The July Cup is one of the biggest sprint races of the season, with 6f at Newmarket awaiting the quickest horses on the block.

It is a battle of the generations as the leading three-year-olds take on older rivals, which means a whole host of form lines will be brought to table.

Alcohol Free came out on top in last year’s renewal but the daughter of No Nay Never will not return to defend her crown after being sold to Australian connections.

You can run the rule over our antepost July Cup odds on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise all the key details about this year’s renewal can be found below.

Shaquille is the favourite with Paddy Power for the July Cup after overcoming a dreadful start to land the Group 1 Commonwealth Cup.

Little Big Bear is next in our antepost betting as the Ballydoyle beast bids to reverse the form with the fav from Royal Ascot.

Azure Blue is also prominent in our early market as the four-year-old filly is a bit of a Newmarket specialist after rattling off four wins from five starts over course and distance.
