Jolly Punters Think They've Cracked It

Jolly’s Cracked It has been the subject of sustained support in one of the weekend’s feature races. The Harry Fry-trained hurdler dead-heated to win the Ladbroke last time and is now 5-1 from 7-1 with William Hill for this weekend’s contest at Ascot.

“Tis the season to be jolly, but not for bookies who will be dead against Jolly’s Cracked It this Saturday,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

Meanwhile, it is all about Harry Fry’s Unowhatimeanharry in the Long Walk Hurdle. He’s 11-10 favourite with William Hill and could be tough to beat after a dominant performance at Newbury last time out.

“Bookies fear a Saturday Fry Up!” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

In the Lavazza Jolie Silver Cup, Saphir Du Rheu is the 7-1 favourite, with Go Conquer the best-backed horse from 10-1 in to 8-1 with Hills.

“Go Conquer is brewing up to be a bad loser for William Hill in the Lavazza,” said spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
