The 2020 July Cup is going to feature some of the UK's best sprinting thoroughbreds and the form of the market leaders is incredible.

The Newmarket July Festival main event is a great race and we have looked at the betting field and made our top predictions.

Advertise heads the market for the 2020 July Cup but there's some quality types quoted at single-figures with bookmakers.

As always, it should be a terrific edition of the July Cup.

2020 July Cup Best Bet - Advertise @ 4.00


Advertise comes into the 2019 July Cup in good form having won the Group 1 Commonwealth Cup during the Royal Ascot Festival.

Trained by Martyn Meade, the three-year-old colt by Showcasing has now won four of his seven career starts and he looks a nice type on the rise. He was able to turn around a poor effort in the 2000 Guineas and that's the sign of a good horse.

In his three career defeats, he has been bested only by the likes of Calyx, Too Darn Hot and Magna Grecia. He deserves to be favourite for this and punters are getting odds worth taking.

We're expecting the 4.00 to shorten as the July Cup nears.

2020 July Cup Best Each Way - Cape Byron @ 6.50


Cape Byron is also in hot form after capturing his last two starts. The experienced five-year-old has beaten fields of 26 at his last two starts and that's not easy to do.

His most recent win came in the Wokington Stakes which is a step below this level of racing, but the confidence is up with this son of Shamardal.

Roger Varian lines up the gelding which has yet to be tested at Group 1 grade, but he's going well enough to score a minor upset in the July Cup.

Punters are rallying around Cape Byron and he should be included in selections.

2020 July Cup Best Roughie - Limato @ 15.00


Punters should stick with Limato as he comes into this after posting a win at Newmarket. The seven-year-old isn't getting any younger but he looked good last time out.

He's a 13-time winner who finished 11th in this race last year behind US Navy Flag, but he's capable of improving on that effort. He has remained unbeaten at Newmarket in his last two starts there and that's form worth taking note of.

Bookmakers are offering each-way odds.

2020 July Cup Include in Multiples - So Perfect @ 21.00


Often punters need a runner to include in their trifecta and first-four bets. So Perfect is a good runner to include considering the odds on offer.

The O'Brien-trained three-year-old is coming off a disappointing run at Ascot but she scored a good win at Naas prior to that and could add some value here.

Best Bet: Advertise - 4.00 @ bet365
Best Each Way: Cape Byron - 6.50 @ bet365
Best Roughie: Limato - 15.00 @ bet365
Include in Multiples: So Perfect - 21.00 @ bet365
