iBet: Toronado to blow away rivals in the Craven

Gareth Purnell

Craven Stakes, Newmarket, 4.05pm

Back Toronado at even money for the Craven Stakes and at 8/1 each way for the 2,000 Guineas

Toronado is expected to give weight away all-round in the Craven Stakes on Thursday. On what it’s said he is doing as home, the unbeaten colt is one of the best horses the Richard Hannon stable have had for many a year and is expected to win the £65,000 Craven run over the Rowley Mile today before going to the 2,000 Guineas. He is now best priced 8/1 having been steadily backed in from 16-1 around a month ago and although 6/4 favourite Dawn Approach is all the rage, Toronado may be a good deal shorter after the Craven Stakes and looks a value each way bet for the classic at the price.


Manchester United have been made 9/4 favourites to land Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao in the summer with Manchester City 6/1. There has been money for Wayne Rooney to make way – it’s just 5/6 that French champions elect PSG will be his next club.
