Bookies fear six figure payout as PM turns tipster
After the new Prime Minister, David Cameron turned into a racing tipster on the BBC 'Today' programme, bookmakers William Hill say they have been inundated by punters wanting to back the PM's tips.
His selections were 4/1 chance Daring Dream running in the 3.50 at Ayr and Midnight Fantasy in the 3pm at Wolverhampton.
"The PM said he had picked the horses as both names were relevant to the new coalition," said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
"We can only hope that the PM is a better politician than tipster or this could cost us hundreds of thousands."
Hills have placed a charity bet of £100 each-way on each horse and £100 each-way double on the two which could net almost £9000 for the relevant worthy cause.
