Osaila Popular In Guineas Market

William Hill have got out the betting shears and trimmed Osaila for the 1000 Guineas after popular support for the Richard Hannon-trained filly.


Hill's spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke said: "We were out on our own at 20/1 and it has been popular. The betting patterns suggest Osaila is the one that punters want to be with after the trials.”

One customer stands to collect £6750 if Osaila wins the 1000 Guineas after taking the 20/1 odds with William Hill, while another could be picking up £6000 in winnings if she prevails.

Found remains a solid favourite at 5-2 and is currently the only horse at single figure odds.
