Shea Shea head the betting for Saturday’s July Cup at Newmarket as the South African raider looks to go one better than his impressive 2nd at Royal Ascot.

The July Cup is one of the most anticipated sprint races of the season and Saturday’s renewal looks as hot as the current climate in England. The most anticipated sprint in Europe pits together some of the fastest horses in the world as they dash the 6f at racing Headquarters.
Shea Shea, a best betting odds 4/1 (Coral) heads the betting ahead of Lethal Force at 9/2 and Society Rock, also best price with Coral at 5/1. Gale Force Ten is 13/2 (Paddy Power) and Shea Shea’s Royal Ascot conqueror Sole Power is 10/1 (Bet Victor). Slade Power is 12/1 ahead of Hamza and Kyrpton Factor.
Shea Shea did everything but get his head in front at Royal Ascot as he was beaten by Sole Power, both crossing the line on opposite sides of the race track. Arguably Shea Shea would have nosed ahead if they were racing together making Mike De Kock’s stable star justifiable favourite for Saturday’s race, as long as he handles the extra furlong.
Aiden O’Brien once again has a strong hand in a Group One in the shape of Gale Force Ten and after his Jersey Stakes success last month the Ballydoyle resident could be a shrewd each-way bet at his current price of 13/2 (Paddy Power).
He has all the attributes to go well on Saturday and will be a popular choice with punters, as will the Royal Ascot hero Sole Power. His thrilling victory over Shea Shea confirmed him as one of the top sprinters in the world but 5f is his optimum and this 6f race could once again stretch him.
Another rival to Shea Shea will be the impressive Lethal Force who lit up Royal Ascot in the Golden Jubilee with a devastating performance. His price of 9/2 seems a fair one and he should be right there with a bit of luck in running.
