Can English V Italian jockeys on ITV Racing predict the Euro 2020 Final?

Sunday sees the conclusion of Euro 2020 as England take on Italy at Wembley. You can find all the best bets for the final of Euro 2020 on our sister site freesupertips but we also thought we’d have a go at predicting the final via ITV Racing.

England take on Italy at both York and Newmarket on Saturday. Jim Crowley takes on Andrea Atzeni at York while William Buick will battle Frankie Dettori at Newmarket. But who will win? Let’s find out.


2.20 York – John Smith’s Silver Cup Stakes

Hukum (England) V Fujiara Prince (Italy) kick things off and what a clash this should be. There is very little between the pair on the pick of their form but the latter has not been seen in 2021 and that can prove the difference. Hukum was an excellent third in the Hardwicke at Royal Ascot and his race fitness gives him the edge.

1-0 England


3.15 Newmarket – bet365 Superlative Stakes

Native Trail (England) against Dhabab (Italy) in a juvenile contest. The former looked a very smart performer in the making when winning on his debut at Sandown. That bare form is some way behind what the John Gosden-trained colt achieved in the Coventry at Royal Ascot and he gets the nod.

Italy equalise 1-1


4.05 York – John Smith’s Cup Handicap

Always one of the most competitive handicaps of the season sees Dawaam (England) taking on Ascension (Italy.) The former is well treated here, officially eight pounds well in on his new mark kicking in after the weights for this race were framed. Ascension has to prove himself over this trip, trying it for the first time which makes Dawaam the more likely.

England take the lead again, 2-1


4.25 Newmarket – Darley July Cup Stakes

The big contest of the day, a Group 1 contest that sees Creative Force (England) take on Extravagant Kid (Italy) for the glory. The latter won a Group 1 in Meydan over this trip but that was a weak race for the grade. Creative Force would probably appreciate a touch more cut in the ground but he is a rapid improver. This is much closer than the market suggests but it’s England who bundle one over the line in stoppage time to secure the win.

They think it’s all over…it is now! England win Euro 2020 3-1 over Italy.
