2024 Albany Stakes Betting Odds at Ascot racecourse

Friday, 21 June 2024

There’s going to be plenty of bets placed on this Group 3 race, with the Albany Stakes for two-year-old fillies and the race has been in operation since 2002. Fairy Godmother and Mountain Breeze are jostling for position at the top of the market, with Heavens Gate and Burning Pine also in contention to hit the frame.

We could also see Enchanting Empress make an impression, with Sparkling Sea and Unexpected Issues also capable of running well over the six furlongs. The race is scheduled to go off at 2.30pm, with a prize fund of £125,000 available for this opening encounter on Day Four of the Royal Ascot meeting.

2024 Albany Stakes Tips

Fairy Godmother could be the one to beat in the Albany Stakes, with the Aidan O’Brien-trained runner being installed as the early favourite to win this six furlong encounter. Ridden by Ryan Moore last time out, the filly was able to fend off five other rivals at Naas on 19 May, with the horse triumphing by the short distance of a neck.

Previously to this, the runner was beaten by Sparkling Sea when being sent off as the 4/7 favourite in a fillies maiden race, with plenty to recommend this runner. However, the same can be said of Mountain Breeze who has registered successive wins and the Godolphin horse has to be respected based on this form.

The Charlie Appleby-trained runner was able to score at Newmarket on 18 May when delivering as the 8/13 favourite, with the filly able to overcome New Charter by two and a half lengths. That came after a victory earlier in May when a win was achieved by five furlongs to oblige as the 7/4 favourite.

This might not just be a two-horse race and Heavens Gate has the potential to upset the applecart, with this being another Aidan O’Brien-trained runner. The two-year-old claimed a victory at the Curragh last time out when beating ten other horses and that came after finishing second in her debut race at Navan.

2023 Albany Stakes Tips

The 2023 Albany Stakes is a six furlong encounter for two-year-old fillies, with Jabaara running for trainer Roger Varian and it’s one of the handler’s best chances of success at the Royal Ascot meeting. She’s only got one piece of form so far, although the 2/1 favourite was able to score in a Fillies’ Novices Stakes over six furlongs at Newmarket racecourse.

Soprano is also set to run a decent race and this filly also has a victory under her belt. When lining up at Newmarket on 5 May, the mare was sent off as the 6/4 favourite before obliging by nearly two lengths. The George Boughey-trained runner was promising enough in that first race although there are other horses with serious claims.

Donnacha O’Brien also has a lively contender in the form of Porta Fortuna, with the two-year-old scoring at The Curragh in mid-April and this was over five furlongs on heavy ground in Ireland. Following on from this, there was an 8/1 success over six furlongs at Naas and perhaps this runner will continue on an upward trajectory.

Matrika runs for Aidan O’Brien and could be the star turn in this race, with the two-year-old having won on good ground over six furlongs. That was in an Irish Fillies Maiden, with Carla’s Way also an interesting runner. A victory over six and a half furlongs at Doncaster Racecourse saw the 5/2 favourite win by over two lengths.
