Thursday brings one of the most eagerly anticipated races of Royal Ascot 2015: the Gold Cup. Open to runners four or older, a total of 14 horses will participate in the 16:20 race worth more than £400,000.
For this enormous race, we have checked out the hottest prospects by analysing the free horse racing naps published by the Guardian, the Racing Post, and Sky Sports. Good to firm surface conditions are currently expected, with the weather set to remain calm.
Forgotten Rules is favourite at 9/4 after winning a perfect four from four in its career. Mizzou is quite fancied at 4/1, and a winner of four from six. There is a chance for Mizzou because Forgotten rules is untested on good to firm surfaces.
On form with three wins from its past form, Trip To Paris is a worthy outsider at odds of 10/1. An each-way bet would more sense for Trip To Paris.
