Gamble On Hayley Turner Continues
Hayley Turner, the most successful female jockey in the UK, rides Cavaleiro in the Epsom Derby 2012 at on Saturday.
Priced at 100/1 on Monday, Cavaleiro has been the subject of sustained support during the last few days and now trades at 40/1.
If Hayley wins the most famous Flat race in the world, William Hill faces a £3-million payout.
Cavaleiro is priced at 10/1 to finish in the first three, in a field of nine in the Investec Derby.
Hayley broke her duck in Group One races last season, winning the July Cup on Dream Ahead and the Nunthorpe on Margot Did.
In honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, Hayley will be wearing her ‘Union Jack’ breeches in some races at the Investec Derby Festival but not in the Investec Derby.
The only previous female jockey to ride in the Derby was Alex Greaves in 1996 – she finished last on Portuguese Lil.
William Hill is the Official Betting Partner of the Investec Derby Festival.
