Road To Riches Static In Betting

Road To Riches is unmoved in the betting with William Hill after winning the Clonmel Oil Chase. He is 14-1 for the Gold Cup and 14-1 for the William Hill King George VI Chase. 

“It was a comfortable performance from Road To Riches and we’d love to see him lining up in the King George,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke. “Wherever he ends up at Christmas time and back in the Gold Cup in March, he could be a really interesting contender. 

Meanwhile, ahead of Saturday’s Paddy Power Gold Cup, William Hill are taking a good spread of business, with King’s Palace a supported favourite at 7-1, while Johns Spirit has shortened to 10-1 from 20-1 at the start of the week.

“The betting momentum this week is behind Johns Spirit and his price has halved, although King’s Palace is a well-supported favourite,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
