Muhaarar outright favourite for July Cup

Bookmakers celebrated the result of the inaugural Commonwealth Cup as Muhaarar denied the well-backed Limato, with the worst potential result Hootenanny well out of the frame.

Muhaarar is now a 5-1 chance for the July Cup with William Hill.

 “Muhaarar has shown a lot of speed to land the Commonwealth Cup and the July Cup beckons for a very classy winner,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
