18 Rivals For Star Witness In UK Gr1 July Cup
Australia’s dual Gr1-winning 3YO colt Star Witness (Starcraft-Leone Chiara, by Lion Hunter) had 18 rivals remaining overnight at the “5-day confirmation stage” for Saturday’s £400,000 (A$600,000) UK Gr1 July Cup (6 furlongs) at Newmarket in England. Star Witness (who during June’s Royal Ascot carnival finished 2nd in the Gr1 King’s Stand Stakes over 5 furlongs & then 3rd in the Gr1 Golden Jubilee Stakes over 6 furlongs) is equal 3rd-favourite at 6-1 (with Bated Breath), behind Godolphin’s Delegator at 7-2 & Elzaam at 11-2.
