Peace And Co was a hammer blow for bookmakers

Peace And Co was a hammer blow for bookmakers in the Triumph Hurdle, with William Hill reporting a seven figure loss on the Nicky Henderson-trained winner.

 

“Peace And Co was a real blow for bookmakers and took us to the tune of a million pounds,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

 

Meanwhile, William Hill offer 8-1 about Peace And Co for next year’s Champion Hurdle – which Faugheen currently leads as the 6-4 favourite.
