Starman 4/1 FAV in Newmarket July Cup Racing Odds

Only narrowly heading up the field in Newmarket July Cup racing odds is STARMAN at 4/1* (odds recorded at 21:55 GMT on July 9th, 2021 at Coral).

He is on the up at the moment and picked up a win in the Duke Of York Stakes last month. That further raised his status.

That Group 2 win at York was by a neck over Nahar. But there is further progress to come from Ed Walker’s four year old who has won four of five racetrack appearances.

This is a very stiff field however and Starman will need to find that extra bit of progress.



Dragon Symbol the one to watch?

DRAGON SYMBOL crossed the line first in the Commonwealth Cup but was then disqualified. That would have been his fifth win in six runs.

Dragon Symbol scored in each of his first four runs and has now stepped up and proven his ability in Group company the last two.

That Royal Ascot disqualification was a blow, but it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him bounce straight back.

He looks to be going from strength to strength still and is a good 9/2 selection for this effort* (odds recorded at 21:55 GMT on July 9th, 2021 at Coral).

Oxted likely to be a big player

OXTED looks like he is going to be a big danger in this field as well. He arrives in winning form having taken a victory in the King’s Stand.

That Royal Ascot score saw Oxted well on top at the finish and he looked better than ever in that effort.

Without question, Oxted is one of the top sprinters around. It did take him a little while to get going this season, but that Royal Ascot score confirms fitness and form.

Oxted also won this race last year as well, so knows what this is all about. He has strong claims and could add to a good track record here at Newmarket.

There is a quote of 9/2 on Oxted in Newmarket July Cup Stakes racing odds* (odds recorded at 21:55 GMT on July 9th, 2021 at Coral).

Can Rohaan add to his winning streak?

ROHAAN has a pretty similar profile to that of Starman and therefore we expect to see him in the thick of things at Newmarket on the weekend.

He completed a hattrick last time out by picking up the Wokingham. He is up 4lb from that now but easily belongs at this top level.

Rohaan looks to be on an upward curve of form and his yard is pulling more and more out of him.

Place claims are definitely there from a quote of 7/1 in racing odds* (odds recorded at 21:55 GMT on July 9th, 2021 at Coral).

Can Glen Shiel get the run right?

A dangerous front-runner in this exciting field is GLEN SHIEL. He collected five wins last year in his efforts and one of those was at Ascot in the Champions Sprint.

On his latest effort, he competed in the Diamond Jubilee, delivering his best run yet. He left everything on the track in that one.

If he is allowed to get to the front and dominate from there, then Glen Shiel is going to be a huge threat.

There is a quote of 16/1 on him to get this run just right* (odds recorded at 21:55 GMT on July 9th, 2021 at Coral).

Others to note

EMARAATY ANA is one of the top sprinters around, but he hasn’t been at his best for some reason this season. Not in a Group company anyway. Talented and able, but needs a big bounce-back now.

EXTRAVAGANT KID isn’t without a shout here. He arrives back in action following a terrific third-place finish in the King’s Stand at Royal Ascot.

CHIL CHIL is looking to secure a hattrick. She picked up the Chipchase Stakes last time out at Newcastle. More is going to be needed, but she’s not totally without a chance.

CREATIVE FORCE may have a lot more to offer as well. He has won all four runs this season, culminating in the Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot comfortably.

Predictions & Tips for Newmarket July Cup Racing Odds

This is an excellent contest and our pick is going to be DRAGON SYMBOL at 11/2* (odds recorded at 21:55 GMT on July 9th, 2021 at Coral).

He continued some fine form in reaching the line first at the Commonwealth Cup, only for the win to be stripped from him. He should be back in the thick of things once more.

We do think that it’s worth having a look at the 7/1 odds of CREATIVE FORCE who is just completely thriving at the moment and deserves a place on the shortlist* (odds recorded at 21:55 GMT on July 9th, 2021 at Coral).

The final shortlist selection will be ROHAAN from the same 7/1 quote as he looks to have quite a bit to offer* (odds recorded at 21:55 GMT on July 9th, 2021 at Coral).
