“We’ve taken a £10k each-way bet at 9/2 on Peddlers Cross this morning, so we don’t want that horse to win as we’ve already laid it for bundles ante-post,” said StanJames.com spokesman Garry McGibbon. “However we’ve also seen plenty of shrewd money for the forgotten horse in the Champion Hurdle, Khyber Kim, so we’ve had to cut his price to 11/1 from 14/1.”
StanJames.com also report hefty support for Cue Card during their Happy Hour where they are currently best industry price on the horse in the Supreme Novices Hurdle. “We’ve taken a £20k win bet on Cue Card at odds of 3/1, but we still maintain the horse won’t win.”
La Vecchia Scuola has also been backed heavily each-way in the Mares’ Hurdle against the red-hot favourite Quevega. She’s now 16/1 from 22/1.
