BOOKIES OFF THE HOOK AS SEABASS NATIONAL GAMBLE IS FOILED

Britain’s bookmakers have been spared a multi-million pound Grand National payout today, after a huge public gamble on Seabass, ridden by Katie Walsh, was foiled by a win for 33-1 outsider Neptune Collonges.  Seabass was backed from 20-1 down to a starting price of 8-1 joint-favourite, but the nine-year-old finished third, to the relief of the bookies.

“The gamble on Seabass caught us totally by surprise, as the public put their faith in Katie Walsh, and had she become the first lady to ride the winner of the world’s most famous race, we would have been paying out for a week!” said Coral’s David Stevens.

“Luckily for us, we were let off the hook, as the 33-1 shot Neptune Collonges snatched a dramatic victory right on the line, sparing the betting industry a multi-million pound payout,” added Stevens.
