4.35 Newmarket 6F July Cup Group 1 (Sat 9th July )

Another very busy Saturday with six meetings in Uk .Going concentrate on the feature race of the day the £500,000 July Cup at Newmarket .

18 runners declared for cracking group one sprint at Newmarket ,on ground described as good/firm .This looks very competitive contest ,with the three main contenders Limato ,Magical Memory & Twilight Son .

LIMATO : High class 4-Y-0 gelding ,winning 6 out 10 .Has excellent record over 6F (2211111) .Finished creditable 4TH in 1 mile Lockinge Stakes last time behind Belardo ,appeared not to stay the 1 mile trip . The return to 6 furlongs on fast ground will suit .

MAGICAL MEMORY : Progressive sort winning 6 out 16 .Been in good form this season ,winning the Abernant Stakes & Duke Of York stakes .Also finished close 4TH in Diamond Jubilee stakes at Royal Ascot last time ,behind Twilight Son .Should be thereabouts .

TWILIGHT SON :Useful sort ,winning 6 out 8 ,including winning G1 Diamond Jubilee stakes at Royal Ascot last time ,under excellent Ryan Moore ride ,in blanket finish with 1 lengh separating the first five home .Obvious claims ,though all his best form has been on easier ground . 

VERDICT : LIMATO made promising reappearance in Lockinge stakes, and this drop back in trip should suit .Showed some useful form last season in G1 company ,and this race should be run to suit ,with the uphill finish also in his favour .Odds around 6-1 look solid each-way value,especially with Skybet paying five places .
