Limato 3/1 for Commonwealth Cup

Limato is William Hill’s 3/1 favourite from 9/2 for the Commonwealth Cup after winning the Merribelle Stable Pavilion Stakes at Ascot. William Hill have also shortened runner-up Tendu to 12-1 from 16-1 after a creditable run, while third placed Adaay is unchanged at 25-1.

“Limato holds the keys to the Commonwealth and it would now take something special to topple him as favourite,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
