Which Horse Will Win The Liverpool City Cup

The best way to pick who will win the Liverpool City Cup is to take into account the form, assess the barriers, consider the weight the horse will carry, among other factors.

Additional factors to take into considerations are as follows:

  • Black Type History – Some of the entrants will be looking to win their first Group level race, so don’t discount the latest Principal and Listed race results.
  • Unlucky Barriers – Double digit barriers add a bit of a hurdle for those trying to get a good start. Make sure your runner has enough power to overcome the disadvantage.
