Day three of Royal Ascot (Thursday 17 June) is Gold Cup day, and it’s set to be a good one. The Group One race is run over 2m4f and Stradivarius (pictured winning this race last year) will be looking to equal Yeats’ record four wins in the race under Frankie Dettori, who will be looking for a 76th Royal Ascot victory. Here’s the Royal Ascot betting day three Gold Cup runners and riders. There’s some support coming in for Spanish Mission, who is trained by Andrew Balding, but is he good enough to overturn Stadivarius?
