Jack Hobbs The Bogey For William Hill

Jack Hobbs is the 5-4 favourite* for the Champion Stakes with William Hill and a Saturday banker for many punters. William Hill are offering a special of 7-2 that he wins by 2 lengths or more.


“Champions Day really is becoming one of the great events in British sport and punters love it. The big bogey for us is Jack Hobbs and he is easily the worst result in the book,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.


Silvestre de Sousa will be crowned Champion Jockey on Saturday and he is 6-1 with William Hill to ride any winner on the card at Ascot.


“If Silvestre rides a Champions Day winner it will be the cherry on the cake after putting in the hard graft all season,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.


Meanwhile, Aidan O’Brien has two fillies running at Ascot on Saturday and William Hill are offering a special for both Found and Tapestry to be placed at 6-1.
