Hills Report Honours Even In Derby

The result of this year’s Investec Derby was neither a good nor a bad one for William Hill, who broke even as Harzand claimed an historic win.


“The result was a loser for us online but a winner in the shops, so we broke even. It’s not the dream Derby result for the bookies but it could have been a lot worse,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.


Meanwhile, Hills quote the winner Harzand as the 6-1 second-favourite for Europe’s premier flat race, the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.


Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe: 5-1 Postponed, 6-1 Harzand, 8-1 A Shin Hikari, Duramente, Minding, 12-1 New Bay, 14-1 Found, 16-1 Makahiki, 20-1 Exosphere, Fascinating Rock, (EW 1/5 Odds Places 1,2,3)
