Odds cut on Champion Stakes repeat for Cracksman

Roaring Lion remains favourite

Coral’s traders have slashed the odds on Cracksman repeating last year’s Champions Stakes success with another win next month.

The colt is now 5/2 (was 3/1) after receiving plenty of backing from punters.

Cracksman’s stablemate Roaring Lion remains at the head of the betting. However, he’s eased out from 11/8 to 6/4.

They’re followed in the betting by Sir Michael Stoute’s charge Crystal Ocean at 6/1, with Enable close behind at 7s.

“This is the first support we’ve seen for Cracksman for the Champion Stakes, with punters clearly believing the colt can return to the form of his victory in the race last season, and he’s closing in on his younger stablemate at the head of the betting,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
