Grendisar The One To Beat In Classic

William Hill price Grendisar as the 5-4 favourite for this Friday’s Easter Classic at Lingfield. The Marco Botti-trained six-year-old has won both his starts at the track in 2016, running on well to win the Winter Derby last time out. The runner-up that day was Maverick Wave who is second-favourite at 9-2 for Good Friday’s race, with William Haggas’ Battalion next in the market at 6-1.

“Grendisar has been in the form of his life in 2016 and looks the one to beat in the Easter Classic,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

Mindurownbusiness is the 2-1 favourite for the All-Weather Mile, while Cold As Ice is the shortest priced favourite (4-5) in any of the AW Championship races, when she bids for the Fillies’ And Mares’ race.
