Caravaggio to storm to July Cup victory at Newmarket

Saturday 15th July, 2017 - 4:35pm Newmarket - July Cup

Aidan O'Brien hasn't tasted victory in the July Cup since Starspangledbanner stormed to glory in 2010, but the master of Ballydoyle has a sensational chance of recapturing the coveted Group 1 sprint on Saturday afternoon when he unleashes the unbeaten Caravaggio, who was a stunning winner at Royal Ascot last month, and will aim to enhance his already lofty reputation at Newmaket.

  • Caravaggio beat Harry Angel in Commonwealth Cup last month
  • The Tin Man beat Tasleet and Limato in Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot
  • Muhaarar was last three-year-old to win this race in 2015

Tips Caravaggio to win    Best Bet @ 11 / 10  

Caravaggio The One To Beat

Well-fancied for the Commonwealth Cup at the Royal meeting, Caravaggio looked to have his work cut out with two furlongs to go, as he struggled to reel in Blue Point and Harry Angel, but once Ryan Moore had got busy on the son of Scat Daddy, he picked up in stunning fashion to eventually win going away by three-quarters-of-a-length.

A best-priced 11/10 with Sky Bet Bookmakers for this showpiece race at Flat HQ, Caravaggio will no doubt sit off a fast pace once again, and with only ten runners should face no significant traffic problems, so if Moore can hold him in a fairly positive position in the early part of the race, he can then unleash his deadly turn of foot, and he should bound to victory to extend his unbeaten run to seven races.

Main Dangers

Limato (5/1 with bet365) was a fine winner of this race 12 months ago, but the Henry Candy-trained raider will not only have a tougher rival in the shape of the aforementioned Caravaggio, but he will have to turn the Diamond Jubilee Stakes form around with The Tin Man (6/1 with Sky Bet), who was a stunning winner at Royal Ascot last month, and makes more appeal here.

Clive Cox's Harry Angel put up a career best when second to Caravaggio in the Commonwealth Cup, but it's hard to see the 7/1 chance with Betfair Sportsbook turning that form around, and while he will try to pull out an unassailable lead over his three-year-old adversary, you have to feel that Caravaggio will pick him up again, but receiving weight from their elder rivals this three-year-old duo could pull clear of the field.

Best Of The Rest

Tasleet put up a career best when finishing second to The Tin Man in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes, but the Duke Of York hero has failed to get his head in front on his previous visits to Newmarket, so at 9/1 with Sky Bet could be worth taking on, while the rest of the field are huge prices to land a shock victory.

Kevin Ryan's Brando (25/1) was last of 12th behind Tasleet at York last time out, and appears to lack the class he showed last season, while Growl (40/1) and Mr Lupton (66/1) will find this red-hot sprint too hot, and will been see out the back in a race that can go the way of the red-hot favourite.
