It’s a nervy wait for the 15:10 at Goodwood today for one Oddschecker customer who has placed £1200 on The Gurkha to win the Sussex Stakes. The Aiden O’Brien-trained 3-year-old is joint 5/2 favourite for the race alongside Frankie Dettori’s Galileo Gold. If The Gurkha interests you too, there's still time to get on board!
We’ve got an Olympiakos fan amongst our beloved ranks. They face Hapoel Be’er Sheva in their Champions League qualifier tonight at home and a £650 stake has been placed on the Greek champions to do the business.
The political fiends amongst you have had your say with some chunky bets placed on Hillary Clinton to come up trumps (sorry!) and win the 2016 US Presidential Election. Whether it’s wishful thinking or a calculated bet, £450 is the largest bet we’ve seen on her in the last 24 hours.
Finger’s crossed for a Sussex win today as they face Hampshire from 14:00 in the Royal London One-Day Cup. One punter has had £300 on bottom side Sussex to beat second from bottom Hampshire and go above them in the table. Come on you Sharks!
With the Olympics just around the corner and people beginning to get all patriotic, a number of Team GB athletes have been amongst the bets of late. The Oddschecker bet slip saw one punter place £280 on Katarina Johnson-Thompson to take home a Gold in the Heptathlon in Rio. Fingers crossed!
