Horn Cuts as Treve Eased

William Hill can report strong support in the Arc for Golden Horn off the back of a dry forecast for this week at Longchamp and positive comments from John Gosden. As a result, William Hill have trimmed Golden Horn to 5-1 from 6-1.


However, his stablemate Jack Hobbs is heavily on the drift – he’s now 10-1 from 7-1 for the Arc with William Hill, with the Champion Stakes perhaps looking a more likely option. Jack Hobbs has now gone favourite for the Champion Stakes at 7-2 from 5-1, with Golden Horn heading the other way now 5-1 from 7-2 favourite.


Meanwhile, Treve remains odds-on favourite for the Arc, but William Hill have slightly eased her chance to 4-5 from 8-11 with the drying ground potentially not in her favour.
