2023 Wokingham Stakes Betting Odds at Ascot racecourse

Saturday, 24 June 2023

There is plenty of each-way value knocking around when it comes to the 2023 Wokingham Stakes, with a huge field making it somewhat difficult to find a winner of this Royal Ascot race. However, Orazio might well go off as the SP favourite, with the Charles Hills-trained runner having scooped back to back wins in the lead-up to this race.

Khanjar was second on the latest outing and has bold each-way claims ahead of this encounter, with Jumby having landed the spoils on a recent outing and Eve Johnson Houghton will now hope that her five-year-old can oblige despite carrying significantly more weight than the majority of horses in the field.

2023 Wokingham Stakes Tips

Orazio will have William Buick on board and the four-year-old was able to oblige as the 13/8 favourite when winning over six furlongs on soft ground. This was a comfortable win and it came after a 9/1 success in the Weatherbys Digital Solutions Handicap. The horse could represent each-way value although there are plenty of horses with a lively chance.

Khanjar was last seen running at Hamilton where the horse was sent off as the 5/4 favourite in a six furlong handicap race on good to firm ground. That came after a midfield finish in a York handicap encounter, with Jumby an interesting contender who was able to win the Sky Bet John of Gaunt Stakes over seven furlongs on good to firm ground.

Fresh is also set to line up here and was underwhelming when finishing 19th out of 22 runners at Ascot last time out. However, the James Fanshawe-trained was able to win successive races at the same racecourse last year, with Lethal Levi trading at a similar price and the horse was able to finish second last time out.

Perhaps Bielsa will be able to deliver again after emerging victorious at York last time out and that win came in a big field of twenty-one runners. This came after a second-placed finish at Redcar, with punters recommend to potentially take two or three runners against the field and the bookies will be offering extra places here.

2022 Wokingham Stakes Tips

James Fanshawe’s best chance of a 2022 Royal Ascot winner could be Fresh. The five-year-old turned out in the tote Victoria Cup and was sent off as a 7/1 shot before winding up in fourth place. Having made headway two furlongs out, the horse simply ran out of steam and found a handful too strong.

Previously to this, there was a runner-up performance on the all-weather at Kempton Racecourse, with Blackrod potentially the other horse to keep an eye on. This is a charge who is trained by Michael Dods and the four-year-old was able oblige in a recent handicap race at Newmarket.

There was also a win at York Racecourse in the Sky Bet Apprentice Handicap, with the horse knowing how to win after accruing four victories to date. Another horse with some wins to his name is Great Ambassador, with the experienced five-year-old potentially a good each-way wager here.

Ed Walker could have something special on his hands and the horse was second in the Ayr Gold Cup handicap after previously landing the spoils in a listed race at York. He was also sent off as favourite at Goodwood Racecourse, with this runner potentially the best each-way punt.
