Hot Favourite Wins Chelsea Flower Show
The red-hot favourite for the Chelsea Flower Show has won the Best Show Garden. Dan Pearson’s creation, the ‘Laurent-Perrier Chatsworth Garden’, was backed in from initial odds of 4/1 to an odds-on price of 8/13 and was strongly tipped by Britain’s biggest bookmaker William Hill to win the prize.
“We took thousands of bets on the result of the Best Show Garden and as expected, the favourite has waltzed away with the honours,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke. “The majority of bets were on Dan Pearson’s showpiece and punters will be popping the champagne in celebration.”
