2023 Bengough Stakes Betting Odds at Ascot racecourse

Saturday, 07 October 2023

There could be as many as fifteen runners going to post for the 2023 Bengough Stakes, with Commanche Falls trading at the shortest betting odds to land a victory. Michael Dods has a runner who has been landing plenty of prize money this season, although the market suggests that we’re likely to see at least one horse too good for this runner.

Perhaps that runner will be Annaf who was successful last time out. In a field of twenty-two runners, the horse was able to oblige at Doncaster Racecourse. This came after a solid performance in the Betfair Sprint Cup Stakes at Haydock Park, with the runner sent off at 66/1 and we could see the charge continue to be progressive.

2023 Bengough Stakes Tips

Commanche Falls is a horse that merits respect after securing a number of wins, with the six-year-old having won at York on 10 September, with Connor Beasley steering the charge to a victory against Juan Les Pins who will also be in this race. This came after a fourth-placed finish in a Phoenix Sprint Stakes over six furlongs.

In the bet365 Hackwood Stakes at Newbury over six furlongs, with the horse securing a victory by a head. This came after a win over six furlongs at The Curragh, with the same jockey on board a talented runner who is heavily likely to be favourite for a race where Annaf and Juan Les Pins are other contenders.

Annaf’s win at Doncaster was even the more impressive considering the horse dwelt at the start and there could be a smarter performance to come, with the other strong performance of note being a third-placed finish in the King’s Stand Stakes at the Royal Ascot meeting, with Michael Appleby having a talented performer on his hands.

Juan Les Pins has run Commanche Falls close already this season and there was less than a length that separated the two horses in the Garrowby Stakes, with the horse having finished third in the Hopeful Stakes at Newmarket. A tenth-placed finish in the Coral Stewards’ Cup at Glorious Goodwood suggests there is more to come.
