2023 Chesterfield Cup Handicap Betting Odds at Goodwood racecourse

Tuesday, 01 August 2023

Millebosc, Lord Protector and Eagle’s Way are among the leading protagonists for the Coral Chesterfield Cup, with the runners and riders assembling for this third race on Day One of the Glorious Goodwood Festival. The going is set to be good to soft after the recent rainfall in Sussex, with the bookmakers anticipating a wide open encounter over one mile and two furlongs.

Caius Chorister and Haunted Dream are among the other runners worthy of contention, with Pride of America also meriting respect. Watch out for horse racing betting sites providing price boosts for the various runners, with many of the bookmakers having live streaming available and we’re interested to see who goes off favourite.

2023 Coral Chesterfield Cup Tips

Millebosc is a horse that could go well in the Qatar Goodwood Festival, with the five-year-old having last run at York in a competitive encounter. Sent off at 15/2 in the John Smith’s Cup Handicap, the William Haggas-trained charge did drift on the market although many think that the horse is favourably weighted and Tom Marquand should be able to provide a decent spin.

Lord Protector was successful last time out and there was a stunning victory at Sandown Park last time out, with the five-year-old having won the Coral Play ‘Racing-Super-Series’ For Free Handicap when obliging over one mile and two furlongs, with the horse previously losing by a neck at Sandown when narrowly missing out to Paradias.

Eagle’s Way finished second at Yarmouth on his last outing and the four-year-old only missed out by a head when running well over one mile and two furlongs. Back in September, there was a victory at Pontefract and Sir Mark Prescott saddles a runner that has to be considered from an each-way betting point-of-view.

We quite like the look of Pride Of America and the horse surprised a few people when claiming a victory in the John Smith’s Cup Handicap although the big question is whether the runner can cope with the weight which has been apportioned on this occasion. However, there was a handicap win a Chester earlier this season.
