Macdillon backed to be king of the veterans
SOME of racing's senior citizens get to strut their stuff in Salisbury's 5f handicap at 3.30, a sprint race confined to horses aged six and over.
It's been a while since Macdillon tasted victory, two years ago to be precise, but with his official rating falling below 70 for the first time, his price has been in free-fall all morning.
Paddy Power originally went 8-1 about the Stuart Kittow-trained seven-year-old but, following sustained support, go just 10-3 now.
There's Group race action from the Curragh on Sunday and an interesting move is materialising in the Group 3 Grangecon Stud Stakes at 2.35.
The Tommy Stack-trained Clenor has yet to win a race but has been backed into 5-1 (from 10-1) with bet365 to make it third time lucky.
At Windsor, Emperor's Hope (3.55) is one of the best backed on the card despite the presence of an odds-on stablemate in the same race.
Trained by Richard Hannon, who also runs favourite Fast, Emperor's Hope is into 3-1 (from 5-1) to cause an upset.
