William Hill Reaction To Trainers’ Championship Changes

William Hill will void bets upon request on the Flat Trainers’ Championship until the end of Saturday, following the news that the format and rules have now changed. After that, bets will stand and run under the new format.

“It’s not fair on punters or bookmakers to change the rules part way through a betting event. People who have placed a bet with us before this announcement will be able to void their bets upon request until end of play on Saturday. Having said this, we feel it will have little impact on the Trainers’ Championship and our odds have not changed as a result,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

2016 Flat Trainers’ Championship (1st January – 31st December): 4-5 John Gosden, 9-4 Aidan O’Brien, 5-1 Richard Hannon, 12-1 Richard Fahey, 33-1 Mark Johnston, Roger Varian
