Lady Bowthorpe has shown some very good form this season, winning the Dahlia Stakes at Newmarket before running into second place behind Palace Pier in the Lockinge.
That is enough to make her the favourite for the Duke Of Cambridge Stakes at 3/1 with 888sport but is that the right sort of price given she carries a penalty?
The FreeBets.com panel is not totally convinced.
While Peter Scudamore believes that it makes sense to keep things simple and support the best horse in the race, Charlie McCann has taken the favourite on with a couple of each way shots in Double Or Bubble at 13/2 with bet365* and Lavender’s Blue at 12/1 with BetVictor.
Ed Quigley always has his eyes on a bigger priced option and he talks up the chances of Champer Elysees at 8/1 with Betfair who is a proven Group 1 horse.
