BIGGEST ROYAL BABY BET SO FAR PROMPTS CUT AS JUNE BIRTH BACKED

Coral bookmakers have today been forced to slash the price of a Royal June baby, after taking a single bet of £1,000 at 10-1 (to win £10,000), the biggest bet taken so far on the Royal birth. They are now 7-1.

The cash bet was taken in a Central London betting shop, and although a mid-July birth has been predicted by the experts, there seems a lot of interest in an early delivery report Coral.

Spokesman Gary Burton said, “When we formed the market most of the early betting centred around the 17th July of course, but since then most of the money has either been for a late birth in August, or, as we have seen in the last 24 hours, a June delivery, we’ve taken more bets on that than all other dates put together and now face our worst pay-out.”

Burton believes a possible explanation for the heightened interest this week could be down to Coronation Street, and the early delivery of Tina’s baby on the popular soap.

“Betting interest started to pick up immediately after her premature birth on the show this week,” added Burton.
