Racing League LATEST odds: Week One results produce huge swings

THE Racing League bolted up with a bang at Newcastle.

And it turns out the bookies were right straight away as the pre-competition favourites surged to the top of the leaderboard – but there were huge changes elsewhere.

The Racing League got off to a belter on Thursday night

Frankie Dettori was busy at Glorious Goodwood on Thursday.

But that did not stop his Newmarket Red team from picking up the most points on the night – despite not winning a race.

Earmarked by bookies as the favourites before the first evening of racing, the top team made up of trainers John Gosden, Robert Cowell, Sir Mark Prescott and David Simcock showed their hand.

They had three second-placed finishes and two thirds as they collected 85 points from a possible 150.

That puts them seven points clear of team talkSPORT, who won race four with hot favourite Bonneval for trainer James Fanshawe and jockey Jack Mitchell.

As a result, Newmarket Red shortened as favourites to 9-4 from 11-4.

But the eyecatchers were eToro Racing who plummeted to 6-1 from 12-1 and Team Racehorse Lotto into 12-1 from 33-1.

What the bookies say

Betfair spokesman Barry Orr commented: “What a magic opening night for the Racing League in Newcastle and the Newmarket Red team showed their class and how difficult they will to beat in this format.

“They have been backed from 11-4 to 9-4 but don’t forget about eToro Racing who also had a good start and have halved in price from 12-1 to 6-1.

“It’s all set up nicely for next Thursday.”
