Basem New Goodwood Favourite

Basem is the new 8-1  favourite with William Hill for the Goodwood Mile after a good win in the Challenge at Sandown on Saturday. Hills slashed the odds from 14-1 after the victory.


Runner-up Munaaser has also been trimmed from 25-1 to 12-1 after he stayed on well to grab second.


“Basem is clearly developing in to a horse to be reckoned with and he’s the one they all have to beat at Goodwood,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
