2020 saw outsider Count Zero take out the feature with a brilliant ride from Luke 'Stumpy' Williams in what was a memorable rendition of the great race.

This year, stablemates Wil John and Heberite head the market for the Jericho Cup.

2021 Jericho Cup Tips


Jericho Cup 2021 Best Bet - Heberite

This bold front-runner from the Maher/Eustace stable deserves to have a little more respect in the market and although is the second favourite, he should be within half a point of Wil John

His win at Ararat gets better the more I watch it, really stretching out over 3800m and looking as if he would even eat up more ground which is ideal coming into this event.

Tom Ryan now takes the mount and will let Heberite stride out early, find his feet and hopefully get a good mile and a quarter breather, before ramping it up and making this a true staying test.

Jericho Cup 2021 Next Best Bet - Wil John

As far as natural flat ability goes, he is the class runner in the race, and as far as natural jumping ability goes, he also is the best horse in the race, but at the price I feel he should be a little closer to his stable mate.

Three starts back he was the winner of the Grand National Hurdle and two back was a winner at Caulfield over 2400m.

That form simply jumps off the page here, but 4600m on the flat I do feel brings him back to Heberite and it may just come down to a matter of who stays the trip.

Jericho Cup 2021 Value Bet - Master Poet

He is a bit of a plodder, but you don't need a brilliant turn-of-foot to win a Jericho Cup over 4600m.

Although beaten 16 lengths into second spot at The Valley last start behind True Marvel, the winner was classes above them and he did come home nicely, looking as if he is going to stay all day.

Although beaten some big margins by the likes of Heberite and Will To Excel, 4600m is a different beast as we saw with Count Zero last year, so do not be shocked to see Master Poet try and grind these into the ground from the half-way mark.
