Gulf Of Naples 9/1 favourite for Northumberland Plate
Gulf Of Naples, narrowly out on an Ascot Gold Cup placing on Thursday, is 9-1 favourite with William Hill for the John Smith's Northumberland Plate.
Ile De Re, who provided Donald McCain with the Chester Cup one-two last month behind 2010 winner Overturn, is next in the betting at 10-1 alongside Sir Mark Prescott's Motivado.
Cesarewitch fourth Mount Athos shares a 12-1 quote with reigning Northumberland Plate champion Tominator.
William Hill spokeswoman Lucy Rhodes said "The lightly-raced Gulf Of Naples tops another highly-competitive renewal following his superb effort to finish a close-up fourth in the Ascot Gold Cup"
