Passage cleared for Fame - 7/4 fav for Gold Cup
Fame And Glory is 7-4 favourite with William Hill for the Royal Ascot Gold Cup after last year's winner Rite Of Passage did not feature amongst the six-day acceptors.
Yorkshire Cup winner Duncan is next in the betting at 6-1, with Godolphin's Holberg, sixth in the Melbourne Cup, available at 10-1.
Lucy Rhodes, spokeswoman for William Hill, said ‘With Rite Of Passage now unable to take his chance at the double, the path is clear for Fame And Glory to fly the flag held for so long by Yeats, providing he can handle the extra distance'
