the sportsbook arm of UK's prominent independent sports media group, Planet Sport, as its new horse racing brand ambassador.
The 18-time Grade 1 winner is set to share exclusive insights throughout the 2023/24 National Hunt season.
Cobden, the stable jockey to 14-time Champion Trainer Paul Nicholls, brings a wealth of experience to his new role. He is slated to provide a weekly written blog, engaging video content, and active participation on social media, offering fans a unique perspective into his rides.
Additionally, Cobden will lend his expertise in daily analysis during the major spring festivals at Cheltenham, Aintree, and Punchestown.
With a lineup of notable rides including Bravemansgame, Stage Star, Stay Away Fay, and Captain Teague for the season, the 25-year-old joins the distinguished group of brand ambassadors at Planet Sport Bet, alongside former Premier League footballer Robbie Savage and TV presenter Emma Jones.
Mike Grenham, MD, Betting at Planet Sport, expressed enthusiasm about the signing, stating, "We are delighted to have signed Harry as our horse racing brand ambassador for the 2023/24 National Hunt season. He is one of the top jump jockeys around, and it’s fantastic that he will be able to offer his thoughts on some of the best horses exclusively to our customers."
Harry Cobden himself is excited about the partnership, commenting, "I’m really looking forward to getting started with Planet Sport Bet. It might be a relatively new sportsbook, but I’ve been really impressed with what they’ve done so far and what better place to kick things off than at Cheltenham for the November Meeting!"
As the National Hunt season kicks into high gear, the collaboration promises an exciting few months ahead for both Harry Cobden and Planet Sport Bet.
