Juddmonte International Stakes
The Ebor Festival kicks off to a flying start today with six races taking place 1:55pm UK time, 2:30, 3:05, 3:40, 4:20 and 4:55. The headline race is the Juddmonte International Stakes which will take place 3:40. A group one race, the Juddmonte is thought to be the most prestigious and richest race taking place in the frame of the four day Ebor Festival with a £800,000 prize.
Three year old Australia is the biggest name of this race, having had a great year in which the horse won June's Epsom Derby. In pre-race odds, bet365 offered 8/10 on Australia to win. While all contestants are dangerous, two potential names which can take on Australia are Mukhadram (11/2) and The Grey Gatsby (11/1). Another competitor, Kingfisher, is said to be in good form and bet365 offers 50/1 for him to win.
