12/1 Konchek the July Stakes bet

© 2012 Daily Sport Limited

Advertise and Legends Of War dominate the betting for today’s July Stakes at Newmarket (14.25) and that makes the 12/1 on offer about Koncheck look too big and each-way value.

Clive Cox’s colt scored in good style on debut here and then ran very well when a 3/4 length third to Vintage Brut in the Listed 5f National Stakes at Sandown.

After losing ground dwelling at the start but stayed on very strongly to be gaining all the way to the line.

It was a fine effort given how the race panned out and Kochek again did all his best work late on last time out when finish a never nearer two length fifth of 10 to Shang Shan Shang in the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Judge on those efforts Koncheck shoud relish the step up to 6f in this.

He looks capable of outrunning his odds and making his presence felt and I think he is overpriced and should be in single figures.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Konchek (12/1 bet365 – BOG, enhanced place terms 1/4 odds 1,2,3)
