Yucatan heads Racing Post Trophy betting

| 20.10.2016

Yucatan is the 11-10 favourite with Coral for Saturday’s Racing Post Trophy, ahead of Rivet at 11-2, following the final declarations for the Doncaster Group One.  Sir Dancealot and Salouen are both 8-1, but the initial ante-post favourite Capri, who drifted from evens to 5-2 this week, was not among the ten runners.

“The market spoke strongly in favour of Yucatan this week, who was a 5-1 shot when we opened betting on Monday, and despite some initial support for Capri, as the week went on he became friendless in the betting, and so it’s not a huge surprise he didn’t feature among the final declarations,” said Coral’s David Stevens.

David joined Coral as PR manager in 2001, having previously worked at the
Racing Post. Now in the role of Head of PR, he is involved in all aspects
of the company's media relations, providing the latest racing betting news , as well as Coral's sponsorship and event
portfolio. A keen sports fan, and long-suffering Portsmouth supporter (the
two are not always connected), when not working he will normally be found
heading south, or east or west, to the sun, and that liking for the sunshine
explains why he will always prefer flat racing to the jumps.
