Odds for defending champion Our Jonathan have also shrunk, this time from 16/1 to 12s as he looks to give owner Dr Marwan Koukash a hat trick in this race on Saturday.
Lucy Rhodes from William Hill told Betrescue, “No William Hill Ayr Gold Cup winner would be more popular than Hawkeyethenoo. He’s our worst result in the book at present and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him shorten further as the locals get stuck in on the big day.
“That said,” she addes, “a first Scottish victory for decades on home soil would definitely have us paying out with a smile”
