Punters Pin Hopes On Drumacoo

William Hill punters are expecting a big performance from Drumacoo at Ascot on Saturday and he has also been backed for the RSA Chase. Drumacoo is now 16-1 from 20-1 for the RSA Chase with William Hill. (He is also 25-1 for the National Hunt Chase).

“Punters are expecting a big performance from Drumacoo at Ascot and they think he will shorten considerably for the RSA Chase as a result,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

In the Ascot Chase, Silviniaco Conti and Dynaste have both been laid, while Gas Line Boy is the worst result for William Hill in the Grand National Trial at Haydock.
