Wolverhampton: favourites ruled on TuesdayPICTURE: Getty Images
Black day for Wolverhampton layers
IT was certainly not an afternoon to be a bookmaker at Wolverhampton as the seven-race card produced a clean sweep for favourites at cumulative odds of 647-1.
Six clear market leaders all obliged while the penultimate race was won by 3-1 co-favourite Conserve.
A representative of on-course layers W Boden, told the Racing Post: "The cry from the ring was 'send more money' after five races but then it got worse with the last two winning as well.
"It's a good job it did not happen on a Saturday evening when the course is heaving or we would really have been in trouble but there were not that many punters at the course this afternoon.
"Although we have lost a few quid it could have been much worse but most of us have been able to control matters a bit but we would not want it happening every meeting."
