Big Punt On Lady Aurelia

William Hill laid a bet of £11,000 on Lady Aurelia in a betting shop in London today. Wesley Ward’s filly shortened to 8-11 from 4-5 for the Cheveley Park Stakes off the back of the bet.

“The high rollers are splashing the cash on Lady Aurelia and if Frankie is doing a flying dismount off her back on Saturday we will be reeling,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

In other Newmarket races, Blue Point continues to be really strong in the Middle Park (now 11-10 from 5-4), while Johnny Murtagh’s Eddystone Rock has been trimmed to 12-1 from 16-1 for the weekend’s big handicap, the Cambridgeshire.
