St George 5/2 For 2017 Repeat

Order Of St George is 5/2 for a 2017 Ascot Gold Cup repeat win after scoring at the Royal track on Thursday. The Aidan O’Brien-trained winner is quoted at 14/1 for this year’s Melbourne Cup, a race that part-owner Lloyd Williams has a great affinity with.

“Order Of St George has shown what an incredible animal he is and we will be wary of any lumpy bets on such a classy individual, whether they be for next year’s Gold Cup or a trip to Australia,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
