Mappin Course To £79,000 Trump Card

JOHN MAPPIN, Donald Trump's biggest British backer, has placed THIRTY bets with bookmakers William Hill on the Republican front-runner to become the Party's nominee and then go on to win the race to the White House.

And after staking £7200 on the wagers the owner of Cornwall's Camelot Castle Hotel is set for a payout of £79,336.23 ($112,000) from William Hill.

'Mr Mappin began backing Donald Trump last July, when he was 20/1 to become the Republican candidate and 33/1 to be President, and has been placing more bets ever since' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.'I doubt whether he has plced his last one yet!'

William Hill are now quoting Trump as 1/ 4 (stake 4 for profit of 1) favourite to be the candidate, and 5/2 (stake 2 for profit of 5) to win the Presidential race.
