Could Cotai Follow Mecca’s Trail?

After winning the Scarbrough Stakes at Doncaster, Cotai Glory is 16-1 with William Hill to follow the route of Mecca’s Angel and win the Nunthorpe Stakes next year. Closer to hand, Cotai Glory is 20-1 from 25-1 to win the Champions Sprint, although his trainer also has the favourite Muhaarar at 9-4 and Strath Burn at 10-1.

“Charlie Hills has a crack team of sprinters and there may be more to come from Cotai Glory,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
