2023 Victoria Cup Betting Odds at Ascot racecourse

Saturday, 13 May 2023

There’s a cracking Ascot racecard on Saturday and that includes the Victoria Cup which is a Class 2 encounter that takes place over seven furlongs. The draw will be important in determining the winner and the same applies to the latest going. Baradar, Kingdom Come and Fresh are among the favourites although we’re likely to see a big-priced runner hit the frame.

Totally Charming, Rainbow Fire and Rebel Territory can’t be easily discounted, with a decent sum of prize money on the table and we might see as many as twenty-three horses line up for this encounter. The going is likely to be soft after this week’s rainfall and we’re excited to see how four-year-old Kingdom Come performs after passing all of his latest three assignments.

George Boughey is the trainer of Ascot Victoria Cup favourite Baradar, with Kevin Stott on board a horse who seems reasonably well-weighted, with the horse finishing third in the competitive Pertemps Network Lincoln at Doncaster racecourse, with this performance being fairly impressive and that came over one mile on heavy ground.

Last November, the horse was successful at Doncaster when winning over seven furlongs on heavy ground, with Kingdom Come coming next in the betting market. Clive Cox must be quietly confident that his horse will secure the spoils considering that there have been three consecutive wins on the all-weather surface at Kempton Park.

The horse was sent off at even money in a recent handicap over seven furlongs, with this race taking place in early April and that came after a six furlong win over the same distance although this is a big step up for a four-year-old who is trading fractionally shorter in the horse racing odds when it comes to the likes of Fresh and Vafortino.

Fresh is a six-year-old who was fifth in a handicap over six furlongs at Kempton, with the horse running pretty well at an enormous price when finishing midfield in the Qipco British Champions Sprint Stakes, with this coming on good to soft ground over six furlongs. Vafortino finished second at Newmarket and the five-year-old is also one to watch.
