Bookies feeling pink after second correct Queen Royal Ascot pick

| 20.06.2012

THE QUEEN is now just 2/1 to wear a yellow hat on Ladies’ Day at Royal Ascot, according to Ladbrokes.

With odds of 500/1 one fashionista punter that predicted what colour hat Her Majesty will wear every day is on course to collect her £2500 winnings after correctly naming blue and pink as The Queen’s choices for Day One and Two of the meet.

The accumulator of her remaining forecast for Thursday (yellow), Friday (purple) and Saturday (blue) has been slashed to 25/1 (from 100/1 on Tuesday) as the bookies fear her selections coming up trumps.

And following the punter’s predictions, the firm have also cut the chance of The Queen wearing yellow on Ladies’ Day to just 2/1 (from 5/1) in anticipation of the 100 per cent record continuing.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “We’re really fearing paying out a small fortune to her now. We’ll need a silk handkerchief to wipe the sweat away from our brow if her predictions go right down to the wire on Saturday!”
