Punters Betting On Bronze In Cambridgeshire

In the Cambridgeshire, the 8-1 favourite with William Hill is Bronze Angel and he is the best-backed horse in the race. The Marcus Tregoning-trained gelding has won the race twice before, with one punter standing to walk away with over £7k from Hills if Bronze Angel scores for a third time in the Cambridgeshire.

The other three horses who would put the bookies in to the red at this stage are Gm Hopkins, Earth Drummer and Third Time Lucky.

“We’ve got a lot of respect for Bronze Angel given his excellent record in the race and at the moment he is the worst result in the book,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.


Before that, on Friday, Time Test is favourite with Hills to land the Shadwell Joel Stakes for trainer Roger Charlton, who won the race in 2010 with Cityscape. Time Test will face just three rivals, including last year’s winner Custom Cut.


Hugo Palmer sends his promising filly Hawksmoor out to face six opponents in the Shadwell Rockfel Stakes – she’s a short-price favourite with William Hill to win the contest.
