    Quote from William Hill Bookmakers

    The firm still make good to soft the favourite in their market, with a mainly mild week anticipated in Gloucester.

    However, they have been forced to cut the odds of soft going predominating to 13-8 (from an initial 11-4), due to popular demand.

    "The going at the Festival hasn't been heavy for almost two decades, but that hasn't stopped punters quite literally pouring their money onto the ground being softer than good on the opening day," explained spokesman Tony Kenny.

    "The ground is crucial to the plans of many of the leading contenders at the Festival.

    "And with soft ground now a possibility, we expect to see a lot more money for horses that enjoy any ease in the ground."

    Willim hills odds: 4-5 Good To Soft, 13-8 Soft, 6-1 Heavy, 10-1 Good, 200-1 Good To Firm.
