2023 Flying Five Stakes Betting Odds at Curragh racecourse

Sunday, 10 September 2023

Highfield Princess, Bradsell and Art Power are the market leaders for the Al Basti Equiworld, Dubai Flying Five Stakes, with trio trading at a much shorter price than any other runner in the field. The former looks set to go off favourite, with the John Quinn-trained charge having run impressively this term although there’s only been one win in five outings.

Bradsell has also won just once this term although the Archie Watson-trained runner has been given plenty of credit by the bookies, while Art Power runs for Tim Easterby and perhaps it could be worth looking at the bigger priced horses to see if something can hit the frame at nice racing betting odds.

Highfield Princess sets the benchmark when it comes to the Al Basti Equiworld, Dubai Flying Five Stakes, with the horse recently finishing second in the Coolmore Wootton Bassett Nunthorpe Stakes when beaten by Live In The Dream. That came after the same runner was sent off as the 4/9 favourite to win the King George Qatar Sussex Stakes before duly obliging.

However, Highfield Princess did fail to win the Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Stakes at odds of 11/4 and some punters will feel as though they don’t want to trust a horse who finished second to Bradsell in the King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot, with the latter lining up for this contest at bigger betting odds and perhaps he’s better value.

Archie Watson’s three-year-old finished three quarters of a length behind Highfield Princess in their most recent clash at York, with the younger pretender potentially needing the run after a lay-off of 66 days, while Art Power has clocked up a couple of wins for trainer Tim Easterby this season and also has to be respected.

Most recently, there was a fifth-placed finish in the competitive Arc Prix Maurice de Gheest, with that coming after a victory in the Barberstown Castle Sapphire Stakes at the Curragh on 22 July. It was an impressive showing which saw the horse claim a victory by over four lengths, with the runner having three lengths to find on Shaquille after the July Cup Stakes.
