Tweed consolidates position at head of Ebor market
There has been further support for Harris Tweed ahead of next week’s totesport Ebor and William Haggas’ three-year-old is now the 5/1 clear favourite (from 6/1) with the sponsors.
‘Although Harris Tweed is far from certain to get into the Ebor, punters have been keen to keep him onside ever since the market opened and he is now the clear favourite in our ante-post book,’ said totesport spokesman George Primarolo.
Impressive Goodwood winner Martyr is the 6/1 second-favourite ahead of 9/1 shot Overturn, who is not certain to line up on the Knavesmire after his recent victory in the Galway Hurdle.
Looking ahead to next Tuesday, Rip Van Winkle remains the 11/8 favourite for the Juddmonte International with totesport despite Aidan O’Brien admitting that his running plans for the race have yet to be finalised. Royal Ascot winner Byword is next in the market at 9/4 with Twice Over a 3/1 shot.
