With 2018 finally here, we’ve priced up an array of New Year racing specials for speculative punters.

This year’s specials revolve around Aidan O’Brien, Frankie Dettori, Matt Chapman and a certain Meghan Markle.

Before that quartet, though, it’s all about the horses themselves.

After creating history at the Cheltenham Festival in 2017, it’s 25/1 that Irish-trained horses win all four feature races at the 2018 festival.

As for Royal Ascot, we go 4/1 that American wonder-horse Winx wins any race at the meeting.

You can get 16/1 for Hayley Turner to ride a winner, while over jumps it’s 33/1 for AP McCoy to come out of retirement and have more than 20 rides under rules in 2018.

Aidan O’Brien chalked up 26 Group 1 winners in 2017 and it’s 5/1 that he breaks his own record on the flat in 2018.

We go 16/1 that the trainer wins all ten 2018 UK and Irish Classics.

Meanwhile, Meghan Markle is even-money to ride in the Queen’s carriage at Royal Ascot.

Matt Chapman has been priced at 3/1 to win HWPA Broadcaster of the Year, while Jeremy Kyle is 16/1 to be added to ITV’s racing line-up.

Away from the racecourse, both Frankie Dettori and AP McCoy are 16/1 to enter the jungle, while Bryony Frost and Harry Cobden are 16/1 to get engaged.

And with the UK’s unpredictable weather showing no signs of letting up, our traders go 16/1 for snow to fall during a race at the 2018 Cheltenham Festival.

Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said: “2017 saw plenty of record-breaking moments in racing and the odds aren’t ruling out even more historic moments in 2018.”
