William H Backed With William H!

William H Backed With William H!


The Betfair Hurdle market is vibrant with William Hill and it’s another William H that has been the best-backed.


William H Bonney is 8-1 from 9-1, while there has also been support for Ballyandy who is now outright favourite at 9-2 from 11-2.


“William H is the best-backed and he would not be a ‘Bonney’ result for us this weekend,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.


Meanwhile, the Game Spirit Chase could be a fascinating clash as Altior takes on Fox Norton. In the Irish Gold Cup, Minella Rocco is the most popular at 7-2, with Don Poli currently favourite at 11-4.


In the Dubai World Cup, William Hill slashed Arrogate from 5-2 to 7-4 favourite, after he was amongst the entries for the massive Middle East race.
