HORSE RACING: A look at some of today’s market moves in the ante post horse racing markets, including Saturday’s 2000 Guineas. Compare latest odds for ante post horse racing.
St Nicholas Abbey continues to get the treatment ahead of Saturday’s big event, Victor Chandler have trimmed him from 6/4 to 11/8. Most firms remain at 6/4 but Stan James have finally been tempted into 6/4 from 13/8. Victor Chandler’s Neal Wilkins expects the red hot fav to shorten further before the race.
There has been some interest on Fencing Master, the stable-mate of St Nicholas Abbey, Totesport moving from 16′s to 10/1, Skybet also chopping from 16′s but to 12/1. Ladbrokes have stood firm at 16/1. It would appear punters perhaps fancy a repeat of 2002, when Aidan O’Brien’s heavy fav Hawk Eye was beaten by 2nd choice Rock Of Gibraltar.
Hibaayeb, the Godolphin runner shortened in The Oaks recently, was moved in to 25/1 from 33′s by Victor Chandler only this morning, but as of midday today (Wednesday) has been sliced to 14′s. There is a general movement towards Godolphin and The Classics.
William Hill have shortened Pollenator in The Oaks, 20/1 down to 16′s, displaying a wide interest in Hannon’s horse.
Stan James have shortened Majestic Concorde into 20/1 from 33/1.
