Hills go 5/4 Hurrican Fly in the Champion Hurdle. Well almost...

Reading the comments below the story it looks like they are laying approx 20 max existing customers. Going 5/4 for the publicity then laying peanuts to punters. Shouldnt even run the story, or at least run the story of punters getting mugged off.

this is happening across the board and hills arent the only culprits. All for the bookies needing to protect their position and not lay bets of say 10k, but to advertise a bet at such a stand out price and try to encourage the punters and then rebuff them at a decent amount is just wrong
