Royal Ascot Gold Cup contenders and betting odds

Two days left to one of the big June events at the Ascot Racecourse - the Ascot Gold-Cup.

Royal Ascot Gold Cup contenders and betting odds Sixteen four-year-old and above thoroughbreds will run the distance of 2 miles 4 furlongs on Thursday 21st at the Ascot Racecourse. The Ascot Gold Cup is one of the legs in the Stayers' Triple Crown and will be viewed by millions all over the world.

 We checked with the U.K. online sportsbooks to see which one offers the best betting odds on the Ascot Gold Cup and the British website Bet365 (click to open) is the leader. The oddsmaker's favorite to win the 2007 Ascot Gold Cup is "Yeats", the same horse which won the last year's competition.

 "Yeats" was foaled on April 23, 2001 at Derrinstown Stud, and is owned by John Magnier. In 2004 Yeats was favourite for the Epsom Derby, but met with a setback just days before the race and missed the rest of the season. At the 2006 Ascot Gold Cup Yeats won by 4 lengths from Prix du Cadran winner Reefscape. It is yet unknown who will ride Yeats for the 2007 Ascot Gold Cup. The betting odds on Yeats are 4/6.

 Here is the full list of the Royal Ascot Gold Cup contenders on Thursday with the odds on winning the race:

Yeats 4/6
Sergeant Cecil 5/1
Geordieland 11/1
Montare 14/1
Cherry Mix 16/1
Lord Du Sud 16/1
Allegretto 20/1
Baddam 20/1
Le Miracle 20/1
Tungsten Strike 33/1
Bulwark 40/1
Rising Cross 40/1
The Last Drop 50/1
Finalmente 100/1

 Scorpion and Diamond Quest will also race for the Ascot Gold Cup but we did not find odds published on these two contenders.

The 2007 Ascot Gold Cup will start on Thursday, June 21st at 3:45 pm at the Royal Ascot.
