|(London, 11/6/04) Royal Ascot, the world’s most famous race meeting, gets under way next week. With over £3 million in prize money on offer and a total of sixteen Group races, Royal Ascot week is a busy time for Betfair and its punters. |
Beyond the customary Win, Place, Winning Distance and Forecast markets a series of special markets will be available, including Top Jockey, Biggest SP, Winning Distances and many more.
“We hope Royal Ascot will underline how Betfair leads the pack when it comes to offering new and exciting markets punters want to bet on,” said Betfair spokesperson Georgina Hard.
A total of nearly £40 million was matched during the meeting last year and Betfair are hoping to exceed this in what could be a bumper week with the start of Euro 2004.
