William Hill make Fame And Glory their 7-4 favourite for the Ascot Gold Cup after last year’s winner Rite Of Passage didn’t 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.
William Hill‘s Lucy Rhodes told betrescue.com: ‘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’
