John Smith's Cup Betting

The John Smith's Cup is the highlight of the John Smith's Cup meeting at York, which also includes the Group Three Summer Stakes. There is no shortage of quality racing to bet on at the two-day meeting in July and the John Smith's Cup, which takes place on the second day of the meeting, always attracts plenty of quality.

It is a heritage handicap race for thoroughbred aged three years old and over, with entries taking on the race distance of one mile and 208 yards. It is an exciting part of the flat racing season and when looking at the ante-post betting it could be worth noting a few trends.

The race has been won by four year olds several times during the past 10 years, while Richard Fahey has trained multiple winners and entries from his stables are always well respected.

Other heritage handicap races during the horse racing season include:

Victoria Cup | Old Newton Cup | Cesarewitch
