Never Can Tell is the new 9-2 (from 6-1) favourite with Coral for the Chester Cup, following the final declarations for Wednesday’s race.
Last year’s winner, Overturn, is 5-1 second favourite for a repeat success, while Gulf Of Naples has been eased to 6-1 (from 5-1), after a draw that saw him allocated the widest stall of all, 19.
“Although the Chester Cup is run over 2 1/4 miles, the draw is crucial at the Roodee, and while Never Can Tell should be OK coming from stall 6, Gulf Of Naples’ backers have been done no favours with the widest draw of all, and that is reflected in the revised betting,” Coral‘s David Stevens told betrescue.com
