Punters pile in on Cracksman despite Arc uncertainty

Oddschecker users have continued to back Cracksman for next month’s Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe after his impressive victory in Sunday’s Prix Niel. The three-year-old sauntered to a 3 1/2 length victory at Chantilly with some firms slashing his odds to as short as 3/1 off the back of his taking performance. 

35% of all bets through Oddschecker on the ante-post market since the end of Sunday’s race have been for John Gosden’s Great Voltigeur winner, making him the most popular pick with punters. This despite connections failing to confirm he will definitely run on October 1st.

Owner Anthony Oppenheimer declared his preference to put the horse away until next season ready for his four-year-old campaign but also stressed that is would be the trainer who had the final say on whether the son of Frankel will bid to emulate Golden Horn who won the race two years ago for the same owner/trainer combination.

Betfair and Paddy Power remain stand outs at 10/1, with all other bookmakers ranging from 8’s down to aforementioned 3/1.

Even money favourite Enable continues to be understandably popular with punters, the superstar filly has attracted just shy of 25% of all bets in the same period with that figure rising to 34% if you go back to since her rampant victory in this year’s Oaks.
