California Chrome Could Rub Salt In To Bookies' Wounds

California Chrome is the worst result in the Dubai World Cup for William Hill and support is expected to continue on the heavily backed 11-8 favourite*.

 

“California Chrome could rub salt in to the wounds if he wins the World Cup, as we are still squirming from a dreadful Cheltenham Festival,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke. “California Chrome is a well-backed favourite and he’s the one we really need to beat on World Cup night.”

 

Meanwhile, Vazirabad has shortened to 5-4 favourite from 11-8 in the Dubai Gold Cup, while Marking is 6-4 favourite from 7-4 in the Godolphin Mile.

 

Elsewhere, Grendisar hammered home as a strongly backed 4-6 favourite in the Easter Classic at Lingfield.

 

“Grendisar’s victory has certainly not made it a Good Friday for bookmakers,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
