Big Bet On My Tent Or Yours

William Hill have seen some very interesting money for My Tent Or Yours for this weekend at Haydock, laying a £20,000 bet to a regular shop punter based in South East England. As a result, Hills have cut My Tent Or Yours to 8-11 from Even-Money, while pushing out Irving to 7-2 from 9-4.

“The big guns are backing My Tent Or Yours to score this weekend and if he wins with authority then his Champion Hurdle odds will be axed,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

My Tent Or Yours is currently a 33-1 chance for the Champion Hurdle, a race which he finished second in last year.

In the weekend’s biggest race, Cue Card and Coneygree are both being supported at the front end of the Betfair Chase market. Cue Card is 6-4 favourite with Coneygree at 2-1. However, the biggest price move has been on Seeyouatmidnight who has shortened with William Hill to 9-1 from 20-1 at the start of the week.

“While many might see this as a straight battle between Cue Card and Coneygree, there are others who think they are beatable with Seeyouatmidnight particularly well-backed at longer odds,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.  

Meanwhile, in the Fixed Brush Hurdle, Kruzhlinin is 16-1 from 25-1 and Point The Way is 20-1 from 33-1 with William Hill after some good each-way support.
