Friday's Racing Podcast
The Newmarket July Festival draws to a close with the ever-fiendish July Cup, a Group 1 sprint with a truly international flavour. Taking on the home team, headed by last years winner Fleeting Spirit, is Aussie bred and Irish trained Starspangledbanner, American Kinsale King, Australians Nicconi and Alverta and French former winner of this race Marchand D'or is joined by fellow countymate Varenar. A stupendous line-up if ever I saw one.
The rest of Friday lives up to that billing with cards from the heady heights of Ascot, Chester, York, Newbury and Chepstow providing an excellent supporting cast.
The podcast features the thoughts of Darren Owen and Ross Brierley, who have a look at the Newmarket card in detail, whilst Cornelius Lysaght also picks out his fancies at HQ on Friday afternoon.
