Found and Lucida in Battle for Bets

Found was all the rage in William Hill’s antepost book on the Coronation Stakes, but after William Hill trimmed the horse to 7-4 from 2-1 on Wednesday night, Lucida has taken over as the horse attracting most bets.


The Aidan O’Brien-trained filly was easily the most popular until William Hill cut the odds, with Lucida now the one for money.


“Found was the most popular horse in the antepost book but Lucida now has the market momentum,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.


Meanwhile, in the Commonwealth Cup, the current 4-1 favourite Limato is the most popular selection in what looks to be a very competitive race.
