Limato will be hot in July to join the racing legends


By Anita Chambers

Limato can join an elite band by notching up back-to-back victories in the Darley July Cup at Newmarket today. Only Abernant (1949 and 1950) and Right Boy (1958 and 1959) have succeeded in defending their crown in the post-war years and if Limato is to join those two legends of the turf, he will have to conquer nine rivals, including the hot favourite Caravaggio.

If there are any chinks in the armour of Caravaggio, Limato can be relied upon to expose them in what looks certain to be an intriguing contest.
