UK Horse Racing Cancellation

William Hill supports the BHA’s actions as they are in the best interests of equine welfare and we hope this cancellation prevents a wider outbreak. Of course we do not want a more extended period without racing but the BHA must act in the interests of equine welfare. William Hill is fully prepared for any cancellations as we have successfully diversified our products over a number of years to provide customers with products that sit alongside British racing as well as providing an alternative during periods of cancellations. We have live racing from South Africa, France, India and the US whilst also showing all Irish racing and selected meetings from Dubai, South Korea, Germany, Mauritius, Hong Kong and South America. International racing is popular with our customers and acts as an effective substitute when we lose British racing to the weather and football betting has grown substantially in recent years.

Oscars : A Star is Born Drifts – Momentum Builds For Bohemian Rhapsody

Bookies Bet That Theresa May Is Set For Resounding Defeat

The latest odds from William Hill suggest that Theresa May has not got a cat in hell’s chance of getting the Brexit bill through Parliament on January 15th and it is 1/7 that she loses the vote. Hills have set the spread at 237 votes (10/11 less than, 10/11 238 or more) well short of the 320 required to pass the bill. “There are only so many times that you can drag yourself off the canvas and things are looking bleak for Theresa May,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. “The odds suggest she is going to fail by around eighty votes.” UK Parliament To Approve EU Withdrawal Agreement in January 2019: 1/7 No, 4/1 Yes January 15th Vote: 10/11 237 or less, 10/11 238 or more Withdrawal Agreement To Be Approved By UK Parliament Before 30/03/19: 4/11 No, 1/1 Yes 2/1 UK to revoke Article 50 before 29/03/19 UK to have second EU referendum before end of 2020?: 8/15 No, 11/8 Yes Year Theresa May Leaves Office As PM: 2/7 2019, 9/2 2020, 12/1 2021, 10/1 2022 or later
