2022 Golden Mile Handicap Betting Odds at Goodwood racecourse

Friday, 29 July 2022

We always look forward to the Golden Mile Handicap which traditionally takes place on Day Four of the Glorious Goodwood meeting, with horses aged three or older able to compete in a race which takes pride of place on the racecard. Montassib certainly looks the part although he is double figure prices like all the other horses.

This horse is trained by William Haggas, with the four-year-old one of the highest-rated runners in the field. However, Thesis has been in the frame on all his four seasonal appearances and there are plenty of others who come to this meeting with strong form under their belts.

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.
