Fontiton attracts 86% of William Hill Blue Diamond bets

At race sponsor, a remarkable 86% of the total money wagered on the race since Tuesday’s barrier draw has been for the unbeaten filly.


“They’re backing her as though she’s the only one in the race,” said William Hill’s Andrew Brown.


“She’s a huge loser for us in both our all-in and final field books and it seems we’ll be the only ones in the country pulling on her tail.”


One William Hill punter has Fontiton as the second leg of a huge $50,000 double, with Futurity Stakes favourite Dissident the first-leg.
