Perfect Power 5/2 FAV in July Cup Stakes Racing Odds

After an excellent score in the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot, Perfect Power brings some big claims.

He was back in form for that one after failing to stay the longer 1m task at the 2000 Guineas.

The score for Perfect Power at Ascot was his fourth in his last five.

The 3-year-old is pitched into action against some elders for the first time on Saturday, which is going to offer a sterner test.

But Perfect Power looks the business and an absolute class act on his day.

Having gotten off the mark at the top level on his latest run, Perfect Power has big claims as the 5/2 favourite in July Cup Stakes odds* (odds recorded at 19:31 GMT on 8th July 2022 at Bet365).

Perfect Power


Artorius brings strong claims

There are strong claims from ARTORIUS on Saturday as he looks to add to his Group 1 tally.

It’s been a while since he got on the scoreboard, but his latest run was very good.

Artorius took on the Platinum Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot and came on strong at the end.

It was a credible third-place finish for him.

If the pace is good and strong in this one on Saturday, Artorius has claims at 9/2* (odds recorded at 19:31 GMT on 8th July 2022 at Bet365).

Creative Force rates as a danger

There should also be a bold bid coming in from CREATIVE FORCE who was a runner-up last time out.

That was in the Platinum Jubilee at Royal Ascot in which he went very close.

He was toppled there by his stablemate Naval Crown, who Creative Force is up against again on the weekend.

Creative Force won the Champion Sprint Stakes last year, let’s not forget.

He warrants plenty of respect at 11/2 in July Cup Stakes racing tips* (odds recorded at 19:31 GMT on 8th July 2022 at Bet365).

Naval Crown can get in the picture

Because of the Platinum Jubilee win that NAVAL CROWN took over some of these, he commands respect.

He got the better of Creative Force by a neck at Royal Ascot in a thrilling contest.

That took his tally to two wins in four this season, and his overall form reads very well.

Naval Crown can make his presence felt in a wonderfully competitive renewal of the July Cup.

He enters the frame at 13/2 in racing odds* (odds recorded at 19:31 GMT on 8th July 2022 at Bet365)

Flaming Rib not to be written off

FLAMING RIB is a good consistent one and the smart colt has every chance of getting himself involved.

The latest success that Flamingt Rib posed was in May when he got his nose in front at Chester.

Since then it has been back-to-back runners-up finishes for him.

The latter of those was at Royal Ascot when he followed Perfect Power home in the Commonwealth cup.

Any kind of further progress from Flaming Rib gives him a chance from 10/1* (odds recorded at 19:31 GMT on 8th July 2022 at Bet365).

Best of the rest for July Cup Stakes Racing Tips

HAPPY ROMANCE had a good run at Royal Ascot recently when she was a close seventh in the Platinum Jubilee. That was a run full of credit by the filly. She needs a little more, but not a total forlorn hope for the places.

CADAMOSTO doesn’t have too many miles on the clock, but there was a very nice fourth for him in the Commonwealth Cup last time out. He’s another that has some promise but ultimately will need a huge improvement for win uprises.

ALCOHOL FREE hasn’t gotten her season going strangely. Last term she won three Group 1 fixtures so has the ability. Needs to get back on track after failing to make an impact in the Platinum Jubilee last time out.

ROMANTIC PROPOSAL is another that needs to come on a little more to figure in win purposes. But she won at Listed contest at Naas last time out and the mare has won three of her last five appearances.

Predictions & Tips for July Cup Stakes Racing Odds

The first of our July Cup Stakes racing tips is going to be PERFECT POWER at 5/2* (odds recorded at 19:31 GMT on 8th July, 2022 at Bet365).

No surprise there really as he looks the one to beat at the top level on Saturday. His big return to form at the Commonwealth Cup puts him right at the head of the main threats.

We can’t overlook CREATIVE FORCE for the July Cup tips either from a strong quote 11/2* (odds recorded at 19:31 GMT on 8th July 2022 at Bet365).

His duel with NAVAL CROWN (who is our final shortlist selection) at the Platinum Jubilee gives them both a fair shout in this one.

There may not be too much to split them again, with NAVAL CROWN at 13/2* (odds recorded at 19:31 GMT on 8th July 2022 at Bet365).
