Bookies Facing Six Figure Payout After Favourites Win Boat Race

Oxford’s win in the Varsity Boat Race left Britain’s bookies facing a six figure payout. William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly said “Oxford were incredibly well backed to win the race and their price came in over the last few weeks until they were clear favourites. We fancy them to build on this victory and do the double next year now.”


Oxford impressed so much that William Hill have now chaled them up as 4/6 favourites for next year.
