Bookie Relieved As Mizzou Cooks Cookie

William Hill can report that Mizzou getting his neck in front of Clever Cookie to win the Sagaro Stakes saved the company over a quarter of a million pounds. Clever Cookie was a popular 9-4 favourite.

“We’ve got 250,000 reasons to thank Luca Cumani and Andrea Atzeni,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

Clever Cookie and Mizzou both remain 16-1 chances for the Ascot Gold Cup with William Hill.
