Gamble on Transom

Transom was heavily backed yesterday for Saturday's Northumberland Plate Handicap at Newcastle. Amanda Perrett's charge was cut from 14-1 to 7-1 by the Tote and from 14-1 to 8-1 by Coral. Shaft Of Light was also well backed - from 20-1 to 12-1 - with Coral.

Simon Clare, Coral's spokesman, said: "Everyone from the big hitters to the 50p customers wanted to get on either Transom or Shaft Of Light, and we laid both to lose tens of thousands of pounds"
