Grand National William Hill Betting

Grand National ‘WILL’ To Cost Bookies £100 MILLION POUND PAYOUT!

Grand National favourite My Will could wipe out Britain’s bookies this weekend with victory in the famous handicap.
Betting giants William Hill estimate that over half of punters betting on the Grand National base their selections on runners’ names and fear the popular christian name connection could lead to a multi million pound bookie bashing!

Records suggest that in excess of 500,000 people in the UK hold the first name ‘William’, while nearly 300,000 have the surname ‘Williams’.
To make matters worse 7/1 favourite My Will is piloted by punters favourite Ruby Walsh and trained by the number one, Paul Nicholls.

Kate Miller, spokeswoman for Hills, said: ‘’It could be carnage for the bookies if My Will prevails on Saturday. We estimate the industry could be rocked with a payout in excess of £100million. EVERYONE out there knows someone with the name ‘Will’, it could be our worst Grand National result for the last decade.’’

*In 1999 Bobbyjo cost the bookies bundles when backed into 10/1 before romping home in the Grand National.
