Punter Pilgrimage As Mecca's Backed

Punters are sticking their cash on Mecca’s Angel with showers expected to help her chances of landing the Temple Stakes. She is now 9-4 favourite from 5-2 with William Hill.

“Mecca’s Angel is a popular favourite for the Temple Stakes and with rain expected between now and race time, it is only likely to improve her chances,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
