You Bet 223,001 or more pints of Guinness guzzled at Cheltenham
William Hill have opened betting on how many pints of Guinness will be sold at this year's Cheltenham Festival. Last year 222,000 pints of the ‘black stuff' were sold at Prestbury Park - and Hills believe that total could be surpassed.
223,001 pints or more is the 6-4 favourite with William Hill who also offer odds of 13-8 for 217,001-223,000 pints and 2-1 for 217,000 pints or less.
‘There's no better way to celebrate backing a winner at Cheltenham than downing a pint of the black stuff.' said Hills spokesman Tony Kenny, ‘Last year 222,000 pints of Guinness were sold at Prestbury park and we're predicting another busy year for the boys behind the bars at Cheltenham.'
How many pints of Guinness will be sold at this year's Cheltenham Festival: (William Hill bet) 2-1 less than 217,000, 13-8 217,001-223,000, 6-4 223,001 or more - (applies to the number of pints of Guinness sold at Cheltenham racecourse between the 15th and 18th March 2011)
Number of Irish trained winners at the Cheltenham Festival: 7-1 Four Or Less, 9-2 Five, 10-3 Six, 3-1 Seven, 4-1 Eight, 5-1 Nine Or More (St Patricks Day Derby (Charity Race) does not count)
