Poet to stage celebration double
Poet's Voice is 5-4 favourite with William Hill for the Celebration Mile at Goodwood on Saturday after one-time market leader Strong Suit was not amongst the final declarations.
The Godolphin representative had been supported from 4-1 since betting opened in a bid to land the mile Group Two for a second successive year, and was vying for favouritism prior to the 48-hour forfeit stage.
Lucy Rhodes, spokeswoman for William Hill, said 'Momentum shifted quickly to Poets Voice yesterday and punters were proved correct in siding with the Godolphin representative on this occasion'
Celebration Mile: 5-4 Poet's Voice, 4-1 Dubawi Gold, 11-2 Beacon Lodge, 8-1 Emerald Commander, 9-1 Premio Loco, 12-1 Set The Trend, 20-1 Riggins (EW 1/4 1,2)
