Hugo Boss! Gifted Master Wins For Palmer

Hugo Palmer’s Gifted Master scored in impressive fashion to win the Pavilion Stakes at Ascot and William Hill halved his price for the Commonwealth Cup as a result. He’s now 7-1 from 14-1. Only 4-1 favourite Acapulco is ahead of him in the betting.

“Gifted Master looks every inch a Royal Ascot horse and we’ll be keeping close tabs on his odds,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
