Early Gamble In The Ladbroke

The race may be more than two weeks away, but there is already an early gamble in The Ladbroke.

William Hill have seen enough bets in just over an hour to cut Winner Massagot from first-price odds of 12-1 to 10-1 and then to 8-1.

“Winner Massagot really caught the eye when winning at Ascot and he could be well ahead of the handicapper,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke. “In just an hour of having prices up, we’ve already had to slash the odds.
