2022 Coventry Stakes Betting Odds at Ascot racecourse

Tuesday, 14 June 2022

Persian Force is the uncertain favourite for the 2022 Coventry Stakes and we’re interested to see which horse will follow in the footsteps of 2021 winner Berkshire Shadow. This is a clash for juvenile horses which has previously thrown up some unpredictable outcomes, with Calyx, Arizona and Nando Parrado some of the other recent winners.

Persian Force runs for trainer Richard Hannon who might regard this horse as his best chance of recording a Royal Ascot winner, with successes at Doncaster and Newbury indicating that this runner has strong claims in a race against other untested runners.

2022 Coventry Stakes Tips

Persian Force was last seen in a three-runner race at Newbury where the two-year-old obliged in the BetVictor Condition Stakes. Having been sent off as 8/13 favourite, it doesn’t tell us a huge amount about the horse’s prospects here, although a comfortable win at Doncaster in March over five furlongs means that he’s one for the shortlist here.

Noble Style runs in the familiar Godolphin colours and the Charlie Appleby-trained runner was the 6/4 winner of the Jemima Howden Novice Stakes, with an impressive finish at Ascot potentially suggesting this is the horse to back each-way when it comes to the 2022 Coventry Stakes.

Aidan O’Brien will undoubtedly experience some success over the five-day Royal Ascot meeting and perhaps his first winner will come in this race. Little Big Bear finished second in an Irish Maiden before winning at Naas in May and perhaps this represents Ireland’s best chance of success in this encounter.

2021 Coventry Stakes Betting Tips

Trainer Clive Cox scored a rare Royal Ascot winner last year in the 2020 Coventry Stakes when winning with Nando Parrado, with the horse winning at amazing betting odds of 150/1 and one wonders if they’ll be a similar shock this time around considering that the field once again looks wide open.

Some of the leading bookmakers have started to provide Royal Ascot antepost betting odds when it comes to the 2021 Coventry Stakes, with punters able to back any horse at 9/1 or bigger considering the field is yet to be confirmed for a race that traditionally takes place on Day One of the Royal Ascot meeting.

Cadamosto Heads the 2021 Coventry Stakes Betting Market

Part of the reason why this race is often unpredictable is that it’s a two-year-old encounter and some of the juveniles in the encounter have barely had an outing before stepping foot on the Ascot racetrack, with no form next to their names on the Royal Ascot racecard.

Cadamosto has been installed as the antepost Coventry Stakes betting favourite and it’s hardly a surprise to see an Aidan O’Brien-trained horse as the market leader, with the runner having performed brightly on the all-weather track at Dundalk to win the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden over seven furlongs.

Ryan Moore is likely to be on board for the horse for this six furlong dash, although there are lots of other viable contenders and that includes Masseto who is trained by Donnacha O’Brien so we might well see a victory for one family member come 15th June.

Masseto has only one run to his name although this was a maiden victory at Navan at the end of April and the horse has therefore earned his opportunity to line up in the 2021 Coventry Stakes where he’s likely to be among the favourites.

Berkshire Shadow, Tenebrism and Navello Also Among Favourites

Trainer Andrew Balding has never won the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot, although his father Ian Balding scored a famous success with the legendary Mill Reef in 1970 and perhaps the former will follow in his footsteps with the aptly-named Berkshire Shadow who is likely to take his chances in this race.

The two-year-old had his first proper outing at Newbury Racecourse on 16 April where we saw the horse make all the running and oblige at betting odds of 9/2, with Oisin Murphy on board the charge on that occasion and we might see the same booking here.

Tenebrism is another Aidan O’Brien charge who has to be respected and he scored a maiden victory at Naas on 28 March, while Navello is already an experienced two-year-old after four outings to date and the most recent of these took place at Chester where the horse obliged as the 5/4 favourite.
