Cesarewitch Support For Martin Marauders

William Hill can report some strong money in the build up to this weekend’s Cesarewitch for Tony Martin’s Quick Jack and Heartbreak City.


Quick Jack is second in the betting at 8-1 and is coming under pressure at those odds, while Heartbreak City has narrowed to 10-1 from 12-1 with William Hill in the past few hours.


“We’re being bowled over with bets for Tony Martin’s marauders who are being backed to scoop Saturday’s Cesarewitch,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.


The David Pipe-trained winner of the Cesarewitch Trial, Low Key is also popular as the 7-1 favourite.


At bigger odds, Renneti has shortened to 14-1 from 20-1 at the start of the week, while William Of Orange is 14-1 from 16-1.


Meanwhile in the Dubai Dewhurst Stakes, Emotionless is attracting significantly more support than Air Force Blue, who is relatively weak with concerns around the ground conditions.


“Emotionless is attracting the vast majority of bets out of the front two, with Air Force Blue pretty weak with concerns over whether he will take part,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.


Air Force Blue is currently the 4-1 favourite for next year’s 2000 Guineas with Emotionless at 5-1, but the betting market is likely to be affected by the result of this weekend’s Dewhurst.
