Cash for Cecil Derby colt
Saturday 19 January 2008
One Coral client believes the Henry Cecil renaissance is set to continue as yesterday he placed a £12,000 cash bet at 12-1 on the Newmarket trainer's Twice Over to win the Derby in June. Cecil had his best season for some time in 2007, including saddling Light Shift to an emotional success in the Oaks. The Khalid Abdullah-owned Twice Over is now 8-1 with Coral to give Cecil a fifth Derby winner, after Slip Anchor, Reference Point, Commander In Chief and Oath.
The punter also placed a £2,000 ante-post treble on Twice Over at 12-1 in the Derby, Kauto Star at 5-4 for the Cheltenham Gold Cup and Sublimity at 4-1 in the Champion Hurdle.
