2022 Hardwicke Stakes Betting Odds at Ascot racecourse

Saturday, 18 June 2022

Hurricane Lane is a horse that has top billing when it comes to the 2022 Hardwicke Stakes, with this runner having proven to be impressive to date. The four-year-old could be banker material in the eyes of many and it could be a straight tussle between the favourite and Bay Bridge in this encounter.

Al Aasy and Third Realm are among the favourites who could also make an impression and it’s worth looking out for the Royal Ascot betting sites who are offering extra places as there are likely to be as many as nineteen horses lining up for this clash.

2022 Hardwicke Stakes Tips

Hurricane Lane is set to make his seasonal debut at the 2022 Royal Ascot meeting and it will be intriguing to see if the four-year-old can continue the excellent form which was apparent last season.

The horse has already achieved six wins during a relatively short career and Godolphin decided to send him to Longchamp last autumn where he competed favourably in the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe where Hurricane Lane finished in third place.

The runner was sent off as the 3/1 favourite and found shock winner Torquator Tasso and Tarnawa as the only horses who were too strong, with the horse previously triumphing in the Cazoo St Leger Stakes and it explains why the runner is heading the Royal Ascot betting for this clash.

This runner has bags of experience and that includes finishing third in the 2021 Derby, while the horse went on to win the Irish Derby. There was also a trip to Longchamp where the 17/10 favourite won the Grand Prix de Paris.

However, Bay Bridge is set to prove some stiff competition and the four-year-old has now racked up five consecutive wins in total. In the Coral Brigadier Gerard Stakes, the runner was able to oblige against favourite Mostahdaf and it was a convincing five-length win.
