Caravaggio Draws Further Clear In Guineas Betting

Caravaggio is now 5-2 favourite from 3-1 with William Hill for next year’s 2000 Guineas after an easy victory in the Keeneland Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh.

“Caravaggio was thoroughly impressive and at this stage he is firmly the one to beat in next year’s Guineas,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke. “Punters may have something of a renaissance for Caravaggio after his latest win.”
