Lockinge Stakes – Ribchester vs Galileo Gold?

Last year’s 2000 Guineas hero Galileo Gold is 7/2 to win the Lockinge Stakes at Newbury on Saturday. Ribchester is the 9/4 favourite and Lightning Spear offered at 9/2.

“The lockinge stakes looks like a cracking race and we have seen good support for the first four in the betting,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. “We expect Galileo Gold to shorten in the next 24hrs.”
