Eastwoods offer a McCartney Special….

Eastwoods are backing Bob McCartney to take one seat 1/2 on, but there’s not much given for him taking no seats at all – 5/4 against. For those (in the UUP?) hoping he will take four, put your money down and Mr Eastwood will pay out at a rate of 100/1… However, he clearly believes two seats is possible at 9/2, and three might even be a nice little earner given perfect storm conditions at 20/1..Bob McCartney to win …

no seats 5/4

at least 1 seat 1/2

at least 2 seats 9/2

at least 3 seats 20/1

at least 4 seats 100/1
