Betting Tip: Romsdal @ 9/4 with bet365

Top Tug’s stablemate Arab Spring had ROMSDAL behind in third when winning last month’s Group 3 John Porter at Newbury and that latter horse is a strong fancy in this afternoon’s feature on the Knavesmire, the Yorkshire Cup over 1m6f. John Gosden’s colt showed top class form at three, with placed efforts in the Derby (third to Australia) and St Leger (second to Kingston Hill) to his name, and he perhaps paid the price for setting only a modest gallop in the 1m4f John Porter, given the way he was closing again at the line. Today’s longer trip and more galloping track should suit him down to the ground and his trainer is having a fine meeting with three winners, including a 1-2 in the Dante.

With Snow Sky held on St Leger form and likely to need his comeback run, the biggest danger looks to be Dubai Gold Cup Brown Panther. The 4lb he has to concede the selection might prove decisive.
