Punters Pick Moore And Dettori To Top Ascot

Ryan Moore is a hot-favourite to be Top Jockey at Royal Ascot over the coming week and is now 4-11 with William Hill from initial odds of 8-11. Richard Hughes has been weak in the market and has drifted out to 8-1 from an opening price of 4-1.

 

Meanwhile, Frankie Dettori is the other jockey that is being backed and he has shortened to 8-1 from 12-1.

 

“Frankie’s popularity has surged again in recent weeks after his Derby triumph and now he returns to the scene of the biggest bashing in bookmaking history, ready to run riot once more at Ascot,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

 

In the Top Trainer betting, Aidan O’Brien is a solid 7-4 chance, with Richard Hannon at 9-4 and Sir Michael Stoute at 9-2.

 

“As ever, Aidan O’Brien is the man to beat at Royal Ascot with an army of Irish raiders poised to lift the Royal silverware,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
