Anthem Scores At Naas

Anthem Alexander won the Racing Post Lacken Stakes at Naas and is now 10-1 from 14-1 with William Hill for the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot. Eddie Lynam’s filly was initially trimmed to 12-1 by Hills, but that was further reduced to 10-1 after a succession of bets.

“There appears to be a lot of interest in Anthem Alexander for Royal Ascot after her win,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
