Yorkshire Cup Betting Odds Comparison - York

14/05/2021 15:10:00

The Yorkshire Cup is one of the leading flat horse races at the Dante Festival, with this race taking place over a distance of one mile and six furlongs, with Stradivarius having secured a victory in 2018 as a four-year-old, while he returned to the scene of the crime a year later and triumphed again in impressive style.

Unfortunately, the horse didn’t get a chance to defend his crown last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic although it appears that the John Gosden-trained charge has a massive chance of making more history when it comes to the 2021 renewal, with the horse having already been a three-time winner of the Ascot Gold Cup.

Stradivarius Big Betting Favourite for 2021 Yorkshire Cup

Last July, Stradivarius won the Goodwood Cup for fourth consecutive occasion, obliging at betting odds of 4/7 although the horse has shown more indifferent form in recent times and it started in the Qatar Prix Foy over one mile and four furlongs when the runner was touched into second by Anthony Van Dyck.

Connections then decided to take their chances in the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe where the Gosden charge finished mid-position, while there was a really below-par performance in the Qipco British Champions Long Distance Cup where the runner finished near the back of the pack.

Perhaps the horse will kick on for the 2021 season and there was enough to like about the win in the Longines Sagaro Stakes although a strong performance will be needed to win the Yorkshire Cup.

Can Sir Ron Priestley Topple Stradivarius in Yorkshire Cup?

All good things come to an end and Sir Ron Priestley looks capable of winning the 2021 Yorkshire Cup based on recent performances, with the Mark Johnston-trained charge having returned from a lengthy lay-off to claim a couple of recent victories, with a Listed Race victory at Nottingham followed up by a triumph in the Betfair Exchange Jockey Club Stakes.

That win was over one mile and four furlongs, with racing fans now wondering whether he can challenge the great Stradivarius, while Logician is another John Gosden-trained runner and it should be noted that the horse won the 2019 St Leger and clearly has the pedigree to make an impact in this race.

Trueshan is also among the Yorkshire Cup betting favourites and the five-year-old was the winner of the Qipco British Champions Long Distance Cup last year and perhaps he looks like the each-way value in the race, with Alan King having a horse with a big chance when it comes to this York Racecourse encounter.
