Big Buck’s Toasted By Hills

After siding with the dark destroyer in this afternoon’s World Hurdle showdown, William Hill were anointing Big Buck’s the toast of Cheltenham following his third emphatic win, but ruing a last-breath fightback by punters in the last.

Hills were stand-out odds on Grand Crus this morning at 4-1, and then went 9-2 for a 15-min frenzy between 10.45am and 11am. At the off; William Hill’s website and telephone lines counted almost 12,500 bets for the gallant grey.

Fair results for the layers stretched throughout the afternoon until the very last breath where Junior – backed into 10-3 favourite from an early-morning 7-1 –landed a wounding blow by taking the closing Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Chase.

Kate Miller, spokeswoman for William Hill, said: ‘’It’s been a mixed-bag of results. We bucked the trend by siding aggressively with Big Buck’s and were rewarded, but watching Junior come of age in the Kim Muir hurt us. It’s a photo-finish with the punters for this battle, but we’re still winning the war.’’
