Bookies Braced For Blooming Big Bets On Rhododendron

Rhododendron could be a thorn in the side of the bookmakers on Friday should it deliver another classic for the irresistible combination of O’Brien & Moore. Hills have once again cut the price today from 10/11 to 4/5.


“If Rhododendron wins then we will take a possible double hit as there is certain to be a renewed gamble on Cilffs Of Moher for the Derby on Saturday,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
