William Hill Out To Lay The Front Three In Betfair Chase

Prices traded from 5.30pm and altered throughout the night. Re-released for morning trade tomorrow (8:30am online, 9am in shops)



William Hill are going 4-1 the field in the big race at Haydock on Saturday as they take on the trio of Cue Card, Dynaste and Silviniaco Conti. Those three horses filled the first three places in last year’s race, but William Hill think they all have their vulnerabilities in this year’s renewal.


“All three have their own question marks, whether it be over trip, ground or recent form and we are out to lay them,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke. “The worst antepost result is Silviniaco Conti, but the book could look very different by race time.”
