Early Money Results In Two New Favourites
There has been plenty of movement in the first 24 hours of William Hill’s ‘who will replace Adam Smith on the BOE £20 note’ with early 8/1 favourite LS Lowry, being demoted to 10/1 and overtaken by both JMW Turner and William Blake who now share the top of the betting market at 8/1.
Barbara Hepworth and George Stubbs are both 12/1 to be the new face of the £20 note with Richard Attenborough at 14/1.
“A market such as this will always be quite volatile during the opening few days and this time around has proved no different,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “We already have two new favourites based on weight of money in the opening 24 hours of betting and our customers reckon that Turner and Blake deserve to be at the top of the market.”
