Horse Racing By Jon Ivan-Duke

Punters Pinpoint Laser

William Hill are laying plenty of Laser Hawk ahead of Saturday’s Greatwood Gold Cup and the Evan Williams-trained horse at the bottom of the weights, is now 14-1 from 25-1.

Ultragold is another who is proving popular at 8-1 for Colin Tizzard, after winning at Wincanton last time.

However, it is Art Mauresque who is the worst result in the book – he’s the 5-1 favourite for Paul Nicholls, who has won seven of the last ten renewals.

“Paul Nicholls has such a cracking record in the race, so we don’t want to stick our necks too far above the parapet,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
