Bookies Scared Of Frankie Favourites

Mehmas is 4-1 favourite for the Coventry Stakes with William Hill after an eye-catching win at Newbury.


“At this rate, Frankie Dettori could be on a hatful of favourites at Royal Ascot,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke. “And that is a terrifying prospect for bookmakers.”
