Once again 'williamhillradio.com' have stepped in to ensure the British public can enjoy live commentary of this Sundays Prix Morny from Deauville, now absent from all live terrestrial TV coverage. Next years 2000gns favourite Johannesburg (currently 61 with Hills) is taken on by the likes of David Loders Meshaheer (201) and the unbeaten Andre Fabre colt War Zone (331) in a mouth watering juvenile contest.

David Hood, Hills spokesman said, "Our internet radio station now has registered listeners in over 220 countries around the world and by providing live commentary of this race we are fulfilling our aim of providing the best sport and racing content to them. Already this year we have provided the UK with exclusive coverage of the American Triple Crown and the French Derby and our listening figures indicate a strong demand for these International races."

The Scoop6 travels to Newmarket and Beverley this Saturday with over £470,000 worth of rollovers lining the Win and Bonus prize fund pools.

The Win fund rollover has grown to £228,853 while the Bonus fund stands at £243,353.

"Despite taking some good sized pools, punters have been struggling to master the Scoop6 bet over recent weeks," said Tote spokesman Jeremy Scott.

"However they have another chance to crack the elusive Scoop6 combination tomorrow, when the rewards will be raised once again.A single Win fun winner going on to scoop next weeks Bonus fund should find themselves being £600,000 better off."

The three-day Ebor meeting at York further fuelled the fires of debate surrounding the Computer Straight Forecast (CSF), as the Tote Exacta once again completely outperformed its betting shop cousin.

The Exacta outpaid the CSF in 19 of the 21 races during the three days, and overall paid a massive 76% better divided.

"From the most open and competitive handicaps to the Group 1 Nunthorpe, the Exacta has again proved the value bet of this meeting, consistently outperforming the CSF," said Tote spokesman Jeremy Scott.

"Over the three days a winning £1 Exacta on each race would have returned £2,477 completely eclipsing the £1,405 returned on the CSF over the same period.Exacta winners on the first race this afternoon would have been particularly easy to spot counting their cash with the bet beating the CSF by 258%."
