2023 Ribblesdale Stakes Betting Odds at Ascot racecourse

Thursday, 22 June 2023

The Ribblesdale Stakes is a quality Group 2 encounter where some of the most talented three-year-old fillies battle it out over a relatively long distance. This is a one mile, four furlong encounter, with Infinite Cosmos trained by Sir Michael Stoute and looking to continue on an upward trajectory against eighteen rivals.

Indeed, there are as many as nineteen horses that can line up here and Savethelastdance is an interesting runner who has scored twice for Aidan O’Brien already this season. Soul Sister has also enjoyed back-to-back wins and the same goes for Warm Heart who is another O’Brien runner who will have serious claims when it comes to capturing a victory.

2023 Ribblesdale Stakes Tips

Infinite Cosmos is a filly that started out at Doncaster when finishing second in a Maiden Fillies’ Stakes before an accomplished victory at Newmarket in early May, with the 8/11 favourite landing a win by over four lengths. However, the runner was beaten by two other horses despite being the market leader in the Tattersalls Musidora Stakes.

Interestingly, the horse that won that particular race was Soul Sister and perhaps it’s worth a second look at the John & Thady Gosden-trained charge. Frankie Dettori has a strong record in this race and the horse was able to win by four lengths, with the filly coming into the race after a victory in the Epsom Oaks when winning by two lengths over one mile and four furlongs.

In second place for the 2023 Oaks was Savethelastdance and this horse was sent off as the 5/6 favourite before falling short in this classice race at Newmarket. Perhaps this runner will bounce back considering there was a success when sent off as 8/11 favourite in the Cheshire Oaks before claiming an amazing twenty-two length victory.

Bluestocking is a Juddmonte-owned runner and we wouldn’t be hugely surprised if Ralph Beckett was able to land a victory with this horse. Last time out, it was a second-placed finish in the Haras De Bouquetot Fillies' Trial Stakes where the horse was a head away from victory over one mile and two furlongs, having originally won over a mile at Salisbury Racecourse.

2022 Ribblesdale Stakes Tips

This is one of the biggest horse races when it comes to Day Three of the 2022 Royal Ascot meeting, with Life Of Dreams having an interesting profile and perhaps this filly will give Charlie Appleby his first winner when it comes to the 2022 Ribblesdale Stakes.

The horse made his debut when winning the Maiden Fillies’ Stakes, with the runner obliging as the 4/5 favourite over one mile and two furlongs. The Godolphin-owned charge then stepped up in class and competed favourably in the Tattersalls Musidora Stakes over one mile, two-and-a-half furlongs.

Emily Upjohn was able to oblige as the 4/7 favourite, with Life Of Dreams finishing five and a half lengths behind although the competition might not be as stiff. The big question is whether a lack of experience might prove telling.

Beyond the two Appleby horses, Emily Upjohn could take her chances in this race although the John Gosden-trained runner has a number of Royal Ascot entries. In four of the past five renewals of the race, the handler has experienced success with Coronet, Star Catcher, Frankly Darling and Loving Dream.
