Baccarat Backed For William Hill Great St Wilfrid Stakes
Sponsors William Hill are keen to stay on the right side of Baccarat who has been well supported all week for The William Hill Great St Wilfrid Stakes, the highlight of Ripon's racing calendar.
The Richard Fahey favourite put in an eye-catching run at York last time out but was badly hampered at a crucial stage.
David O'Meara has won the last two renewals with Pepper Lane. This year he is represented by Louis The Pious and Dick Bos sneaks in at the bottom of the weights.
Spinatrix has a magnificent record at Ripon, having won three times and never finishing out of the places in four other runs, whilst Pearl Ice could reverse the pair's recent one-two at the course.
William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke said "Baccarat is definitely the best backed horse. He was 7-1 at the start of the week, 5/1 now and there's still plenty of money coming in for him. We've also seen support for Dick Bos and Spinatrix."
