How to bet on the John Smith’s Cup 2023

John Smith’s Cup 2023
Mon 10th July 2023
York Racecourse

The John Smith’s Cup was previously called the Magnet Cup until 1988 and it is a handicap race that is run at the beginning of July each year. It has been taking place since 1960 and there is a £200,000 prize purse on offer. John Smith’s Brewery has been the main sponsor for this race ever since it started, which makes it flat racing’s longest active commercial partnership and also in all of racing.

For races at York, generally, the ground conditions will play a big factor in the outcome of the race. As the John Smith’s Cup takes place in July, the conditions are usually decent, leading for strong runners, with early leaders often separating from the pack, with the rest of the field usually struggling to bridge this gap as the race goes on.
