2023 Coral Golden Mile Tips

Lattam could be a lively contender in the Coral Golden Mile, with the four-year-old having run and won last time out on the all-weather at Newcastle. This was towards the end of June when the 9/4 favourite claimed a victory over one mile, while the horse was second to Jimi Hendrix in the Spring Cup Handicap when being sent off as 2/1 favourite.

Perotto was able to secure a victory when the horse last ran, with Roger Varian saddling a five-year-old who was able to oblige at Sandown Park in early July. The 5/1 joint-favourite was able to secure the spoils under a steady ride from Tom Marquand, with this coming after finishing in tenth in the Royal Hunt Cup.

David O’Meara’s best chance of success could come in the form of Blue For You, with the five-year-old having won at York Racecourse in his previous outing. The runner was impressive when scoring in the John Smith’s Racing Handicap, with the horse winning by three lengths although there was a lowly performance in the Royal Hunt Cup.

Brave Emperor and Dutch Decoy come next in the betting, with the latter having recently won on the July course at Newmarket. That win was in the Lettergold Handicap over one mile, with the horse finishing third to Perotto at Sandown. As for Dutch Decoy, the three-year-old was well below par when finishing second to last in the Hampton Court Stakes at Royal Ascot.


2022 Golden Mile Handicap Tips

Montassib lined up in the bet365 Bunbury Cup and acquitted himself well over seven furlongs when finishing fourth out of eighteen runners. The horse was the 4-1 joint-favourite after a fifth-placed finish in the Buckingham Palace Stakes, with this runner likely to be among the places.

However, Thesis is a horse that catches the eye considering that the Harry & Roger Charlton-trained runner simply has better form this season. Ryan Moore got a tune out of the horse in the Britannia Stakes at Royal Ascot, with the three-year-old getting up by a head and that came hard on the heels of three second-placed finishes.

Whoputfiftyinyou was fourth to Thesis in that race, with the Clive Cox-trained runner securing a handicap win over seven furlongs in Newbury. Then came a Silver Bowl Handicap triumph at Haydock Park in late May, with this horse worthy of consideration based on overall showings.

Trainer Charles Hills has a couple of lively contenders, with Dark Shift coming into this race after winning the Royal Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot. That was over the same distance of one mile, with The Attorney having finished just behind Montassib in the bet365 Bunbury Cup and there is a solid case on an each-way basis.


Golden Mile Handicap betting odds

There is a maximum of twenty runners that can line up in a race where the prize money is around £100,000 to the winner, with this encounter generally favouring the horses that are given the lowest kind of draw, with the majority of recent winners getting stall eight or lower.

Similarly, the vast majority of encounters have more recently been won by three and four-year-olds who make up the bulk of the entries, with punters needing to look at horses who have an official rating between 99-106.

Other key pointers when it comes to the Golden Mile Handicap betting trends is the fact that many of the previous winners have run at Newmarket, while you are ideally looking for horses who have a recent run under their belt.

Who Are Favourites to Win 2021 Golden Mile Handicap?

Saeed Bin Suroor is always looking for ways to win races at the Glorious Goodwood meeting and perhaps he has a potential superstar in the form of Real World, with the runner having finished fourth or better in every horse race this season.

There wasn’t huge expectation ahead of the Royal Hunt Cup on 16 June 2021 considering that Real World was sent off at 18/1, although he handled the one mile distance particularly well and there were a series of impressive runs at Meydan between December and March.

Marcus Tregoning also has a lively contender in the form of Perotto, with an 18/1 success in the Britannia Stakes taking place over a mile and there was also a great triumph in the Sussex Roof Garden Handicap at Goodwood which could mark him out for success here.

William Haggas has a horse running in this race, with Ametist having recently scored a double at Newmarket. Tom Marquand was on board the runner when triumphing at short odds in the seven furlong encounter in June, with this coming after an even money success in the Betway Handicap.
