A Saturday for Favourite Backers
William Hill can report strong support for the favourites in both the Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes and the Preakness Stakes.
Night Of Thunder is the market leader in the Lockinge and is the most popular selection amongst William Hill customers. Integral and Custom Cut also have their backers, while at longer odds Aljamaaheer is attracting the each-way punters.
“Night Of Thunder is a very solid favourite for the Lockinge and appears to be the worst possible result for the bookies,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
Meanwhile, Kentucky Derby winner American Pharoah is the only horse punters want to back in the Preakness.
“It’s a one-horse market and nearly all the bets placed on the race are on the favourite,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
