Whittington Could Hold Up The Bookies!

Affaire D’Honneur is easily the best-backed horse with William Hill ahead of this weekend’s Imperial Cup and is now 7-2 favourite from an opening 8-1.


“Affaire D’Honneur has been really well backed and if he wins it could be the very worst appetiser ahead of Cheltenham Festival,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.


At longer odds, For Good Measure at 11-2 and Rayvin Black at 10-1 have also attracted support.
