2023 Cumberland Lodge Stakes Betting Odds at Ascot racecourse

Saturday, 07 October 2023

It could be that William Haggas holds all the aces when it comes to the Jim Barry Cumberland Lodge Stakes. The trainer has the front two in the betting market for this one mile, four furlong encounter, with Hamish having enjoyed a flawless season so far. The horse is bidding to land a fourth consecutive victory and the seven-year-old looks rock solid.

However, Al Aasy has produced some fine performances this term and has also been respected by the layers, with Israr and White Birch the other runners with a lively each-way chance according to the racing odds. The former could go well for trainers John & Thady Gosden, while White Birch is a talented three-year-old who could be progressive.

Hamish has been exemplary so far this season and the horse will now aim to secure a fourth consecutive victory of the campaign. The seven-year-old kicked off with a win in the Ormonde Stakes at Chester over one mile, five and a half furlongs. There was then a narrow win as the 4/9 favourite when winning the John Smith’s Silver Cup Stakes at York.

Better was to follow in the King’s Plate Glorious Stakes at Goodwood Racecourse, with the horse obliging as the 5/6 favourite and this four-length victory outlines solid credentials when it comes to this weekend’s encounter. Some would argue that the horse is still a value price to land a win although there are some tough opponents.

Al Aasy was a smart performer in the Paddy Power Stakes at Leopardstown, with the horse missing out by just half a length when losing to favourite Adelaide River. The runner kept on well over one mile and four furlongs, with that coming after a win in the Rose of Lancaster Stakes at Haydock Park.

Israr could be the best of the rest, with the horse having been somewhat disappointing on the all-weather at Kempton Park last time out. However, the horse did perform brightly when landing a victory against three rivals in the Princess of Wales’s Stakes at Newmarket over one mile and four furlongs.
