Will It Be Terrible Tuesday For The Bookmakers?
Day one of Royal Ascot is a real danger day for the bookmakers with a number of very well backed favourites hoping to get punters off to a great start to the week. Ribchester could set the ball rolling by winning the first, with Lady Aurelia, Churchill & Thomas Hobson coming together for a possible bookie busting Lucky15.
“We are predicting a record turnover this week and Tuesday looks like a day that could well go the way of our punters,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. “Ribchester would be the worst possible start and if Churchill conquers too then we are in for a very long day.”
