Bookies Face White Wash After Biggest Queen’s Hat Gamble Yet
The firm were top price about white all morning at 10-1 and clever punters were quick to take advantage. As the money continued to pour in, Coral slashed the odds on white into even money before suspending the market.
“The Queen could put the bookies to the sword for the second time in two days following Estimate’s win in her colours yesterday and we are dreading Her Majesty turning up in white this afternoon. It has been the biggest queen’s hat gamble so far this week and if punters have hit the nail on the head, we are looking down the barrel at a six-figure-sum pay-out”, commented Coral’s Nicola McGeady.

Evens White, 4 Blue, 5 Yellow, 6 Green, 7 Peach/Apricot, 10 Cream/Beige, 14 Grey/Silver, 16 Turquoise, 33 Pink, 33 Red, 40 bar.
