Pendulum Swings Towards Vautour

William Hill have started to see support for Vautour in the ‘King George Match-Bet’ market against Don Cossack. Vautour is Even-Money to beat Don Cossack (8-11) in the Kempton feature.

Gordon Elliott’s charge took over as outright favourite just over a week ago, but the momentum appears to be shifting back towards Vautour. Don Cossack is currently the 5-2 favourite ahead of Vautour at 3-1.

“The money is coming again for Vautour and he could soon take over from Silviniaco Conti as the worst result in the book,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

There has also been money for Vautour in the Ryanair market and he is now 5-2 from 3-1.

“Vautour is being hammered for the Ryanair Chase and the race could be a viable alternative to the Gold Cup,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

As a result, William Hill created a new price of 8-1 for Vautour to win the King George and the Ryanair Chase.
