2023 Mallard Handicap Betting Odds at Doncaster racecourse

Friday, 15 September 2023

Fox Journey has achieved two wins from six appearances this season, with Sir Michael Stoute bidding to secure a victory at the St Leger meeting. Aimeric could be the horse to go off favourite and the four-year-old was successful in his last encounter. However, the weight could be prohibitive compared to others in the race.

Bague D’Or is a five-year-old with bright prospects and James Ferguson will be confident that his runner can perform well over one mile, six and a half furlongs. Fox Journey has achieved back to back third placed finishes and there needs to be an improvement from Berkshire Rocco who has yet to score a win this season.

2023 Mallard Handicap Tips

Aimeric is the horse regarded as the most likely winner of the Betfred Mallard Handicap, with Roger Varian training a runner who was a September winner when obliging with a victory at Beverley. Sent off as the 7/4 favourite in the William Hill Summer Handicap, there was a victory over one mile and four furlongs which sets him up well for this clash.

It’s cleat that the horse will benefit from a quicker surface after finishing dead last in the Bet365 Trophy at Newmarket Racecourse, with Bague D’Or another runner who merits respect and the five-year-old was second last time out. In the Sky Bet Handicap at York Racecourse, there was less than two lengths behind winner Marhaba The Champ.

Fox Journey is a talented three-year-old who could be open to further progression, with the runner obliging with a third-placed finish in the Melrose Handicap at York Racecourse, with this coming towards the end of August. The horse also ran into the places in the Coral Handicap at Goodwood Racecourse, with the winner claiming the Quickmove Handicap at Newbury.

Berkshire Rocco was able to run into fifth place out of twenty-two runners when running in the Ebor Handicap at the Knavesmire, with the horse performing well at betting odds of 28/1. Over one mile and six furlongs, it was a relatively smart outing in a race that also included Sweet William and winner Absurde. We recommend each-way bets when it comes to this clash.
