Horse Racing: Aidan O’Brien to be top trainer at Royal Ascot?
Our traders have opened betting on the Top Trainer at Royal Ascot next week, installing Aidan O’Brien as the clear 11/10 favourite.
John Gosden is his closest rival in the betting at 9/2, ahead of Charlie Appleby at 5/1 and Mark Johnston at 6/1. Outsiders include Sir Michael Stoute at 14/1 and Wesley Ward at 16/1.
O’Brien will be taking his usual strong team to the Berkshire course for the five-day festival with plenty of punters backing his most fancied runners.
Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said: “Aidan O’Brien claimed his tenth Top Trainer title at Royal Ascot last season and looks the man they all must beat again this year.”
