The Queen’s horse has been laid at odds as big as 33-1 over the winter, but support has heightened since his win in the predominant Derby trial with punters taking all-rates from his 5-2 post-trial price.
The betting partner to the Investec Derby Festival also opened betting on the SP of Sir Michael Stoute’s running, offering odds of 6-4 that his starting price is less than 5-4, and 11-8 that it ranges between 5-4 and 7-4 inclusive.
Kate Miller, spokeswoman for William Hill, said: ‘’It is quite simply a one-horse book now with liabilities on Carlton House outweighing anything else in the field. 90% of the bets struck have been for the royal raider, and punters can’t see beyond his chances.’’
