Score Draw For Punters And Bookies

Punters and Bookmakers both leave Royal Ascot happy, with plenty of well-backed horses winning, yet some real turn-ups for the bookies too. Punters are probably just about in front, but not by much.


“It’s been a good scrap all week, but it’s come down to the scorecards and the punters may just have edged it on points,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke. “Racing has showcased itself well and hopefully the exciting races have attracted new fans to the sport.”
