Betting Tip: Belardo @ 10/1 with betvictor

Sadly, the eagerly anticipated duel between Gleneagles and Solow is off after the former horse was scratched and that has left Freddie Head’s charge with what looks a penalty kick to land his eighth race in a row and fourth consecutive Group 1. His latest success in the Queen Anne at Royal Ascot confirmed him as the star miler on the scene and he holds Cougar Mountain, Here Comes When and Night Of Thunder on that running, though the latter ran below his best and could make more of a race of it this time.

A bigger danger, though, could come from BELARDO, who is one of two three-year-old runners (the other being Bossy Guest) and therefore gets a handy 8lb age allowance. Connections will be hoping the ground doesn’t dry out too much as he’s best when there is cut in the ground, as he showed when winning the Dewhurst Stakes on soft. With his stable in top form, he could well produce a career-best effort here and is worth a small interest at 10/1 to pull off a surprise win, with enough runners for an each-way bet should you wish to take a more cautious approach.
