The Jumps' 48-hour countdown - Savage takes on McCoy
The clock is ticking with less than 48 hours to get involved in a chance to win £100,000 for as little as £2 in William Hill’s fantasy horse racing competition ‘The Jumps’ with the closing date noon this Saturday 26th November.
By close of play on Saturday, the entry could have already paid for itself with numerous top contenders such as Binocular, Aiteen Thirtythree, Michel Le Bon and Big Buck’s, plus ‘Stable Star’ Peddlers Cross, making appearances this weekend.
BONUS ODDS, enhanced by 20% at William Hill, are available each time the selected Stable Star runs.
Entrants can keep track of their progress Online at www.thejumps.com – and also see how they fare against William Hill’s ‘face of the National Hunt season’, 16-time Champion jockey Tony McCoy and the firm’s ‘face of football’, Strictly star Robbie Savage.
William Hill have priced-up a match bet between the duo, with McCoy getting the nod at 4-6, vs Savage at 11-10.
Lucy Rhodes, spokeswoman for William Hill, said, "The competition kicks off on a massive weekend in the horse racing calendar – which could not only get your entry off to a real flyer but, for as little as £2 per shout, it could have covered itself!"
Coupon slips are available in William Hill betting shops and it costs just £2 to enter, with a win prize of £100,000 and runner-up prize of £50,000 up for grabs at the end of the competition in March, plus monthly prizes of £4,000 available.

Your 'Stable Star' (the selection picked from the list of eight) entitles you to 20 PER CENT BONUS ODDS every time it runs throughout the competition dates. To avail of the bonus odds, players must bring along their printed entry slip and wallet when they’re backing their selection.
