Punter Awaiting £210k Payout After Six-Figure York Wager
One London shop client could kick off Ebor week in style after taking advantage of William Hill's Industry standout morning prices today.
The £110,000 bet, struck in the Capital stands to net a £210,000 payout if Await The Dawn obliges in the Juddmonte International at The Knavesmire this afternoon.
Placed at 10-11, the Royal Ascot winner is now 5-6 with the bookmakers for the Festival's opening day Group One.
It is the second sizeable bet laid by the firm today, with a £40,000 bet struck on stablemate Seville. The wager brought an end to the 6-4 on offer by Hills, and the Voltigeur favourite is now available at 5-4.
Kate Miller, spokeswoman for William Hill, said: ''The Ebor meeting is often a graveyard for the bookies, and if the two big-guns oblige on the opening day, we could be reaching for the anti-depressants at a very early stage!''.
