BetVictor have introduced Long Distance Cup winner Rite Of Passage into their 2013 Ascot Gold Cup betting as 7/1 favourite with Colour Vision, Mount Athos, Times Up and Saddlers Rock at 8/1.
Spokesperson Charlie McCann told betrescue.com: “Another magnificent training performance by Irish legend Dermot Weld whose 8-y-old was having only his second start since taking the Royal Ascot Blue Riband back in 2010. Eight wins from 12 careers starts is not exactly Frankelesque but when Weld can get the gelding to the track he is top class. ”
