Chelsea Flower Show: Late Royal Gamble

Prince Harry’s charity, Sentebale, has been the subject of a late gamble in the betting for the Best Show Garden at Chelsea Flower Show. ‘Sentebale – Hope In Vulnerability’ is now 10/1 from 14/1 to win Best Show Garden after a last-minute plunge.

However, the hot odds-on favourite is ‘The Laurent-Perrier Chatsworth Garden’, designed by Dan Pearson. Bookmakers have witnessed the biggest betting market ever on the Chelsea Flower Show and more than half of all the bets have been placed on the favourite.

“There is certainly some late support for Sentebale, but the strong trend is overwhelmingly for Dan Pearson’s showpiece garden,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
