Winx at Royal Ascot? That’s just one of our 2018 Racing specials!
With 2018 finally here, we’ve priced up an array of New Year racing specials for speculative punters.
This year’s specials revolve around Aidan O’Brien, Frankie Dettori, Matt Chapman and a certain Meghan Markle.
Before that quartet, though, it’s all about the horses themselves.
After creating history at the Cheltenham Festival in 2017, it’s 25/1 that Irish-trained horses win all four feature races at the 2018 festival.
As for Royal Ascot, we go 4/1 that American wonder-horse Winx wins any race at the meeting.
Aidan O’Brien chalked up 26 Group 1 winners in 2017 and it’s 5/1 that he breaks his own record on the flat in 2018.
We go 16/1 that the trainer wins all ten 2018 UK and Irish Classics.
Meanwhile, Meghan Markle is even-money to ride in the Queen’s carriage at Royal Ascot.
And with the UK’s unpredictable weather showing no signs of letting up, our traders go 16/1 for snow to fall during a race at the 2018 Cheltenham Festival.
Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said: “2017 saw plenty of record-breaking moments in racing and the odds aren’t ruling out even more historic moments in 2018.”
