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.
