Horse Racing By Jon Ivan-Duke

Could Aidan Win Everything?

It has become customary that Aidan O’Brien holds the strongest roster of horses to contest the UK Classics and William Hill offer a big price of 33-1 that he wins all five this season.

 

Four of the five UK Classics currently have betting (with only the St Leger without a general market at this stage) and O’Brien has the favourite in all four markets.

 

The Ballydoyle maestro trains 70% of the horses at less than 33-1 in William Hill’s Investec Derby market – including the front four in the betting.

 

“It’s entirely possible that Aidan O’Brien could win all the Classics in England this year, with a potentially incredible squad of horses to pick from,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
